Voyage et Avantures de François Leguat et de ses compagnons, en deux isles [îles] désertes des Indes Orientales. Avec la relation des choses les plus remarquables qu'ils ont observées dans l'isle [l'île] Maurice, à Batavia, au Cap de Bon Espérance, dans l'isle [l'île] de Sainte Hélène, et en d'autres endroits de leur route. Le tout enrichi de cartes et de figures. [Voyage and frontiers of François Leguat and his companions, in two deserted islands of the East Indies, with the relation of the most remarkable things which they observed in Mauritius Island, in Batavia, at the Cape of Good Hope, in the isle of St. Helena, and in other places of their route. All enriched with maps and figures].

Leguat, François [François Leguat (1637 - September 1735) was a French explorer and naturalist].


(Book #ID 95306)

A Londres, (London): Chez David Mortier, Marchand Libraire 1720. 1720.

Set comprising two volumes of text with plates. Uniform matching hard back binding in full red morocco leather covers, raised bands with gilt titles and tools, new hand made end papers. 8vo. 6¾'' x 4''. Leguat was one of a small group of male French Protestant refugees who in 1691 settled on the then uninhabited island of Rodrigues in the western Indian Ocean. The colonist's became discontented with their life on the island and after a stay of two years managed to escape to Mauritius in a small boat. Leguat arrived back in Europe in June 1698 and wrote this book recounting his adventures which was published in 1708. In his book Leguat describes several species of birds and tortoises that were endemic to Rodrigues but are now extinct. The French edition was published in both London and Amsterdam. An English translation with the title 'A new voyage to the East-Indies' was published in London, and a Dutch edition in Utrecht. Some of the text is very similar to passages found in works by Maximilien Misson, another French Huguenot living in exile. It appears that either Leguat copied Misson or, more likely, Misson assisted Leguat with the book and wrote the preface. The book is notable in containing Leguat's natural history observations on the now extinct fauna of Rodrigues, including the Rodrigues solitaire, the Rodrigues rail, the domed and the saddle-backed Rodrigues giant tortoises, and Newton's parakeet. Comprising - Volume I: original green tie bookmark., engraved frontispiece., title page printed in red and black with small vignette., xx [preface]., engraved header., embellished capital letter., 164 pp [+ i]., 4 maps [3 folding]., 14 engraved plates [1 folding]., 1 folding text plate. Volume II: title page printed in red and black with different small vignette., engraved header, embellished capital letter., 180 pp [+ 32 pp contents]., 8 engraved plates [1 folding]., 1 map. Volume II page number 113 incorrectly printed as page 123. Just a little age toning to the text block edges and in Very Good clean and tidy condition. Member of the P.B.F.A.
