DELLON, Gabriel. Historie der inquisitie tot Goa. En in andere gewesten van Indien. Uyt het Frans vertaalt. Amsterdam, Pieter Mortier, 1697.Sm.8vo. Contemporary vellum. 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.

(14),335,(9) pp. First English edition; first published in French Relation du voyage de la mer du Sud, Paris 1716.

During his return from Lima, Frézier took the trouble to correct the contemporary charts of the southernmost tip of South America, discovering a new channel in Tierra del Fuego and suppressing many of the imaginary lands previously shown on the maps. His survey also included the Falkland Islands which for the first time were identified as being the same as 'Sebald's Islands'. The return voyage called at Bahia, the Azores and Gibraltar' (Howgego p.399). The observant Frézier brought back information of considerable geographical and scientific value. Much data is included about the native inhabitants, and the work also contains an interesting account of guano. Frézier introduced the ancestor of the modern strawberry to France from Chile (Hill p.231). The relation of M. Frezier has always been highly esteemed from his character as an author of great truthfulness, as well as for the numerous exact maps with which it is illustrated (Field). - Age-browned otherwise fine.Borba de Moraes I, p.329; Sabin 25927 'a production of unrivaled interest and beauty'; Hill 654; European-Americana V, p.216.

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).

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.
