Extra engraved title and 45 interesting copper engravings including 6 maps. Small folio, old calf (rubbed). London: Blome and Bishop, 1638. Second Edition Revised and Enlarged by the Author. A very good clean tight copy. Sir. Thomas Herbert made an extensive tour in Persia, Cape of Good Hope, Madagascar, and Surat, and coasted the Eastern shores of North America on his return to England. His account of these travels is written in a lively and agreeable style, and among the most curious of its contents is a dissertation to prove that America was discovered three hundred years before Columbus by the Welshman, Madoc ap Owen.
