About this Item: Paris: Amable Auroy, 1688., 1688. 12mo. pp. 6 p.l., 312, 107. 2 woodcut headpieces & initials. woodcut monogram on title. folding map in facsimile. contemporary calf, gilt back (spine ends & corners worn). Second Edition (first: 1683) of the first and most important of Hennepin’s narratives. A Recollet missionary, Father Hennepin came to New France in 1675, and in 1678, he set out with La Salle to explore the fertile basin of the Mississippi River. While La Salle turned back to raise funds to continue the voyage, Hennepin went on to ascend the river from Fort Crevecoeur (Chicago) and penetrated further north-west into the interior than any white man before him. He discovered St. Anthony’s Falls (at Minneapolis, Minnesota) and provided the first eye-witness account of Niagara Falls. He was subsequently captured by the Sioux and after several months’ wandering, was rescued by Daniel De Lhut. "[This] was the first book to use the name Louisiane, albeit that name had been given to this region previously by La Salle and was not Hennepin’s invention as claimed by him." (Howes) "The first account in print of La Salle’s journey to the Illinois country in 1678 and 1679, and the first description in print of the Falls of Niagara, as well as the first account in print of the Mississippi above its confluence with the Wisconsin River. Jean Delanglez in his Hennepin’s Description of Louisiana, a Critical Essay, 1941 has demonstrated now that Hennepin did not write the first two-thirds of the Description de la Louisiane but had plagiarized it from the first third of the Abbé Claude Bernous’s manuscript account of the same voyage instead of the other way around as long thought." (Streeter, citing the first edition of 1683) The Paris 1683 and 1688 editions of the Description are rarer and more valuable than Hennepin’s later accounts, and are rated ‘c’ and ‘b’ by Howes. As often, this copy is lacking the map, which is replaced by an excellent facsimile on watermarked laid paper. Dionne II 215. European Americana 688/121. Howes H-415. Gagnon II 977. Harrisse 160.

About this Item: Utrecht : [E. Voskuyl for] Antoine Schouten, 1698., 1698. 12mo., (5 6/8 x 3 2/8 inches). Title-page printed in red and black (remargined). One engraved folding map (of two, one or two short tears) and 4 engraved folding plates. Contemporary vellum over thin paste-board (new endpapers). First edition, a continuation of Hennepin's "Nouvelle decouverte d'un tres grand pays situé dans l'Amerique entre le Nouveau Mexique, et la Mer Glaciale. " of the previous year, comprises materials about La Salle taken from Chrétien Le Clercq's "Etablissement de la foy dans la Nouvelle France" (Paris, 1691) and the description of the Indians which had first appeared in Hennepin's own "Description de la Louisiane" (Paris, 1683). Hennepin made two voyages to the New World, the first was on the same boat as the explorer René-Robert Cavalier de La Salle, arriving in Quebec in 1675. The following year he traveled to Fort Frontenac (now Kingston ) on Lake Ontario and helped establish a mission there. In 1678 Hennepin was reassigned to Quebec and in November of that year accompanied La Salle on his exploration into the Great Lakes region. Hennepin accompanied Accault on an exploratory expedition of the Mississippi valley, and was taken prisoner by the Sioux. Rescued in 1681 by a small party of French explorers led by Daniel Greylsolon, sieur du Lhut, he returned to France and published an account of his adventures as "Description de la Louisiane" in 1683. Fleeing from France in disgrace in 1692 Hennepin sought the protection of King William III of England . He audaciously proposed colonization of the Mississippi Valley to the King, and through the assistance of the British secretary of war was permitted to travel to Amsterdam to publish works on North America and make preparations for potential British colonization of the American interior. "Unable to publish his proposed works in Amsterdam, Hennepin subsequently traveled to Utrecht and with British assistance published there two major works on early North America, "Nouvelle découverte d'un très grand pays, situé dans l'Amérique" (1697) and "Nouveau Voyage d'un païs plus grand que l'Europe". In these works Hennepin falsely claimed to have made a voyage of discovery along the lower Mississippi River before La Salle's famous descent of the river in 1682; in both books, the former missionary claimed that he urged the British monarchy to colonize the Mississippi Valley . Hennepin is noteworthy primarily because of his three book-length publications that were translated into numerous European languages in more than forty editions. The first established his reputation as a major figure in the European exploration of the North American interior; it also helped to focus the attention of the major European powers and the European scientific community on the importance of Mississippi Valley exploration and development. The latter two books, based as they were on fallacious information, largely destroyed Hennepin's reputation both as a writer and as an authority on North American exploration. The works nevertheless had a profound impact on North American colonization. Fearing that William III would follow Hennepin's advice, France organized a major colonization expedition to the mouth of the Mississippi River . In 1699, two years after publication of Hennepin's notorious Utrecht books, French forces established Fort Maurepas near present-day Biloxi, Mississippi, to safeguard France's interests in the lower Mississippi Valley" (ADNB).

About this Item: 0. HENNEPIN, Louis. A New Discovery of a Vast Country in America, extending above four thousand miles, between New France and New Mexico; with a description of the Great Lakes.with a continuation, giving an account of the attempts of the sieur de La Salle upon the mines of St. Barbe, &c. the taking of Quebec by the English. London: Printed for M. Bentley, J. Tonson, H. Bonwick, T. Goodwin, and S. Manship, 1698. Two volumes in one, 8vo (7 3/8 x 4 3/8 inches). [22],243,[32],228pp. Frontispiece, two engraved folding maps and six engraved folding plates. Modern panelled calf, spine in six compartments with raised bands, red morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt. The desirable Tonson issue of the first edition in English of this important American narrative, including the first eye-witness account of Niagara Falls. The second issue of the English translation, known as the "Tonson issue," with plates and typography improved, after the original French edition published in Utrecht in 1697. No other narratives of French exploration in the interior of North America enjoyed as wide a popularity or stimulated as much controversy and criticism among later scholars as those of Hennepin. A Recollet missionary, Father Hennepin went to New France in 1675, and in 1678 he set out with La Salle to explore the fertile basin of the Mississippi River. While La Salle turned back to raise funds to continue the voyage, Hennepin went on to ascend the river from Fort Crevecoeur (Chicago) and penetrated farther northwest into the interior than any white man to that time. He discovered St. Anthony's Falls near the present site of Minneapolis, and provided the first eyewitness account of Niagara Falls. The engraving of the Falls which appears in his narrative, although an imaginative rendering, was the earliest to be published. Hennepin was subsequently captured by the Sioux, and after several months of wandering, he was rescued by Daniel De Lhut. This edition contains translations of both Hennepin's second and third books, Nouvelle Decouverte. and Nouveau Voyage. The first presents a fairly reliable account of Hennepin's actual travels and experiences, but also incorporates his entirely false claim to have descended the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico. This is, in fact, Father. Seller Inventory # 65038

About this Item: Utrecht: Antoine Schouten, 1698., 1698. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 12mo. pp. 35 p.l., 389. 4 folding engraved plates & 1 folding engraved map. title in red & black. A very good copy, bound in old half sprinkled calf (a few short tears & repairs to plates - no loss). armorial bookplate of Colonel Cooper. First Edition. No doubt anxious to capitalize on the tremendous success of the Nouvelle Découverte, published the previous year, Hennepin issued this sequel, adding new material drawn from contemporary sources, on Indian manners and customs and various travels in North America. The first eight chapters describe the adventures and murder of La Salle, while the last relate of the English treatment of the Recollets after the taking of Quebec in 1629. Lengthy passages are lifted from Le Clercq's Établissement de la Foy. Despite the 'rascally' friar's liberal indulgence in plagiarism, for which he has been justly criticized, according to Thwaites, his works still stand as "invaluable contributions to the sources of American history; they deserve study, and to this day furnish rare entertainment. We can pardon much to our erratic friar, when he leaves to us such monuments as these." The four plates by Van Vianen include a fine romantic view of the taking of Quebec by the English in 1629 and a portrayal of the murder of La Salle. Dionne II 246. Gagnon I 1651. Harrisse 177.

About this Item: London: Printed for M.Bentley, J.Tonson, H.Bonwick, T.Goodwin, and S.Manship, 1698., 1698. 2 Parts in 1, with separate titles. 8vo. pp. 11 p.l., 243; 16 p.l., 228. engraved frontis., 2 large folding engraved maps & 6 folding engraved plates. A very nice tight copy in 19th century tree calf (some light browning & foxing). later custom morocco pull-off box (cracks in spine). First Edition of the English Translation, Second (‘Tonson’) Issue, with plates and typography improved. Perhaps no other narratives of French exploration in the interior of North America enjoyed as wide a popularity, or stimulated as much controversy and criticism among later scholars as Hennepin’s. A Recollet missionary, Father Hennepin came to New France in 1675, spending most of the next three years in parts of Quebec and at Fort Frontenac, present-day Kingston. In 1678, he set out with La Salle to explore the fertile basin of the Mississippi River. While La Salle turned back to raise funds to continue the voyage, Hennepin went on to ascend the river from Fort Crèvecoeur and penetrated further north-west into the interior than any white man before him. Hennepin discovered St. Anthony’s Falls, the site of present-day Minneapolis Minnesota. He also provided the first eye-witness account of Niagara Falls, and the engraving of the Falls which appears in his narrative was the earliest to be published. Hennepin was subsequently captured by the Sioux, and after several months of wandering, was rescued by Daniel Dulhut. This English edition contains translations of both Hennepin’s second and third books, the Nouvelle Découverte (Utrecht: 1697) and the Nouveau Voyage (Utrecht: 1698). The first presents a fairly reliable account of Hennepin’s actual travels and experiences, but also incorporates his infamous claim to have descended the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico. This is in fact Fathre Zénobe Membré’s true relation, which Hennepin plagiarized from Le Clercq’s Établissement de la Foy (1691). In is sequel, the Nouveau Voyage, Hennepin added new material drawn from contemporary sources, on Indian manners and customs, and accounts of the travels of Marquette and Joliet. Eight chapters describe the adventures and murder of La Salle, and another deals with the English treatment of the Recollets after the taking of Quebec in 1629. "Despite the fact that Hennepin has been severely and justly criticized for imposture and plagiarism, his works, according to Thwaites, still stand as "invaluable contributions to the sources of American history; they deserve study, and to this day furnish rare entertainment. We can pardon much to our erratic friar, when he leaves to us such monuments as these." In addition to the view of Niagara Falls, the plates include a fine romantic view of the taking of Quebec by the English in 1629, and a portrayal of the murder of La Salle.Bell H121. Church 773.

Nouvelle Decouverte D'un Tres Grand Pays Situé: HENNEPIN, Louis

About this Item: Utrecht Chez Guillaume Broedelet, Marchand Libraire, 1697. First Edition, and with the First View Ever Made of Niagara Falls HENNEPIN, Louis. Nouvelle Decouverte D'un Tres Grand Pays. Situé dans l'Amerique, entre La Nouveau Mexique, et La Mer Glaciale, Avecles Carrtes, & les Figures necessaires, & de plus l'Hisstoire Naturelle & Morale, & les avantages, qu'on en peut tirer par l'etablissement des Colonies. Le Tout Dedis á Sa Majesté Britannique. Guillaume III. Utrecht: Chez Guillaume Broedelet, Marchand Libraire, 1697. First edition of this account of Hennepin's travels in what is now the United States and Canada. Twelvemo (6 x 3 1/2 inches; 153 x 30 mm). [70], 506 pp. [with extra 10 * pages, all numbered 313]. With engraved title-page, two folding maps and two folding plates (the first ever view made of Niagara Falls, the other of one of the earliest pictures of an American bison). In this book, (his second) Hennepin includes the substance of his first, the Description de la Louisiane, printed in 1683, and continues with the account of a voyage he here claims to have made to the mouth of the Mississippi and back up again. "In the second book Hennepin adds, to his actual voyage up the Mississippi, a pretended one down that stream prior to La Salle" (Howes). That voyage was, in fact, undertaken Le Clerq, and while Hennepin has been much maligned through the ages for his plagiarism, this should not detract from his monumentally important contributions to the history of early American exploration. Contemporary full vellum. Spine lettered in ink in a contemporary hand. Tape repairs to inner margins of leaves ***5 and ***6. One leaf, leaf A with reinforced fore-edge, with no loss, and leaf A6 with small paper repair. A few notes in old ink on front endpapers.Vellum a bit bumped and soiled, but overall an exceptionally clean copy. Louis Hennepin (1640-1705), a Franciscan missionary, traveled with Rene Cavelier, Sieur de la Salle, into the interior of North America. No other narrative of French exploration into the interior of North America has enjoyed as wide a popularity or stimulated as much controversy as that of Hennepin. In 1678 he set out with La Salle to explore the basin of the Mississippi. When La Salle returned to France to raise more funds for the exploration, Hennepin continued on and ascended the river from Fort Crevecouer (Chicago) and, ultimately, voyaged farther northwest into the interior than any white man before that time. He discovered St. Anthony’s Falls near the present site of Minneapolis, and gave the first eyewitness account of Niagra Falls. The engraving of the Falls found in this book was the first ever published. "This work begins with Epistre Dedicatoire 23 pp., Avis an Lecteur, 26 pp giving details as to his trials and difficulties. Table de Chapitres, 19 pp. The text begins with some general remarks and biographical details and then follows the Description de la Louisiane expanding it, to p. 200 when it copies from Le Clercq's Etablissment de la Foi, p. 153. From p. 249 to 312 is an account of a pretended voyage down the Mississippi. The star pages and most of the remainder are from the Description de la Louisiane enlarged. From 313 to end is in different type from preceding portion, the chapter heads have arabic figures while in the earlier part they have Roman numerals, the head lines differ being Nouvell Découv before 313 and Nouvel Decouv after 313. The spacing is also different, all tending to show that it was set in another office and by other hands. The introduction of star pages shows that the succeeding portion was printed first. The type on last page is smaller than the body of the work. The work has been rewritten by some literary man not versed in Canadian affairs or Catholic terms The Moeurs des Sauvages is omitted Whether all from 249 to the last 313 was inserted after the work was printed in its original form is a question on which Hennepin's credit depends. The map continues the Mississippi to the gulf, calls the Missouri, R. Otenta puts the Ch. Seller Inventory # 66730

Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 12mo,14.3x 7.5cm. engraved half-title frontis, 2 large folding maps & 2folding plates, in full contemporary style calf by Sangorski and Sutcliffe, blind ruled raised bands, gilt titles and blind decorations in the panels, gilt-ruled inner dentelles, original blanks leaves preserved, a fine clean copy. (cgc) T.P.L. 83; Lande 423; Sabin 31349;Church 762; The First Edition of this account of Hennepin's travels in what is now the United States and Canada. His work forms one of the most important volumes in the early history of North America. Following upon the discovery of the Mississippi by Marquei and Joliet, La Salle set out in 1678 to open up this fertile basin. The chronicler of his expedition was Father Louis Hennepin, who explored the upper reaches of the Mississippi while La Salle was retracing his way to raise funds for renewing his voyage, after its disastrous experience on the Illinois River. Hennepin may have touched the site of the future city of Minneapolis. His work forms one of the most important volumes in the early history of North America. He lived for eleven years on this continent and penetrated farther into the then unknown interior than anyone before him. He was the discoverer and explorer of the upper reaches of the Mississippi and the first to describe Niagara Falls,exaggerating their height, however to above 600 feet. He tells of the building of the new Fort Creve coeur which was named by the Indians Checagou (Chicago), describes Fort Frontenac and the Great Lakes,recounts the travels and death of La Salle and the Capture of Quebec by the English in 1629, and gives many details regarding the manners and customs of the Indians. Hennepin has been maligned through the ages for his plagiarism, however this should not detract from his monumental contributions to the history of early North American exploration.

About this Item: Utrecht: Guillaume Broedelet, 1697., 1697. 12mo., (5 6/8 x 3 4/8 inches). Additional engraved title, 2 large folding maps and 2 folding plates, with the 5 inserted leaves between quires N & O (engraved title-page trimmed at fore-margin, second map with a few splits at folds, occasional unimportant discolouration). Modern brown morocco. THE FIRST DEPICTION OF NIAGARA FALLS First edition of the latter part of this important but much decried account of Hennepin's travels in what is now the United States and Canada, including his probably fictitious description of his voyage down, and up, the Mississippi. One of the two plates is the first depiction of the Niagara Falls. Hennepin made two voyages to the New World, the first was on the same boat as the explorer René-Robert Cavalier de La Salle, arriving in Quebec in 1675. The following year he traveled to Fort Frontenac (now Kingston) on Lake Ontario and helped establish a mission there. In 1678 Hennepin was reassigned to Quebec and in November of that year accompanied La Salle on his exploration into the Great Lakes region. Hennepin accompanied Accault on an exploratory expedition of the Mississippi valley, and was taken prisoner by the Sioux. Rescued in 1681 by a small party of French explorers led by Daniel Greylsolon, sieur du Lhut, he returned to France and published an account of his adventures as "Description de la Louisiane" in 1683. Fleeing from France in disgrace in 1692 Hennepin sought the protection of King William III of England. He audaciously proposed colonization of the Mississippi Valley to the King, and through the assistance of the British secretary of war was permitted to travel to Amsterdam to publish works on North America and make preparations for potential British colonization of the American interior. "Unable to publish his proposed works in Amsterdam, Hennepin subsequently traveled to Utrecht and with British assistance published there two major works on early North America, "Nouvelle découverte d'un très grand pays, situé dans l'Amérique" (1697) and "Nouveau Voyage d'un païs plus grand que l'Europe". In these works Hennepin falsely claimed to have made a voyage of discovery along the lower Mississippi River before La Salle's famous descent of the river in 1682; in both books, the former missionary claimed that he urged the British monarchy to colonize the Mississippi Valley. Hennepin is noteworthy primarily because of his three book-length publications that were translated into numerous European languages in more than forty editions. The first established his reputation as a major figure in the European exploration of the North American interior; it also helped to focus the attention of the major European powers and the European scientific community on the importance of Mississippi Valley exploration and development. The latter two books, based as they were on fallacious information, largely destroyed Hennepin's reputation both as a writer and as an authority on North American exploration. The works nevertheless had a profound impact on North American colonization. Fearing that William III would follow Hennepin's advice, France organized a major colonization expedition to the mouth of the Mississippi River. In 1699, two years after publication of Hennepin's notorious Utrecht books, French forces established Fort Maurepas near present-day Biloxi, Mississippi, to safeguard France's interests in the lower Mississippi Valley" (ADNB).

About this Item: 1683. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. The exceedingly rare first edition, complete with the important map, first to name Louisiana. 1683. Paris. Widow of Sebastian Hure. 12mo (6 x 3”). [12], 312, 107 pp. + folding map. Contemporary calf, raised bands to spine, tooled in gilt, red morocco lettering piece, boards with blind tooled fillet, nicely restored. A wide margined copy, not tempered with by 19th century French binders as it is sometimes the case; a fine copy of the important map, newly mounted on a stub, very clean and in a very strong impression. First edition. Hennepin (1626 – c.1701) was a Franciscan missionary and explorer; he received orders to travel to Canada in an expedition approved by the powerful Minister Colbert and commanded by the King of France, accompanying Rene Robert Cavelier, Sieur de la Salle, recently appointed to the governorship of Fort Frontenac, in Nouvelle France. In 1675 they set sail, the vessel carried also Francois de Laval de Montmorency, Bishop of Quebec, whose acquaintance proved useful in Canada. Upon making port in the French dominions of Canada, Hennepin began travelling without comfort throughout the region, providing us testimony of his explorer spirit, his luggage often being carried by dogs, at other times by canoe (Catholic Encyclopedia); these experiences gained him knowledge on the language and customs of the natives. In 1679, Hennepin joined the expedition led by La Salle through the Great Lakes; it is during this expedition that the Niagara Falls and the Saint Anthony Falls (Minneapolis) were discovered. In 1683, Hennepin’s account was published, giving us with the first report of Niagara Falls, the first description of Louisiana, the first account of the headwaters of the Mississippi above the Wisconsin and the first map to name Louisiana. “This is the earliest printed account of La Salle's 1678-79 expedition to Illinois (and the building of Fort Crevecoeur), written by the explorer's close companion, Father Hennepin. It is the first to relate Hennepin's travels up the Mississippi, his discovery of the Falls of St. Anthony, and his captivity among the Sioux. It is also the first to describe Niagara Falls and to use the name Louisiana. The Description is considered Hennepin's most accurate work. A Recollect missionary who spent 11 years in America, he was one of the great pioneers of exploration in the western Great Lakes and the upper Mississippi.” (Nebenzahl). The map, Carte de la Nouvelle France et de la Louisiane, is remarkably important, it’s influence cannot be overstated as it is the first map to name Louisiana. Engraved by Roussel and embellished with a cartouche by N. Guerard. A rare book in the market, especially when complete with the map. Until 1999 (the Siebert Sale, Sotheby’s New York, Oct 28, lot 660, u$s 48,875), no copy is registered at auction for over 25 years (AE). Nebenzahl offered a copy in 1979 for 5,500 u$s. Sabin, 31347.
