VI,562; VIII,476 pp. First published in Boston in 1863. - Wendell Phillips had sufficient income to abandon his law practice and devote his life to fighting for social justice.

ROBERTSON, William. Geschiedenis van America. Uit het Engelsch vertaald. Amsterdam, Yntema en Tieboel, 1778.4 volumes. Contemporary half roan (rubbed). With folding engraved plate and 3 (of 4) folding engraved maps. First Dutch edition, first published in London in 1777: The history of America. - 'A popular work which was reprinted several times and translated into many languages. .. Its vivid descriptions and philosophical disquisitions on aboriginal society captivated the literary world, while the outbreak of the American War lent the book pertinent public interest..' (Cox II, p.150). William Robertson (1721-1793) was a highly respected Scottish historian, clergyman and writer. His History of America is often regarded as his most interesting work but it also shows the Eurocentric limits of his stadial thinking, because it presents an unsympathetic account of Native Americans and glosses over Spanish atrocities. Robertson wrote the first history of the discovery and Spanish conquest of America to be based on ample bibliographical information and documents in the Simancas archives. The bibliography (a catalogue of Spanish books and manuscripts) at the end of the last volume, pp. 303-322, is remarkable for the time (Borba de Moraes II, p.740 ). - A fifth volume was published in 1801 containing a translation of Books IX and X (the history of Virginia and New England).Cat.

The German physician Ernst Carl Rodschied who practised in Essequibo in the 1790s, found that classical European medicine could not be used in the treatmen of African slaves without making modifications. Rodschied, who apparently had only had limited contact with Africans, thought that slaves had few passions, did not mind being slaves and were really only interested in keeping themselves alive and (if male) in sexual contact with women. According to Rodschied, Africans had brought 'strange' diseases from Africa and their constitution was quite different from that of the Europeans owing to their distinct customs and habits (Snelders, Leprosy and Colonialism: Suriname Under Dutch Rule, 1750-1950). - (Age-browned).Suriname-Catalogus U.B.

Leyden, Nicolaes van Geelkercken, 1619.Oblong 8vo. Modern vellum. With fine engraving on title-page and 25 engraved maps and plates. 192 pp. First edition. - Joris van Spilbergen (Antwerp 1568 - Bergen op Zoom 1620) was appointed in 1614 to head an expedition to the East Indies for the East India Company (VOC) by way of the Strait of Magellan to reassert Dutch claims to access into the Pacific from the east. The first attack on the Spanish was made on Santa Maria in Chili. He went on north to Valparaiso, Acapulco, further along the Mexican coast. In 1616 he reached Guam and Manila and thence to Ternate and Java. Joris van Spilbergen was the second Dutchman to circumnavigate the world. He discovered land along what is now the coast of California. 'Spilbergen had succeeded in establishing the power and reputation of the Dutch East India Company. In Java he took on board the crew of Le Maire and Schouten whose vessels had been confiscated. Le Maire and Schouten had discovered several small islands, Staten Landt, and the Straits of Le Maire, and had been the first to round Cape Horn' (Hill 1619). 'Spilbergen's voyage was the most succesful Dutch circumnavigation to date. The fleet had kept together, there had been little loss of Dutch life, and the expedition had metted a considerable profit for its sponsors' (Howgego S159). A short survey of another of the most important early voyages around the world, by Schouten and Le Maire in the years 1615 to 1617, is added at the end (Australische navigatien). It reports Le Maire's proof that Tierra del Fuego is an island and his discovery of what is still called the Strait of Le Maire, an alternative route to the Pacific. 'The Mirror is an extremely important book for the history of Dutch navigation' ( Borba de Moraes p.827). Including a folding world map, a folding map of South East Asia, a double-page map of the Pacific and South America, and views of islands and ports (4 double-page).- A very fine copy of the two famous Dutch circumnavigations.Tiele 1025; Tiele, Memoire, 65; Cat.
