Acosta, Jose de. Grimeston, Edward, trans. Markham, Clements R., ed.  
The Natural and Moral History of the Indies, by Father Joseph de Acosta. Reprinted from the English Translated Edition of Edward Grimston, 1604 [with] Map of Peru [Three Volumes].

Publisher: London: Printed for the Hakluyt Society, 1880 (1879)..
xlv, 295 pp.; xiii, 296-551 pp. 8vo. Original blue cloth stamped in blind, gilt vignette of ship on front boards, spines ruled in blind, gilt titles, yellow endpapers. First edition. Hakluyt Society, First series: Nos. 60, 61a and 61b. Spain & Spanish America I: 6. See Church 328n. Concerned chiefly with Mexico and Peru. The Map of Peru is bound separately with the half title: "Map of Peru to illustrate the Travels of Cues de Leon, in 1532-50; The royal commentaries of Garcilasso de la Vega (1690); and the Natural and moral history of the Indies, by Father Joseph de Acosta (1608)" which are nos. 33, 41, 45, 60, and 61 of the society's publications. "Father Acosta, a native of Medina del Campo, entered the Society of Jesus at the age of fourteen, and in 1571 when thirty-one years old, became the deputy provincial of Peru. He died at Salamanca in 1600, having passed the greater part of the intervening years in America. His work has been justly esteemed for its intrinsic merit, indubitable evidence of which is found in the fact that it has been translated into almost every language of Europe having a literature. Books V., VI., and VII. pp. 327 to 590, are entirely devoted to a relation of the history, customs and warres of the Indians. This portion of the work is replete with the most curious details of the Aborigines, before their peculiar customs had become modified by contact with the whites. Although he was one of the earliest, yet he was one of the most curious and accurate observers of the customs and peculiarities of the Aborigines who have attempted to describe them. Scarcely a trait which has excited the attention of the historian or the narrator in the three centuries which have elapsed, has escaped his observation and description, " (Field, Indian Bibliography, p.2). Dampstain and discoloration to spine of volume I, spine with tears at the head; volume II spine sunned and headband with small chips; light soiling to boards on map volume, tiny tear at one crease on map; all volumes hinges split but solid, with small institutional bookplate to front pastedowns, owner's nautical bookplate opposite, otherwise contents unopened (uncut), overall good.

Alexander, Caroline  
The Bounty The True Story of the Mutiny on the Bounty

Publisher: Viking 2003.
Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket First Edition; First Printing Unread copy; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 491 pages; More than two centuries have passed since Master's Mate Fletcher Christian mutinied against Lieutenant Bligh on a small, armed transport vessel called Bounty. Why the details of this obscure adventure at the end of the world remain vivid and enthralling is as intriguing as the truth behind the legend.

In giving the Bounty mutiny its historical due, Caroline Alexander has chosen to frame her narrative by focusing on the court-martial of the ten mutineers who were captured in Tahiti and brought to justice in England. This fresh perspective wonderfully revivifies the entire saga, and the salty, colorful language of the captured men themselves conjures the events of that April morning in 1789, when Christian's breakdown impelled every man on a fateful course: Bligh and his loyalists on the historic open boat voyage that revealed him to be one of history's great navigators; Christian on his restless exile; and the captured mutineers toward their day in court. As the book unfolds, each figure emerges as a full-blown character caught up in a drama that may well end on the gallows. And as Alexander shows, it was in a desperate fight to escape hanging that one of the accused defendants deliberately spun the mutiny into the myth we know today-of the tyrannical Lieutenant Bligh of the Bounty.

Ultimately, Alexander concludes that the Bounty mutiny was sparked by that most unpredictable, combustible, and human of situations-the chemistry between strong personalities living in close quarters. Her account of the voyage, the trial, and the surprising fates of Bligh, Christian, and the mutineers is an epic of ambition, passion, pride, and duty at the dawn of the Romantic era.

Publisher: London: Printed for the Hakluyt Society, 1857..
4, iv, 280 pp. 8vo. Cloth. First edition. Illus. with 18 b/w drawings. Hakluyt Society, First series: No. 21. Sabin 4805. Field 118. Spain & Spanish America II: 51. Text originally published at Venice, 1572. The supplementary material consists of the 1857 annual report. "The narrative of Giralamo Benzoni is one of the most interesting of all the early travellers in America, not only for the minute details of the life and habits of the Aborigines more than three centuries ago, but for the evident fidelity to truth, and the consequent reliance we may feel that we are viewing the common life of the natives before what we term civilization had corrupted them. Eighteen facsimiles of the curious woodcuts of the period are inserted in the text, most of which are illustrative of some phases in the customs of the Indians. They were reproduced by De Bry. Born at Milan in 1519, he abandoned his country to seek for adventures in the New World at the age of twenty-two. After fourteen years of travels he returned in 1556 and published his Historia del Mondo, which has been esteemed a great success, and translated into several languages, " (Field, Indian Bibliography, p. 29). Nick to spine just above series title otherwise a very good unopened (uncut) copy, one leaf town at lower margin.

The reports were those of Semen Dezhnev, leader of the expedition and one of its 26 survivors. ...Müller published an account of the voyage in 1758 [which]… answered the long-standing question of the geographical relation between Asia and America, and became a factor in the sending to the north Pacific of Captain Cook to look for a northwest or northeast passage between Europe and the Pacific. …[this is] a drawing together and critical examination of the relevant documents and studies made of the voyage into a single and hopefully, balanced treatment of it and its participants…' Dj; near fine. stock#23365.
