Discoveries of the French in 1768 & 1769, to the South-East of New Guinea
London,: John Stockdale,, 1791.. Quarto, with 12 folding charts, some browning and offsetting to the plates; a very good copy in contemporary polished half calf, marbled boards, hinges a bit chipped and worn, but still very firm, a little bumped and rubbed, inoffensive mark to base of spine. An attractive copy of the first English edition of the great work on the French discovery of the Solomon Islands.As might be expected given its connection to Governor Phillip's Voyage to Botany Bay, this was published by John Stockdale, publisher of both Phillip and of many other works on New South Wales and the First Fleet.Beddie, 1302, 1303; Hill, 611; Kroepelien, 437.
