Eene waare geschiedenis. Door hem zelven beschreeven. Gesterkt met een certificaat van dan heer Sevettenham, commandant van het Engelsch fort St. Marc des Apalaches. Amsterdam, Petrus Conradi, 1771.20th century cloth. 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). 'Probably the story of cannibalism accounted for the popularity of this narrative' (Huntress 80C).Not in Tiele or Cat. NHSM; Sabin 99414; Polak 9438. [Boeknr.: 33245 ]

(Amsterdam, Joannes Janssonius, 1646).Oblong 8vo. Modern wrappers. With 5 (of 8) engraved plates. 31 pp. (text set in two columns). Extracted from Commelin's collection of voyages. - In 1598 De Weert sailed with the fleet of Jacques Mahu during the first Dutch attempt to reach the East Indies by way of the Straits of Magellan. He was separated from the fleet in the Straits of Magellan and coincidentally encountered the fleet of Olivier van Noort which was sailing on a quite seperate expedition which was to result in the first Dutch circumnavigation. De Weert attempted to join Van Noort's fleet, but his crew were by that time too weak to keep up and De Weert made the decision to return to Holland. En route he sighted what were probably the Jason Islands, off the Falkland Islands, which were therafter known for some time after as the Sebaldes, or Sebald's Islands. De Weert eventually reached Holland in July 1600 with only thirty-six of his original 105 crew left alive. He had at least brought home the only ship of the fleet to survive the voyage (Howgego p.1097). - The only published account of this voyage was written by Barent Janszoon (Potgieter), the surgeon on De Weert's ship.

WEST, Benjamin. The death of General Wolfe. London, Woollett, Boydell & Ryland, 1776.Contemporary handcoloured engraving after Benjamin West by William Woollett. Ca. 47 x 59,5 cm. General James Wolfe (1727-1759) died during his famous victory over the French at Quebec, which delivered Canada into the hands of the British, known as The Battle of the Plains of Abraham, also known as the Battle of Quebec. The engraving depicts the general surrounded by his officers and a native American warrior, with ships in the background. The original heroic painting by Benjamin West (1738-1820) of 1771 was an instant success and the engraving by William Woollett which followed was one of the most commercial successful prints ever published (Von Erffa & Staley, The paintings of Benjamin West, p.213). In death, General Wolfe gained fame as a national hero and became an icon of the Seven Years' War and British dominance in late eighteenth century North America. William Woollett's engraving was the best-known copy of West's original and became popular around the world - Mounted on linnen, occasionally faint rubbing, otherwise fine. [Boeknr.: 32289 ]
