Inventaire du senau, la Polly de Londres ... [Sale particulars for the ship, Polly, of London, to be sold in Bordeaux].
Bordeaux: de l?Imprimerie Frères Labottière ... [ : 1766]. : Single sheet (535 í- 420 mm). Woodcut armorial device at head. Trace of two old folds, paper slightly thin in four places at verso after apparent removal from a mount (not affecting text), but fine and fresh overall. : A broadside advertisement for the sale of an English ship, Polly, in the port of Bordeaux, 18 January 1766. The Polly is described as being of 160 tons, of ?construction Angloise? and is offered complete with anchors, sails, cordage, navigational instruments (including four clocks) and various items of galley equipment. Polly was a relatively common ship name, but we find only one vessel so named of this tonnage and port of registration in contemporary Lloyd?s Registers: the Register for 1764-67 lists a Polly of London inspected before a voyage to South Carolina; it was a ship of 160 tons, built in the Plantation colonies (probably in 1763), owned by G. Curling and master, R. Hooper (we are grateful to Anne Cowne of Lloyds Register of Shipping, London for this information).
