About this Item

Small 8vo. Faux vellum with gilt emblem and spine lettering and cord ties housed in brown cloth solander case with paper labels and red felt lining. (14pp), 112pp; (10pp), 97pp. Very good/near fine. Blank "From the Library of" bookplate (not filled in) on front pastedown and large abrasion likely from bookplate removal on rear pastedown. A tight and handsome copy of this well-done facsimile of the first edition of Ralegh's 1596 "The Discoverie of Guiana" (published in London by Robert Robinson) and the first edition in English of Galvao's 1601 "The Discoveries of the World" (published in London by Richard Hakluyt). Accompanied by a 20pp 12mo near fine pamphlet featuring two explanatory essays, A.L. Rowse's "Ralegh's Voyage" and "Galvao's Discoveries," with Robert O. Dougan's "Bibliographical Notes" for each. Delightful back-to-back facsimiles of these two important exploration narratives -- in original form practically unattainable at any price -- attractively presented in a nice clamshell case.
