(cgc) Thisis a fine press edition from the very rare 1802 edition; this edition isequally rare. The commander of the expedition was Don DionysioAlcala-Galiano, who was probably the author of this work. See Sabin69221. The text of the rare first edition is faithfully followed, printedon fine paper, and is accompanied by the same maps and plates. Howescalls this an "important voyage up the Pacific coast and the last to beundertaken by Spain ; written probably by the commander, Galiano, butattributed also to Jose de Espinosa y Tello. and to Cayetano Valdes. The Introduccion,' giving a splendid historical sketch of earlier Spanishexplorations in the same region, was the work of the maritime authority,[Martin Fernandez de] Navarrette." Henry R. Wagner suggests that the mapsare better in some respects than Vancouver's and were used by Humboldtas models for his Essai Politique sur le Royaume de la Nouvelle Espagne(1811). Exceptionally scarce, even in this Second Edition which wasproduced in thick card wraps, it is very rare in this binding. Strathern167(I); Howes (Gallano]. G18; Sabin 66221; Streeter 2458]. We found norecords that mention this de-luxe binding. .
