(8),323 pp. Second and best edition, first published in 1817; with the bookplate of Bob Luza. - ' The Alceste and the Lyra conveyed Lord Amherst's embassy to China, which was the second attempt by the British to open trade with China, after the first effort by Lord Macartney. The Alceste reached Rio de Janeiro in 1816, and then proceeded to the Cape of Good Hope. After a short visit there, Batavia was touched at in order to deliver dispatches for the evacuation of the country and reinstatement of Dutch control, after which the Alceste continued on to China. While the matters of the embassy were proceeding, the ships sailed on an expedition for the survey and exploration of the west coast of Korea and the Ryukyu Islands. In the course of this work a long visit was made to Okinawa. The people were very hospitable to the sailors and gave them a kindly, though careful, reception. On the return voyage, after taking Lord Amherst on board at Macao, Manilla was visited, and then, in Gaspar Strait off the coast of Sumatra, the Alceste struck a submerged reef and became a total loss. The crew and passengers reached the small adjacent island of Pulo Leat safely. Lord Amherst proceeded to Batavia to fetch help while the sailors fortified their island retreat, named Fort Maxwell after their captain. A long and vivid account is given of their experiences, of how they were attacked by Malay pirates, and of their final rescue. On their return voyage, St. Helena was visited, and an interesting account is given of an interview with Napoleon. Dr. M'Leod, the author of this account, was ship's surgeon on board the Alceste' (Hill p.407). - (Some foxing).Hill 1169; Abbey, Travel, 559; Borba de Moraes II, p.507; Lust 378; Cordier, B.S., col. 2108; Huntress 188C; Thomson, The Exotic and the Beautiful, 298; Löwendahl 792.

Shelvocke gave his superior officer the ship in a stom and proceeded to Brazil and thence to the west coast of South America, where in two months he sacked Payta, Peru and captured several small prices. His vessel, the Speedwell, was wrecked at Juan Fernàndez Island, but a ship was built out of the wreckage, and he sailed up the coast to Baja California. After crossing the Pacific via Guam and Macao. Shelvocke returned to England, where he was accused of piracy and embezzlement, and then acquitted. He soon left for the Continent a wealthy man. Shelvocke wrote this account, in part, as a vindication of his conduct' (Hill p.554). 'From the Brazilian aspect, Shelvocke's voyage is of interest because he landed at Santa Catharina, and describes it at length in a special chapter' (Borba de Moraes p.796). 'In the map of the world California is shown as an island. Two of the plates represent male and female inhabitants of California. Shelvocke has the fullest accounts of California, the natives and other features, of any of the old voyagers' (Cowan p.212). Selvocke's controversial narrative is probably best known as the inspiration behind the albatross incident in Coleridge's Rime of the ancient mariner (Howgego p.958). - (Title-page trimmed with loss of part of final line). - A clean copy of this privateering expedition against Spanish shipping on the Pacific Coast of America.
