With engraved portrait, frontispiece, folding general map and 30 finely engraved plates and maps (mostly folding). XXIII,411,(1) pp. First published in London in 1779. - Thomas Forrest (1729 - ca.1802) was engaged in 1770 in forming the new settlement at Balambangan, an island at the northern tip of Borneo. His expedition in charge of the English East-India Company (1774-1776) to the Moluccas and New Guinea, in pursuance of new sources of trade, was made in the Tartar, a native boat of about ten tons burden, with two English officers and a crew of eighteen Malays. He pushed the exploration as far as Geelvink Bay in New Guinea (further east than any of his company predecessors). The voyage was one of examination and enquiry rather than of exploration, and the additions made to geographical knowledge were corrections of detail rather than startling discoveries, but the tact with which he conducted his intercourse with the natives, and the amount of work done in a small boat, deservedly won him credit as a navigator (Hill p.219). The introduction contains a survey of the voyages made to New Guinea since 1511 and at the end is added a vocabulary of the Magindano language. - 'Erstem genauen Beochter von Neu-Guinea' (Henze II, p.261). - Some foxing and age-browning otherwise a good copy of an important and early work on New Guinea.Hill 623 ; Cox II, p.302; Ruinen C 66; Howgego F60.
