About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for A Voyage Round the World, in the Years MDCCXL, I, II, III, IV by ANSON, George.

Description:

Quarto. 42 folding engravings. Contemporary calf gilt. One of the landmark 18th-century English circumnavigations, made not so much for discovery and exploration but as an armed naval expedition to cut off Spanish supplies of wealth from South America after the outbreak of war between Britain and Spain in 1739. Indeed, Anson succeeded in doing this by taking a number of Spanish prize ships and a laden Manila galleon near the Philippines, but at heavy cost. Six of his fleet's vessels were sunk or wrecked on the South American coast or in rounding Cape Horn after their passage through the Strait of Le Maire, many men died of scurvy, and surviving crew were forced to litigate for their share of the prize money. Some of the fame of the expedition lies in the published accounts of survivors of Anson's ship Wager, wrecked off the Patagonian coast and vividly described by Bulkeley and Cummins, John Byron, Young, and Campbell. Anson's voyage laid the groundwork for the British voyages of exploration in the Pacific of the latter half of the 18th century, and Walter produced a masterpiece of descriptive travel that became the most popular book of maritime adventure of the time. Although generally accepted that the work was written by Walter, it seems to have been revised and edited by Benjamin Robins. Cox I p.49; Headland 109; Hill 1817; Sabin 101175. Rebacked, joints weak, some chipping to plate edges not affecting images, contents leaf sprung, some occasional pale staining. Bookseller Inventory # 400579

Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1754 edition. Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper.
