About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for An Historical and Geographical Description of Formosa by George Psalmanaazaar.

Description:

An account of The Religion, Cuftoms, manners, &c cf the inhabitants. Together with a Relation of what happened to the Author in his Travels; particularly his Conferences with the jesuits, and others, of feveral parts Europe. Alfo the hiftory and Reafons of his Converfion to Chriftianity, with his Objections againft it ( in defence of Paganifm) and thisr Anfwers.A Preface in Vindication of himfelf from the Reflections of jesuit lately come from China, with a Account of what paffed between them.The fecond edition corrected, with many large and ufeful Additon, particularly a new Preface clearly anfwerring every thin that has been objected angaift the Author and the Book. Illuftrated with feveral Cuts. To which are added, A Map, and the Figure of an Idol not in the former Edition. Internally the book is in exceptionally beautiful conditon, including sixteen plates and THREE fold outs. The front and rear paste downs and the ffep and lfep have been at some time relaced or simply added. The brown leather has wonderfully aged. and has four bands to the spine. The spine title is red and gilt and reads History of Formosa. The first edition,s spine reads, Description of Formosa. I have reason to believe that the book was at some time in it's history been rebound, using a contemporary period binding. The rebinding, if it was in fact rebound is beautifully done, and enhances the quality of the entire volume. The book is very sound, tight and square. A rare and wonderful collectible written by an author with a fine mind for fiction. This book is perhaps the best example of a literary HOAX in publishing history. The author an unknown Frenchman it seems came from out of the blue and posed as an expert on formosa and religion ( many different ones) and made up the contents of the book, including maps, costumes, an alphabet, and many other fictions in his imaginary travels through a fictional land where only the name Formosa is real.
