A Voyage in the South Seas... with Particular Details of the Gallipagos (sic) and Washington Islands
Lon., 1823.. b/w plates. Something of an oddity. The keynote of Porter’s career - and of his published narrative - was his campaign in the Pacific against British shipping during the War of 1812. His book was first published in America in 1815. It appeared eight years later in London, with all the anti-British passages cut out. This edition features three plates and a folding map of the Galapagos Islands. See Hill, 1374. Howes P-484. A handsome, untrimmed copy, rebound in half morocco over marbled boards. An excellent copy of a scarce book.
