Title : Recueil de divers voyages faits en Afrique et en l'Amerique, qui n'ont point esté encore publiez..

Date : Paris, Louis Billaine, 1674.
Size : 9.8 x 7.5 inches. / 25.0 x 19.0 cm.

Description :First edition of this collection of significant and interesting voyages, edited by a scholar and book collector who served in the employ of Louis XIV before being appointed Keeper of the King's Library at St. James by Charles II.
The compilation includes French-language travelogues of Barbados, the Nile River, Ethiopia, "l'Empire du Prčte-Jean," Guiana, Jamaica, and the English colonies, with illustrations including banana and palmetto trees, Caribbean pottery, and maps of New England, Jamaica (including Florida and the Antilles), and Barbados.
Some of both the voyages and the maps make their first published appearances here-among them the New England map depicting the Maryland and Virginia coastlines, engraved by R. Michault after one contained in Richard Blome's Description of the Island of Jamaica, part of which work appears here translated into French. Altogether, a volume notable both for its strong African and North American content and for the aesthetic appeal of its plates and pleasingly ornamented typography.

Lacking the folding map of the Nile. Several small wormholes in centerfold, affecting the first 10 pages. The map of "Nouvelle Angleterre" with a repair of tear in lower right corner (6cm into engraved area). Page 46/47 in "Relation de l'orgine, m|x|urs, coustumes" not present (but apparently no text is missing !).
