Journal du voyage fait a la Mer de Sud avec les flibustiers de l'Amerique
chez Jacques le Febvre,, A Paris, 1705 - Cm. 16,5, pp. (12) 443 (1). Bella vignetta in xilografia al frontespizio. Legatura coeva in piena pelle, dorso a nervi con titoli e fregi in oro. Alcune abili reintegrazioni di pelle alle cuffie ed al dorso, rade fioriture a qualche pagina, peraltro esemplare genuino ed in buono stato di conservazione. Alla prima carta di guardia piccola etichetta della libreria Il Polifilo di Milano. Come tutte le edizioni di quest'opera, anche la presente risulta assai rara. Classico della letteratura riguardante il mondo dei pirati. Cfr. Hill (1423): "A rare and charming book. Raveneau de Lussan, a young Frenchman who whished to see the world, sailed from France for San Domingue in 1679. His indebtedness led him to join the buccaneers in search of his fortune. Raveneau spent several months raiding in the West Indies, and several years raiding the Pacific coast between Guatemala and Chile. He details both the romantic and the bleak sides of the buccaneering profession, interwoven with colorful descriptions of the natives of the regions and a clear picture of the Spanish colonies on the Pacific". [Attributes: Hard Cover]
