About this Item

v,3-117,[2]pp. Folding engraved map by H. Moll. (Minor soiling and foxing.). Modern speckled calf, spine gilt with leather label Illustrated with a folding map by Moll. "A reprint of the translation printed in 1698 of the Voyage of Sieur Accarrete to Buenos Aires, from Thevenot's Collection, without any acknowledgement of the source from whence it was taken" - JCB. The original was supposedly Relation des Voyages dans la Riviere de la Plata (Paris, 1632), although European Americana says this edition is "very possibly a ghost". The handsome folding map by Moll is "A New Map of Part of the Great River de la Plata, of Tucuman." The dedication in this edition by Darby is addressed to the directors of the South Sea Company. In it Darby points to a profitable future in the South American trade: "I don't doubt but by your wise Direction, under the Patronage of your August Governour, our Wealth and Commerce will be vastly increas'd: this Way being evidently the easiest and speediest to convey the Product and Manufactures of Europe to Chili and Peru, and also the safest to bring Gold and Silver from thence into this part of the World." European Americana 716/1; Sabin 42918; Palau 1690; JCB (1)III:215. Bookseller Inventory # 28658
