NARRATIVE OF A VISIT TO BRAZIL, CHILE, PERU, AND THE SANDWICH ISLANDS, DURING THE YEARS 1821 AND 1822. WITH MISCELLANEOUS REMARKS ON THE PAST AND PRESENT STATE, AND POLITICAL PROSPECTS OF THOSE COUNTRIES
London. 1825.. xii,478pp. plus four color plates, folding map, errata page, and [2]pp. of advertisements. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Light wear to edges and extremities. Front hinge starting. Some light foxing to map, else internally clean. An attractive, very good copy. The author sailed from Lisbon to Rio in 1821, visiting the Swiss settlement of Nova Friburgo. He then boarded an American brig destined for Chile and Peru, and at Callao he took another ship to the Sandwich Islands. Includes a folding map of the Sandwich Islands and beautiful color plates depicting Peruvian women and a native Sandwich Islander. Sabin and Borba de Moraes call for four plates, as in this copy, but the copy in the Hill collection contains only three. "Of the 170pp. on Brazil the best passage is the description of the attempted Swiss colonization, at that time in full decay, and general remarks about Brazilian progress" - Borba de Moraes. A scarce Pacific voyage. SABIN 46858. HILL 1105. ABBEY 700. JUDD 119. BORBA DE MORAES, p.536. RODRIGUES 1565.
