Reis rondom de Weereldt
Dordrecht,: Abraham BlussÈ en Zoon, 1772.. Quarto, with an engraved plate and 21 maps, 18 of which are folding; repair to tear in large folding map, a few other tears repaired; some sporadic staining and a waterstain in some lower margins, a few spots but a decent copy in contemporary quarter calf, rubbed, later marbled sides. First Dutch edition of the great voyage account, translated from the original French version by Pieter Leuter, and including most of Forster's footnotes from the English version as well as new footnotes and a 14-page preface by Leuter. Like the Kroepelien copy, this ends on leaf 3F3 (p.414); Rolf du Rietz speculates that the expected fourth leaf was used to make the singleton contents leaf (pp.xxv-vi).Kroepelien, 116; O'Reilly-Reitman, 288.
