Journal D'Un Voyage Fait Dans L'Interieur de L'Amerique Septentrionale [Travels Through the Interior Parts of America] / Complete Two Volume Set
Paris, La Villette, Libraire, 1793. Leather Bound. pp. 336, 453. 8vo. Bound in 3/4 leather over marbled boards. Volume I contains three nicely-done copper engravings: a detailed folded plan of a fort, a folded view of 'Les Americains y mirent le Feu a l'approche de l'Armee Burgoyne', and a striking image of an 'Indian warrior'. Volume II contains a folding map of Anburey's travels. It appears these volumes were re-bound sometime in the 19th century. The first original blank page of volume I contains some booksellers' notes (in pencil). The contents show some foxing and the paper is a bit rolled. The binding is tight, but the leather is quite rubbed and the rear joint of Vil. II is rather weak. Overall, a good set. The text is in French. Anburey was a British soldier and the author of a disputed narrative of his travels in North America from 1776 to 1781. He sailed from Cork in 1776 in charge of Irish recruits of the 47th regiment, and served under General John Burgoyne in the Battle of Saratoga. Taken prisoner, he was sent back to Britain in 1781. He stayed in the army one more year; then returned to private life. Anburey wrote 'Travels Through the Interior Parts of America', which was first published in London in 1789, and then again in London in 1791 as a 'New Edition'. It is written as a series of 79 letters addressed 'to my dear friend' and described by its author as 'the rapid effusions of a confessedly inexperienced writer'. The book proved popular in England and was translated into French 'et enrichi de notes par M. Noel ancien Professeur de belles-lettres au College de Louis-le-grand' (in the 1793 edition). The first letter is dated August, 1776, and the last December, 1781. Sabin 1369. Wagner-Camp 226.
