(32), 384,(1); (36),212,(16) pp. First published in Dutch in 1749. - Official account of Anson's (1697-1762) famous privateering expedition (1740-1744) of seven vessels against Spanish commerce in the Pacific, edited from Anson's papers by Richard Walter, chaplain of the expedition. 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. His exploits brought back new knowledge about the little-known regions around the southern tip of South America. The second volume contains the account of John Byron (1723-1786), midshipsman to the Wager, separated from Anson's fleet in fog off Patagonia, he rounded Cape Horn and ran aground in the Guayaneco Archipelago, to the south of the Golfo de Penas on the southern Chilean coast. 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.

BLIGH, William. A voyage to the South Sea, undertaken by command of his majesty for the purpose of conveying the bread-fruit tree to the West Indies, in his majesty's ship The Bounty, commanded by lieutenant William Bligh. Including an account of the mutiny on board the said ship, and the subsequent voyage of part of the crew, in the ship's boat, from Tofoa, and the Friendly Islands, to Timor, a Dutch settlement in the East Indies. London, George Nicol, 1792.4to. Contemporary polished calf, gilt fillets round sides, skilfully rebacked with the original spine laid down, spine richly gilt with green morocco titlelabel, in modern buckram slipcase. With engraved frontispiece portrait, 3 engraved plates (2 folding) and 4 charts (3 folding). (10),153,IV,88, 247-264 pp. First edition; with armorial bookplate of Wiliam Lloyd of Aston, dated 1806. - Our copy is one of the very few known copies of the composite issue of Bligh's complete official account of the Bounty voyage, specially printed to incorporate the original printing of the Narrative of the mutiny, on board his majesty's ship Bounty, London 1790. Bligh, a man of almost pathological integrity, had a special state of the Voyage prepared which excluded the Mutiny chapters, so that those who wished might bind their copies of the Mutiny in with the chapters that preceded and followed that portion of the work (The Davidson collection 111). - In 1787 Lieutenant Bligh took command of HMS Bounty, hoping to win a premium offered by the Royal Society for anyone who could obtain breadfruit trees, seen as a cheap, high-energy food source which could be given to British slaves. Having obtained the trees in Tahiti, Bligh set course for the Caribbean but the ship never reached its destination because of a mutiny mounted by Bligh's protégé Fletcher Christian on 28 April 1789, during which he and eighteen loyal crewmen were forced into a tiny launch. Despite a brief landing in Tofua, where one crewman was killed by hostile natives, the rest of the crew survived the seemingly impossible 3,618 nautical miles voyage to Timor, the nearest European settlement, after a 47-day voyage. They visited several more islands before being transported back to Britain. Several of the mutineers, who had settled on Pitcairn Island, were eventually captured and three were executed in England. - A fine copy of the extremely rare composite edition.Hill 132 & 135 'an extremely important book'; Wantrup 62b; Du Rietz 93 'not seen'; Ferguson 126; Howgego p. 125.

Also a journal of the adventure's voyage, in the year 1772, 1773, and 1774. With an account of the separation of the two ships, and the most remarkable incidents that befel each. Interspersed with historical and geographical descriptions of the islands and countries discovered in the course of their respective voyages. London, F. Newbery, 1775.Contemporary calf, skilfully rebacked, spine lettered in gilt. With large chart and additional chart of 'Part of the tropical discoveries of the Resolution sloop, Captain J. Cook in 1774' and 5 engraved plates. (14),328 pp. First edition. - Preceding Cook's official account by some 18 months, this was 'the first account of Cook's second voyage and the first account of exploration within the Antarctic circle' (Davidson 81). This eye-witness account was written by the Irish gunner's mate on the Resolution whom Cook had picked up in Batavia during his first voyage. It contains many events not recorded in the official account by Cook and gives the reasons which caused Sir Joseph Banks and his twelve assistants to withdraw from the expedition at the last moment. Marra made an unsuccessful attemp to desert at Tahiti on May 14, 1774, during this second voyage. With the very rare additional chart showing the track of the Resolution from Norfolk Island to the New Hebrides. This book is actually the first book published, based on first-hand knowledge, relating to the Antarctic regions and the fine plates are the first depictions of the region. - A fine copy with the extremely rare extra folding engraved map.Beaglehole II, p.CLIII-CLV; Beddie 1270; Hill 1087; Roscove 214; Spence 758; Kroepelien 809; O'Reilly-Reitman 379; Hocken p.14; Conrad p.13; Sabin 16247.
