Although Anson lost most of his crew (an estimated 1000 lost to scurvy, 300 to typhus and dysentery, four in action and the remainder to shipwreck), and all but one of his ships, he did return with a vast bounty. Anson's voyage appears to have been the most popular book of maritime adventure of the 18th century.

The fate of the survivors, who then divided into two return parties, is one of the most gripping yarns of maritime history. - Two small library stamps on title-page otherwise a good copy.Tiele 42-43; Cat.

With engraved title-vignette, 3 engraved vignettes and 6 engraved plates (3 folding). (12),282,(17) pp. First Dutch edition; first published in French in Leiden in 1687: Relation de l'inquisition de Goa. - In 1668 Dellon sailed to India with the Compagnie des Indes. He travelled extensively along the Malabar coast. In 1673 he left the employment of the company and started a private medical practice in Damao, at that time a Portuguese colony. Six months later, early in 1674, he was arrested by the Inquisition and taken to Goa, where he was imprisoned for two years. He was then shipped to Lisbon, but released in the following year on condition that he should return immediately to France. .. It proved a considerable success, particularly in Protestant Europe, where it ran to numerous editions. Although long regarded purely as a work of propaganda, recent research has testified to its accuracy (Howgego p.304/305). ' Dellon's description of the Inquisition and of the practices of its officials and their collaborators is the only source available on the functioning of that institution by a comtemporary who saw it from the inside' (Lach, Asia in the making of Europe III,2, p.851). It includes also details of his stay in Bahia, Brazil. His account of the Inquisition was still forbidden in Portugal in 1769. - A nice copy.Cf. Borba de Moraes I, p.253-255; Sabin 19444-19447.
