[SHEERE, HENRY SIR]:
A Discourse Touching Tangier: in a Letter to a Person of Quality. To which is Added, the Interest of Tangier: by Another Hand. London, 1680.
Pp. (ii), 5-40. Uncut copy bound in half calf to period style, gilt spine with red gilt morocco label. First edition. For several centuries Tangier has been an important trade post due to it's position at the Strait of Gibraltar where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic Ocean. It was a British colony from 1661 when it was given to Charles II as part of the dowry from the Portugese, until 1684. The first part of this work contains a letter about the colony, it's contributions in the past and what opportunities may exist for the future, and in addition some general information regarding the trade. The second part, ascribed to Henry Sheere, gives a postitive picture of the city and tries to describe and explain the difficulties for the English people living there. Furthermore he mentions the building of a mole in the harbour, and claims that when it's completed it will make Tangier the most prosperous and hopeful city that belongs to Britain! However, the British were forced to withdraw and destroyed the city and it's port before they left in 1684. Kress 1517. Playfair, Morocco, 271.
