About this Item

First edition. 8vo, unbound. 112. A bright, clean and very well preserved copy, unopened. SCARCE FIRST EDITION. The author recounts his voyage to the South Seas and the northwest coast of South America aboard the merchant vessel Le Bordelais. The expedition was organized to procure goods to trade with the Chinese, since the maritime commerce of France had been severely curtailed by the revolution and its aftermath. De Roquefeuil’s commanding naval officer recommended him to direct the expedition, and "as there was little appearance of my being able to gratify, on board the King’s ships, my love of a sea-faring life, and as a voyage round the world had always been a favourite project with me, the proposal made to me could not fail to be agreeable.".
