Nouveaux voyages aux Indes Occidentales; contenant une: BOSSU, Jean Bernard.

About this Item: Paris, Chez Le Jay, 1768., 1768. 2 parts in 1 volume. 12°, contemporary mottled calf (some wear), rebacked in olive-green morocco, spine with gilt bands in six compartments, citron lettering piece in second compartment from head, gilt. Crisp and clean. In very good condition. Bookplate of James Franck Bright. xx [a7 a cancel], 224 pp.; (2 ll.), 264 pp.; with 4 engravings. *** FIRST EDITION, of primary interest for Louisiana, Alabama, Illinois, and West Florida. Jean Bernard Bossu (1720-1792), a captain in the French navy, was the first to write about eighteenth-century Louisiana in detail and based on personal experience. He provided the French public with the earliest trustworthy description of the people and conditions in the colony. The work is actually a collection of 21 letters he wrote during his first two voyages to the country, in 1751-57 and 1757-62. Bossu traveled as far north as Fort de Chartres, just south of Saint Louis. He spent time with the Natchez, Arkansas, Koakias (Cherokees?), Alabama, Choctaw, Illinois and Atakapa tribes, providing substantial information on their habits in religion, warfare, social customs (e.g., punishment for adultery), hunting, and more. He also comments on Santo Domingo, mining, syphilis, Havana, New Orleans, Hernando de Soto, El Dorado, the Sieur de La Salle, Granada, Jamaica, Lake Ponchartrain, Mobile, and the Fountain of Youth. Occasionally he ranges even further afield, describing the skeletons of elephants (i.e., mastodons) found in the Ohio Valley in 1735 (p. 206). At second hand, he reports on events in Canada such as the capture by Montcalm of Fort Oswego, Fort Ontario and New Fort Oswego in 1756. In Book II, Lettre XXI, Bossu speculates that the Indians reached America via a land bridge from Tartary, referring to the works of Diodorus Siculus, Peter Martyr, Lafitau, Lescarbot, and Bering. In the course of his travels Bossu was shipwrecked, had a close escape from a crocodile, and ran afoul of English corsairs several times.The four engravings by Gabriel de Saint Aubin all show Indians; among them are a gruesome decapitation and an Indian who stands on an overturned chest full of coins.The first edition of this work is distinguished from the second edition, with the same imprint and date, by its lack of the words "second edition" on the title. Howes notes, "For comments too critical of the ministry, Bossu was imprisoned and his book banned for awhile in France; this probably accounts for the scarcity of the first edition, of which Sabin found no record." The Nouveaux voyages was soon translated to English, Dutch, German, and Russian.*** Howgego I, 138 (B138). Sabin 6465. JCB (iii) I, 1611. Howes B626. Streeter 15187. Clark, Old South II, 5.

About this Item: A Paris, chez Le Jay, Libraire, Quay des Gêvres, au Grand Corneille. M. DCC. LXVIII. 1768. 1768, 1768. 2 tomes en 1 vol. in-12° (169 x 107 mm.) de I. xx, 244 pp.; II. [2] ff., 264 pp. 2 frontispices gravés, 2 planches gravées. Demi-basane marbrée, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges (joli pastiche). (Quelques taches d'usage, sinon très frais). Seconde édition de cette relation d’une grande importance pour la Louisiane, l’Alabama et l’Illinois. Malgré la mention de seconde édition qui apparaît sur la page de titre, d’après Sabin, il n’y a pas d’exemplaire répertorié d’une première édition, et la présente peut donc être considérée comme l’édition originale. Capitaine de la Marine française, Bossu qui passa douze ans dans « les terres de cette vaste région », fait partie des voyageurs qui firent le mieux connaître la Louisiane et les peuples qui l'habitaient, et le premier qui en donna une description reposant sur ses propres observations et avec tel soin de la justesse et du détail. Les deux tomes de l’ouvrage correspondent aux deux voyages qu’il fit en Louisiane de 1751 à 1757 puis de 1757 à 1762, et rassemblent 21 lettres dans lesquelles l’auteur narre les différentes étapes de son périple, mais touche aussi à des sujets plus généraux. Il arriva à la Nouvelle Orléans peu de temps après sa fondation, et seulement huit ans après La Salle. Les lettres, rédigées dans un style clair et précis, adressées « tout simplement à un Officier de distinction avec lequel il était en correspondance », comportent de savoureuses anecdotes de première ou de seconde main, et dressent un tableau étonnant de la vie et des voyages des Français dans la région. S’étant familiarisé avec les langues des populations locales, l’auteur est à même de connaître les mœurs et les habitudes des Illinois, des Akansas, des Allimabous, et autres peuples autochtones qui habitent les bords du Mississipi et des fleuves qui s'y jettent. L’exemplaire est bien complet des quatre figures gravées d’après les dessins de Saint-Aubin, dans lesquelles on perçoit une vision toute rousseauiste de ces peuples, ce qui est confirmé par le texte d’explication « De l’Estampe du Frontispice » : « Un Roi Sauvage appuyé sur son arc, foulant sous ses pieds l’or qui sort d’un coffre renversé, montre le mépris qu’il en fait ; il se nommait le Soleil, & en portait l’image empreinte sur la peau de sa poitrine. Les petites figures vues dans le lointain, dont une femme allaitant son enfant à l’ombre d’un arbre, les autres prenant leur repas, assisses sur la terre, près d’une cabane couverte de roseaux, désignent la simple nature de nos premiers pères, & l’heureuse innocence où vivaient ces peuples, avant que les Français arrivassent chez eux, car ils n’avaient point été corrompus par le faste & l’avarice, quoiqu’ils eussent leurs vices particuliers. » Agréable exemplaire. 2 parts in 1 vol. 12mo, 4 plates including engraved frontispieces in each volume. Half marbled sheep. Second edition of primary interest for Louisiana, Alabama, and Illinois. Bossu, a captain in the French Navy, was the first to write about Louisiana in detail and based on personal experience. The work is actually a collection of 21 letters he wrote during his first two voyages to the country, in 1751-57 and 1757-62. Sabin 6465: "I find no record of the first edition". Bossu arrived in New Orleans a few years after its founding, and only eighty years after La Salle came down the Mississippi. This collection of letters, revealing many vivid personal and secondhand recollections, gives a fascinating portrait of life and travels in that vast area. Fine copy. Sabin 6465, Streeter III:1518; Graff 361; Field 156; Monaghan 261; Howes B617; Cox II, p. 142; JCB 1611. Seller Inventory # 3962

About this Item: Paris: Le Jay, 1768., 1768. Hardcover. 2 Volumes bound in 1. 12mo. pp. xx, 244; 1 p.l., 264. with half-title in Vol. I. 4 engraved plates by Ch.Beurlier after Gabriel St. Aubin (incl. 2 frontis.). woodcut ornaments. contemporary mottled calf, gilt back (spinal extremities chipped, minor stains to outer margin of frontis. & first leaves in Vol. I). First Edition. "Bossu's writings constitute an important chapter in early Louisiana social history." (Clark) A French army officer, he was stationed in the West Indies and Louisiana from 1751 to 1762, and travelled extensively throughout the vast Louisiana territory, as far north as Fort Chartres in what is now Illinois, and as far east as the French post at Mobile. His intimate epistolary account of his travels and experiences incorporates vivid and detailed descriptions of the manners and customs, commerce and government, of the various Indian tribes of the region, the Natches, Arkanzas, Foxes, Missouris, Osages, Illinois, Sioux and Chocktaws, as well as news of events in Canada, including Montcalm's capture of Fort Oswego (Chouaguen), Fort Ontario and New Fort Oswego, on Lake Ontario in 1756. The twenty-first letter contains an interesting discussion of the possible origins of the aboriginal population of North America, based on the writings of earlier historians and explorers, Diodorus Siculus, Peter Martyr, Lafitau, Lescarbot, and Bering.

About this Item: Paris: Sébastien Cramoisy & Gabriel Cramoisy, 1648., 1648. Hardcover. 8vo. pp. 4 p.l., 276. without the final two blanks. a4 misbound after title. woodcut printer's device on title. woodcut ornaments & initials. 19th century vellum (first four leaves cropped affecting ornaments & last line on title-page, paper repair on title-page above Cramoisy's ornament just touching line above, some marginal worming in second half with no affect on text, paper lightly browned). preserved in cloth clam-shell box. from the library of E.B.Washburne [1816-87]. First Edition, Second Issue of the Sixteenth Jesuit Relation, with lines 8 and 9 of title-page reading 'Sur Le Grand Fleuve / De S.Laurens En L'Année 1647' rather than 'Sur Le Grand Fleuve De / De S.Laurens En L'Année 1647'. This copy agrees with that described as McCoy's Variant 4 except that the last line on p. 166 ends 'mon cher amy. Le'. "This is one of the rarer Relations. It consists of one part only and was sent by Jérôme Lalemant to the Provincial, Estienne Charlet. It reports some progress in the missionary labors of the Jesuit Fathers. A mission was established among the Abenakis, the work among the 'Atticameques' and the settlement of the Isle de Miskou are described. Perhaps the chief general interest is in the description of the hostile activities of the Iroquois and the experiences of Father Isaac Jogues in Chaps. IV-VIII, ending, as the heading of Chap. VIII states, "Father Isaac Jogues returns for the third time to the country of the Iroquois, where he is put to death."" (Bell) Father Lalemant came to Quebec in 1638, and succeeded Brébeuf as superior to the Huron Missions (1639-1644), where he built Sainte-Marie-aux-Hurons. From 1645 to 1650, and again from 1659 to 1665, he was superior to the Jesuits in Canada at Quebec. Lalemant wrote the Huron Mission relations for 1639-44 and those of New France for 1646-9 and 1660-4. According to a note on the front free-endpaper, this copy was given to Elihu Benjamin Washburne, Ambassador from the United States to France, by the Archbishop of Paris together with ten other relations, in recognition of Washburne's help to the French people at the time of the Franco-Prussian War. They were subsequently bought and sold by Wright Howes. Alden 648/89. Bell 33; L45. Church 487. Dionne II 128. Goldsmith, BM STC French, J208. Harrisse 87. JCB II 372. Lande S1201. McCoy 66.

About this Item: Amsterdam: Jean Frédéric Bernard, 1720., 1720. Hardcover. Dust Jacket Included. 12mo. pp. 1 p.l., 408. lacking half-title. folding engraved map & 14 engraved plates (incl. frontis.). title in red & black. woodcut title vignette. contemporary sprinkled calf, gilt back (short split in upper front joint). A collection of four relations, three very important ones describing Louisiana and the explorations of La Salle, which Streeter conjectures was brought out to boom the Mississippi Company. Included are Relation de la Louisianne ou Mississipi, Écrite à une Dame, par un Officier de Marine (pp. 1-34); Relation de la Louisianne, et du Mississippi par Le Chevalier de Tonti Gouvernour du Fort Saint Louis, aux Ilinois (pp. 35-198); Voyage En Un Pays Plus Grand Que L'Europe.par Le R. P. Hennepin (pp. 191-381); Relation Des Voyages De Gosnol, Pringe Et Gilbert. à la Virginie en 1602. & 1603 (pp. 382-408). The large folding map, Carte de la Louisiane et du Cours du Mississippi, is re-engraved on a smaller scale after the famous De L'Isle map of the same title of 1718 (Sabin notes a map of Virginia). Bell B190. European Americana 720/18 [vide BERNARD]. Howes T294 (vide TONTY; lacking 1 plate). JCB I 280 (lacking the plates?). Sabin 69299. Streeter I 117 (lacking the plates). See Gagnon I 2950 & TPL 177 for Bernard's Recueil. [BOUND WITH:] RECUEIL D'Arrests & Autres pièces pour l'Établissement De La Compagnie D'Occident. Relation de la Baie de Hudson. Les Navigations De Frobisher, au Détroit qu porte son nom. 12mo. pp. 2 p.l., 253, 100. with half-title. folding engraved map & 3 engraved plates. title in red & black. woodcut title vignette. (parts misbound). Amsterdam: Jean Frédéric Bernard, 1720. The Recueil d'Arrests (pp. 253) is apparently the first collected edition of official documents and letters patent (1717-19) relating to the famous 'Compagnie de l'Occident ou de la Louisiane', later the 'Compagnie des Indes', under the proprietorship of Scottish monetary theorist and financier, John Law [1671-1729]. The Company was granted exclusive privilege to colonize and develop the vast French territories of the Mississippi Valley in North America, which potential resources were used to increase the issue and circulation of paper money by the Banque Générale of France, also controlled by Law. The Mississippi venture attracted growing public enthusiasm and speculation and finally resulted in the first great bankruptcy in American history, the Mississippi Bubble. Also included here (pp. 39 of Part II) is the first edition (see Vlach and DCB) of the Relation de la Baie de Hudson by Nicolas Jérémie [1669-1732], a valuable, and one of the only, first-hand accounts of French fur-trading activity in the Hudson's Bay region, covering the period 1694-1714. Jérémie, a fur trader in the service of the Compagnie du Nord, was stationed at the French posts in the region for most of that period. In 1694, he was attached to the sieur d'Iberville's expedition against the English posts there, and for six years, from 1709, Jérémie was governor at Fort Bourbon (York Factory); in 1714, he surrendered to the British in accord with the terms of the Treaty of Utrecht. Accurate and informative observations and descriptions are also provided of Indian and Esquimaux manners and customs, topography, ice conditions, flora and fauna (walrus, beaver, caribou). The description of the musk-ox and the mention of the existence of copper in the north-west appear to be the earliest accounts given. Jérémie's Relation was probably written at the request of the King or one of his counsellors or ministers and ends with a report on the future prospects of the Hudson's Bay Territory and the regions further west. The last section (pp. 40-100) contains a French translation of the accounts of Martin Frobisher's three v. Seller Inventory # CLARELAT28
