About this Item: University of Oklahoma Press, 1978. Soft cover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. ix+326 pages with maps and index. Royal octavo (9 1/2" x 6 1/4") issued in gold cloth with black and gilt lettering to spine. Translated by John J TePaske and Besse A Clement. Edited with introduction by John J TePaske. 1st American edition. In 1735 a team of French scientists went to Ecuador to measure a degree on the equator in order to determine the precise shape and girth of the earth. Accompanying the expedition as watchdogs for Philip V of Spain were two Spanish naval officers, Jorge Juan and Antonio de Ulloa, exemplars of enlightenment through and sensitive, perceptive observers. For ten years while working with the French team the viewed daily life in most of Spanish South America, and eventually published a widely read, glowing description of this area. At the same time they wrote a second manuscript of an entirely different sort: a confidential report to the king and his ministers describing corruption, graft, brutality, smuggling, immorality, extortion, and a host of other evils pervading the Spanish colonial system in the viceroyalty of Peru. The manuscript discussed in detail economic life, military conditions, weakness and corruption in imperial administration, and the plight of the Indians. The report subsequently circulated among royal bureaucrats in Madrid and became the basis for a number of imperial reforms of the last half of the eighteenth century. One of the copies of the report slipped out of Spain and was published in London in 1826 in a Spanish edition, primarily as a postscript to the wars of independence in Spanish America. Partial and full editions of the work appeared later in the midnineteenth and twentieth centuries. However, this is the first English edition, and the only translation ever made from the original report. Few works on the Spanish Empire can compare with it for style or perception; it ranks with Alexander von Humboldt's Political Essay on the Kingdom of New Spain as one of the keenest analyses of Spanish colonial life and institutions. Written in the first person, primarily by Antonio de Ulloa, the Work provides a unique insight into the politics and morality of the Spanish imperial system. Condition: Small sticker residue on front end paper else a near fine copy in like jacket. Seller Inventory # CA0006

About this Item: Instituto de Estudios Peruanos, Lima, Perú, 2016. Soft cover. Condition: New. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Antonio de Ulloa (1716-1795) fue un oficial naval español, experto en ciencias naturales y en la administración colonial. Junto con el marino Jorge Juan y Santacilia integró la expedición geodésica de Charles-Marie La Condamine a Quito en 1735. Retornaron a España en 1744, después de haber analizado las condiciones económicas y políticas de la región andina. Escribieron entonces la Relación histórica del viaje a la América Meridional y un informe reservado en el que describieron los fraudes y abusos que campeaban en los Andes. Ulloa fue uno de los descubridores del platino y recorrió Europa a inicios de 1750 con el fin de estudiar nuevas tecnologías y reclutar técnicos para España. Se desempeñó como gobernador de las minas de mercurio de Huancavelica entre 1757 y 1764 y, posteriormente, en Lousiana entre 1766 y 1768. Durante el decenio de 1780 comandó las operaciones navales españolas. Como científico Ulloa fue una de las figuras más destacadas de la Ilustración española. Brown y Hernández anotan en el estudio introductorio, ¿esta Relación es un testamento que [.] revela la fascinación de Ulloa sobre los aspectos tecnológicos de la producción de mercurio, su obsesión por la protección de los intereses fiscales y económicos de la Corona y su determinación en proveer un buen gobierno para Huancavelica¿.

Verfasst vom spanischen Mathematiker Jorge Juan de Santacilia (1712-1774) und dem Admiral und Statistiker Antonio de Ulloa (1716-1795) gehört das im 1748 zuerst in spanischer Sprache erschienene Werk (erste englische Ausgabe 1758) zu den am besten und weitestgehend wissenschaftlich zuverlässig dokumentierten Forschungsberichten des 18. Jahrhunderts.„This voyage arose out of the desire of the French Government (through the Academy of Sciences at Paris) to send certain members of the Academy of Sciences to measure a degree of longitude in the equinoctial countries of Peru. This request was not only accorded in the most courteous manner, but the King of Spain conceived the idea of sharing the honor of a scheme devoted to the advancement of knowledge, and sent two of the most scientific officers of the Spanish navy to accompany the expedition. This party carried on a series of operations of unexampled difficulty and encountered hardships and sufferings which demanded the strength of the strongest constitutions and the energy of minds stimulated by a love of science. Much information was collected and published, which has been reproduced in other works on South America" (Cox). „Leur mission était de déterminer la figure et la grandeur de la Terre. Ils choisirent le pays de Quito, situé sous la ligne équinoxiale, pour le théâtre de leurs observations. Ils débarquèrent en 1736, et commencèrent à mesurer les degrés terrestres près de l'équateur" (Hoefer). Die feingestochenen Tafeln zeigen Karten, Pläne und Einwohner von Porto Bello, City of Quito, Cartagena de los Indios, Lima, Callao etc., eine Tafeln mit einem atemberaubendem Vulkanausbruch, dem Transport eines Pferdes in einer Seilbahn über einen reißenden Fluss, idyllische Eingeborenenhütten und Kolonialarchitektur, Landschaftsansichten, Tierdarstellungen (Lamas), Instrumente zur Bearbeitung der Erde, von Eisen etc., Schiffe und vieles mehr. Die Karten sind sehr detailreich und fein gestochen. Nur leicht gebräunt, kaum fleckig, wenige unwesentliche Papierläsuren, insgesamt schönes Exemplar in sehr schönen, stilvollen Einbänden eines wahrhaften Meisterbuchbinders. Aus der Bibliothek von "Samuel Eliot Morison" mit dessen Exlibris. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION: Third English edition of this very rare account to South America.

Memoires philosophiques, historiques, physiques, concernant la de: Ulloa, Antonio de

About this Item: Chez Buisson, 1787. Hardcover. Condition: Good. 1st Edition. 2 volumes: 576+xv pages; 499+xv pages. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 1/2") bound in 3/4 period leather. Translated from the first German edition (1781) which includes a chapter entitled: "Observations and additions to by Johann Gottlob Theaenus Schneider". Translated with additional notes and reviews by Jean Baptiste Lefebvre Villebrune. First Spanish edition published in 1772 (Madrid). (Sabin 36805) First French edition. Antonio de Ulloa (12 January 1716 – 3 July 1795) was a Spanish general, explorer, author, astronomer, colonial administrator and the first Spanish governor of Louisiana. He was born in Seville, the son of an economist. Ulloa entered the navy in 1733. In 1735 he was appointed with fellow Spaniard Jorge Juan a member of the French Geodesic Mission, a scientific expedition which the French Academy of Sciences was sending to Ecuador to measure a degree of meridian arc at the equator, led by Pierre Bouguer. He remained there from 1736 to 1744, during which time the two Spaniards discovered the element platinum. In 1745, having finished their scientific labors, Ulloa and Jorge Juan prepared to return to Spain, agreeing to travel on different ships in order to minimize the danger of losing the important fruits of their labors. The ship upon which Ulloa was traveling was captured by the British, and he was taken as a prisoner to England. In that country, through his scientific attainments, he gained the friendship of the men of science, and was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of London. In a short time, through the influence of the president of this society, he was released and was able to return to Spain. He published an account of the people and the countries they have met (1748), which was translated into English as A Voyage to South America. He became prominent as a scientist and was appointed to serve on various important scientific commissions. He is to be credited with the establishment of the first museum of natural history, the first metallurgical laboratory in Spain, and the observatory of Cadiz. In 1758 he returned to South America as governor of Huancavelica in Peru and the general manager of the quicksilver mines there. He held this position until 1764. He arrived on 5 March 1766 in New Orleans to serve as the first Spanish governor of West Louisiana. The French colonists refused to recognize Spanish rule, and de Ulloa was expelled from Louisiana by a Creole uprising during the Louisiana Rebellion of 1768. For the remainder of his life he served as a naval officer. In 1779 he became lieutenant-general of the naval forces. As a result of his scientific work in Peru, he published (Madrid, 1784) Relación histórica del viaje á la América Meridional, which contains a full, accurate, and clear description of the greater part of South America geographically, and of its inhabitants and natural history. In collaboration with the Jorge Juan mentioned above, he also wrote Noticias secretas de América, giving valuable information regarding the early religious orders in Spanish America.

About this Item: Printed for L Davis and C Reyers, London, 1758. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. 2 volumes. xxiv509+[iii ad] pages with five folding plates; iv+420+[xviii index] pages with two foldout plates. Octavo (8" x 5 1/4") bound in half leather with five raised bands with red labels in gilt lettering with marbled boards. First English edition. Jorge Juan y Santacilia was a Spanish mathematician, scientist, naval officer, and mariner. Antonio de Ulloa y de la Torre-Giral was a Spanish general of the navy, explorer, scientist, author, astronomer, colonial administrator and the first Spanish governor of Louisiana. He was appointed to that office after France ceded the territory to Spain in 1763, following its defeat by Great Britain in the Seven Years' War. Ulloa's rule was resisted by the French Creole colonists in New Orleans, who expelled him in 1768 from West Louisiana. In 1734, King Philip V of Spain asked Jorge Juan and fellow scientist Antonio de Ulloa to join the French Geodesic Mission organized by the French Academy of Sciences from Paris, under command of the astronomer Louis Godin. The mission was to measure the length of a degree of meridian arc at the Equator in South America and to determine the roundness of the Earth. On 26 May 1735, they left Cadiz in the company of the Marquess of Villagarcía, who had just been appointed Viceroy of Peru. Jorge Juan was on board the ship El Conquistador and Antonio de Ulloa on the frigate Incendio. The expedition traveled to Quito, in present-day Ecuador, and after nine years of careful study, determined that the Earth is not perfectly spherical but is oblate, i.e. flattened at the poles. Juan also successfully measured the heights of the mountains of the Andes using a barometer. Juan remained nine years in America, studying the political and social situation of the Spanish territories. Among other things, he observed a new metal the miners called Platina de Pinto (little silver of the Pinto river). On his return to Spain, King Ferdinand promoted him to captain. For their work and discoveries in Peru, both he and de Ulloa were elected Fellows of the Royal Society, Santacilia in 1749. Condition: Old number stamp to front end paper verso else a very good to fine set. Seller Inventory # E0578
