(4),1065,(23) pp. Third edition, first published in 1687. - Biography of one of the most famous admirals in Dutch history, Michiel Adriaenszn. de Ruyter (1607-1676), also of great interest for Dutch political and economic history. Dealing with the early voyages to Jan Mayen Island (whaling), Morocco (Barbary Coast), during this time his esteem grew among other Dutch captains as he would regularly free Christian slaves by redeeming them at his own expense, and the Baltic: he managed to liberate Nyborg in 1659, for this he was knighted by the Danish king Frederick III of Denmark. After he recaptured Guinea on the English in 1664 he crossed the Atlantic to raid the English colonies in America. Visited the Caribbean islands, delivered supplies to the Dutch colony of St. Eustatius, and was engaged in Spanish-Dutch sea-fights and conquests. Giving the damage he had sustained at a certain moment he decided against an assault on New York to retake New-Netherland. He fought the English in the first three Anglo-Dutch Wars. His most famous exploit was against the English fleet: the Raid on the Medway in 1667. He sailed up the Thames to Chatham and burned three ships and captured the English flagship HMS Royal Charles, which he took with him back to Holland. It was a costly and embarrassing defeat for the English. On 18 March 1678 De Ruyter was given a state funeral when his body was buried in the Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam. He was succeeded as supreme commander by Cornelis Tromp in 1679. De Ruyters' flagship De Zeven Provinciën is being rebuilt in the Dutch town Lelystad. Cat.

KEATE, George. An account of the Pelew Islands, situated in the western part of the Pacific Ocean, composed from the journals and communications of Captain Henry Wilson, and some of his officers, who, in august 1783, were there shipwrecked, in the Antelope, a packet belonging to the Honourable East India Company. Third edition. London, G. Nicol, 1789.4to. Contemporary tree calf, spine richly gilt with red morocco title-label. With folding engraved chart (with small tear) and 16 engraved portraits and plates (some foxing). XXVIII,378 pp. First edition published in London in 1788. - In 1783 the East India Packet Antelope under command of Henry Wilson, ran onto a reef near one of the Palau Islands, a previously unexplored group, and was wrecked. The crew reached shore and were well treated by the natives. From the wreck they built a small boat which they managed to get to Macao, taking with them Prince Lee Boo, the son of king Abba Thule. Lee Boo soon died of smallpox in England. Captain Wilson allowed Keate (1729-97) to write a faithful account of the events from Wilson's journals and communications. This account did much to reinforce the idea of the noble savage and it is one of the most popular 18th century books on the Pacific and also the main source of early knowledge of the Palau Islands, the most western group of the Caroline archipelago.

(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.

MOROCCO. NAUFRAGE DU BATEAU A VAPEUR LE PAPIN le samedi 6 Décembre 1845 à 11 heures du soir, le navire fit côte au Nord de Mazagan, sur un banc de sable, à 2 ou 3 encâblures de la terre; sa chiminee en tombant écrasa plusieurs hommes de l'équipage, le bâtiment fut coupé en deux à l'arrière des Chaudières et de 151 personnes qui montaient le bateu à vapeur, 76 seulement purent être sauvés, tout le reste s'englouit dans les flots en fureur et dans la nuit du 6 au 7 Décembre. - Le dessin représente la situation du Papin le 6 Décembre à 5 heures du matin. London, Gambart Junin & Cie, Paris, François Delarue, (1845).Tinted lithographed view after A. Mayer by A. Mayer et Sabatier. Ca. 38 x 51 cm. A fascinating depiction of the loss of a French man-of-war steamer Le Papin, and half her crew on 6 December 1845 off Mazagan, now El Jadida, in Morocco. Le Papin was one of the vessels destined to form the French squadron on the coast of Africa for the suppression of the slave trade, and was on her way to Senegal, intending to call at Mogador. 'I have this moment heard from the office of the British consul of the total wreck on the coast, between Azmoor and Mazagan, of another French man of war steamer, of 650 tons burden, and 140 horse power. The details are very shocking, and the number of lives lost are 77, including the captain and all the officers. with the exception of one midshipman. The newly appointed French consul to Mogador is numbered among the victims. Exactly one half of those on board the unfortunate vessel were drowned, the other half were saved under circumstances which reflect the highest credit on the British and French consul at Mazagan. Mr. Redman, for it was to his prompt arrival at the spot, and his energetic persuasion of the Moors to assist him, that the survivors owe their lives' (Shipping Gazette). [Boeknr.: 33254 ]

Woodcut vignette on titel-page. 132 pp. Dutch translation of: Naufrage et aventures de Pierre Viaud, natif de Bordeaux, capitaine de navire, histoire véritable. Bordeaux 1768. - This book tells the extraordinary story of a French seaman who sailed from Bordeaux in February 1765 as mate in the Aimable Suzette, Captain St. Crie, bound for the West Indies. Forced by illness to remain on the small island of St. Louis, off the coast of Saint-Domingue (Haiti), Viaud enters into a partnership with a Haitian resident, monsieur Desclau, to trade goods to Louisiana. They hire a vessel, the Tigre, Captain La Couture, and sail with sixteen passengers and crew on 2 January 1766. During the voyage the ship springs a leak, and on 16 February 1766 runs aground and breaks up on an island off the coast of Florida. Viaud's account of his adventures somehow fell into the hands of the French scholar Jean Gaspard Dubois-Fontanelle who published it at Bordeaux in 1768. Exacly how much is the work of Fontanelle himself is uncertain, but it was an instant bestseller and became one of the most reprinted and translated works of the 18th century. After many years of debate and indecision, the basic framework (at least) of Viaud's account is now regarded as truthful (Howgego V, p.474-474).
