About This Item

(London: Adam and Charles Black, 1937). 8vo; original brown buckram, lettered in gilt on spine; pp. xxxvii + (iii) + 376, incl. index; several plates and maps, incl. folding. Spine very slightly sunned; edges and outermost leaves foxed; sporadic, moderate foxing. Good to very good condition. 'Dampier's New Voyage on its publication won immediate success, and has ever since maintained its place in the front rank among the most notable records of maritime adventure. ... In his Preface Dampier describes his book as "composed of a mixt relation of places and actions," a modest and inadequate indication which would hardly be approved by the advertising experts of the present day. The relation of places was, in fact, an extensive contribution to the geographical and ethnographical knowledge of his time. Nor does the description take count of the frequent excursions in the realm of natural history which diversify the main story with detailed accounts of tropical animals and plants, not highly scientific indeed, but accurate for the most part and novel to his readers.' .
