By George Anson, Esq; Commander in Chief of a Squadron of His Majesty's Ships, sent upon an Expedition to the South-Seas. Compiled from Papers and other Materials of the Right Honourable George Lord Anson, and published under his Direction, by Richard Walter, M. A. Chaplain if His Majesty's Ship the Centurian in that expedition. Illustrated with forty-two copperplates. London: Printed for the Author, by John and Paul Knapton, in Ludgate-Street, 1748. First edition, first issue: a large-paper subscriber's copy printed on Royal Paper (leaf size: 28.5 x 22.5 cm). 42 engraved plates of illustrations, maps, plans, and charts; all but one are folding. [34], 417, [3] pp. with a list of subscribers bound in near the front and directions to the binder at the end. Quarto: A4 a4 b1 c-d4 B-3G4 [ ]2. The final two leaves are unsigned.

Full leather binding, worn but sound: contemporary calf boards that have been rebacked, long ago, showing discoloration along joints and some edges of boards. Plain endpapers. All edges marbled. Overall, a very good copy. "Of this important work there were many subsequent editions and translations. Four came out the same year as the original.. Of the two first issued in 1748, one was for the author himself, which is the genuine first.. This famous and unfortunate expedition, consisting at the start of eight ships, was sent under the command of George Anson at the beginning of the war with Spain, to harass the Spaniards on the western coast of South America. Seven ships were lost around Cape Horn and on the coast of Chili and out of 900 men who left England on board more than 600 perished.. The primary objective of the expedition was not attained, but by the capture of the Manila Galleon near China, Anson and the surviving members of his crew reached England much the richer.. Walter's account of the voyage is a model of what such literature should be.." Cox I, p. 49. (Also, Sabin 1629). .
