BESKRIFNING OFVER SVENSKA VESTINDISKA ON SR. BARTHELEMI, SAMT OARNE ST. EUSTACHE OCH ST. CHRISTOPHER.
Stockholm: Anders Zetterberg, . 1795 - [8],207pp. plus folding plate and folding map. Contemporary three-quarter calf and speckled boards. Spine worn and rubbed. Later ink ownership signature on front pastedown. Internally bright and clean. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. The first edition of Euphrasén's description of the flora and fauna of St. Barts, St. Christopher, and St. Eustachius, and includes the large folding map of St. Barts. Sabin records a 1798 German edition, which was not issued with plates. The work is divided into sections by island and is presented as a series of brief descriptions rather than a cohesive narrative. The author was for many years the pastor of the church at Lorient in St. Barts, and this book is one of the primary sources for the island in its Swedish period, as well as containing the first map of that vaunted refuge of jet-setters. An attractive early scientific investigation of the Lesser Antilles region. Scarce. OCLC locates a total of ten copies. BEINECKE LESSER ANTILLES 470. BELL E161. SABIN 23107 (another ed). OCLC 12245731, 186869671.
