FANNING, Edmund (1769-1841)

New York, 1833. Octavo. 499pp. 5 plates (2 folding). Original green cloth-backed brown/grey paper covered-boards, printed paper label to spine (label chipped, neat repairs to spine), green cloth chemise, green cloth slipcase, brown morocco lettering-piece Provenance: E.A. Bradford (early pencilled signature to front pastedown); Sarah F. Bradford (inscription) First edition of a classic narrative of voyages to the Pacific. Fanning's adventurous life at sea began at a young age. A native of Connecticut, he set sail in 1792 for the South Seas in search of seal skins. During the following quarter century he made voyages around the world and to the Pacific, visiting Australia, south Georgia, Fiji, Tonga, and the Marquesas. Included in his work is a narrative of the first American naval exploring expedition to the southern hemisphere in 1829-30 by Benjamin Pendleton. "Fanning, who went to sea as a 14-year-old cabin boy in 1783, first sailed to the South Seas on a voyage for seal skins on the Betsey in May 1797. During the next 25 years he either captained or directed over 70 voyages to the Pacific and around the globe, personally visiting China, Australia, Fiji, and the Marquesas. In 1798 he discovered both Fanning and Palmyra Islands...the latter is officially a part of the city and county of Honolulu and is privately owned by a Honolulu family. In 1829 Fanning was instrumental in sending out an exploring expedition under the command of Captain Benjamin Pendleton and Nataniel Brown Palmer... It was Fanning's petition to Congress and largely his own personal efforts that led to the ... fitting out of the United States Exploring Expedition [i.e Wilkes Expedition]" (Forbes). The Bishop Museum in Honolulu holds Princess Kaiulani's copy of Fanning's Voyages. American Imprints 18752; Ferguson 1643; Hill (2004) 581; Howes F27, "aa."; Sabin 23780; Forbes 839.

New York: Collins & Hannay,, 1833. Octavo. Original blue cloth-backed brown boards, titles to printed paper label to spine. Housed in a custom green cloth slipcase. Lithograph frontispiece and 3 further lithographic plates, 2 of which are folding. Extensive, although partially erased, contemporary notes to endpapers consisting of: packing list, score tabulation, letter formation practice, and two separate lists of women's names. Front free endpaper renewed. Spine faded, wear and scuffs to soiled boards, foxing to contents, nevertheless a very good copy indeed of this fragile publication. First edition of this collection of narrative voyages. Fanning (1769-1841) was predominantly a fur trader, exchanging seal skins in China for goods which he sold on in New York. As master of the Betsey from 1797 to 1798 he discovered three South Pacific Island: Fanning, Washington, and Palmyra, which are collectively known as the Fanning Islands. "During the next 25 years he either captained or directed over 70 voyages in the Pacific and around the globe, personally visiting China, Australia, Fiji, and the Marquesas" (Forbes). In 1829 he was instrumental in sending out the first American naval exploring expedition, and was greatly responsible for the authorisation of the Wilkes Expedition of 1838 to 1842.
