Chez la Veuve de Paul Marret, Amsterdam 1711 - 1711 (the first three volumes, the first bearing the additional legend 'Troisième Edition revûe, corrigée & augmentée d'un volume'), 1714 (the fourth volume), and 1712 (the fifth volume). The separately printed 'Traité des Vents' bound with the second volume, the 'Voyages . . . à la Baie de Campéche' bound in the third, and the 'Voyage de Mr Wafer' bound in the fourth are dated 1715, 1714 and 1714 respectively. Duodecimo, five volumes, with two in-text illustrations plus 34 plates (26 folding) and 11 folding maps. Contemporary mottled calf; spine gilt in compartments, with burgundy morocco title-labels; edges stained red; covers lightly worn; a few trifling splits and tears (not affecting the text) expertly sealed; slight loss to the blank bottom corner tips of two leaves; paper in Volume 3 slightly toned and foxed; trifling signs of use and age; overall in excellent condition. Paul Marret first issued his two-volume French edition of Dampier's 'Nouveau Voyage' in 1698, a year after the original English edition. It was quickly reprinted with the addition of a third volume, the 'Suplément', and later expanded to include the 'Voyage . . . aux Terres Australes', the 'Traité des Vents', and the short accounts of Wood, Sharpe, Cowley and Roberts, translated from 'A Collection of Original Voyages' (1699) edited by William Hacke. The various parts were intended either to be sold separately, or collected in sets bound with uniform titles (as here). This edition was issued posthumously by his widow. See Sabin 18382, but this set appears to have been put together from whichever sheets and plates happened to be at hand in or soon after 1715 (certainly before Marret's 1717 reissue). There is no definitive collation, but, whatever the bibliographical niceties, this remains a scarce and very early collected French edition in attractive original condition.
