ETAT-PRESENT DE LA LOUISIANE, AVEC TOUTES LES PARTICULARITES DE CETTE PROVINCE D'AMERIQUE, POUR SERVIR DE SUITE A L'HISTOIRE DES ETABLISSEMENS DES EUROPEENS DANS LES DEUX INDES
The Hague: Chez Frederic Staatman, 1776.. 147,[2]pp. Antique-style three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Occasional light tanning. Very good. Streeter describes this as the second edition, somewhat rearranged, of Champigny's LA LOUISIANE ENSANGLANTEE, a work issued with a false London imprint (actually Paris) in 1773. Howes, however, gives the two titles separate entries. "An absorbing account of the trial and punishment of leading French citizens of Louisiana, inflicted on them by Alexander O'Reilly, the Spanish Governor of the province at its transfer from France to Spain after the Seven Years War" - Streeter. Louisiana had been turned over by the French to the Spanish in the peace settlement in 1763, as part of France's ejection from North America by the victorious English and Spanish. The French citizens of Louisiana resented the weak Spanish government, and attempted a coup against it in 1768. The uprising was put down with vengeance by O'Reilly, sent to establish absolute Spanish authority. This book discusses in detail events from 1762, when the cession was agreed to, through 1771. HOWES C278, "b." STREETER SALE 1569. SABIN 11824.
