Age toning to the page edges and end papers, smart bookplate inside belonging to one Robert Montgomery on board the 'Convoy'. Bancroft worked as a spy for Benjamin Franklin in Britain before the Revolution, and while serving as secretary to the American Commission in Paris. On 14 July 1763 he departed the colonies for British Guiana, where he became a doctor on a plantation. He soon expanded his practice to multiple plantations and wrote a study of the local environment. His discovery that the torpedo fish discharged electricity is notable, he also noted the transmission of yaws by flies on page 385 of this book. Bancroft grew tired of South America and left in 1766. He spent a year travelling between North America and South America before leaving for London. During the latter period, he was also a spy for Britain, reporting on dealings between France and the United States. Member of the P.B.F.A.

French Guiana [French: Guyane française; officially just Guyane] is an overseas region of France on the North Atlantic coast of South America. It has borders with two nations: Brazil to the east and south, and Suriname to the west. Its 83,534 km2 [32,253 sq mi] area has a very low population density of less than 3 km2 [1.2 sq mi], with half of its 236,250 people in 2012 living in the metropolitan area of Cayenne, its capital. The addition of the adjective 'French' in English comes from colonial times when five such colonies existed [The Guianas], namely from west to east: Spanish Guiana [now Guayana Region in Venezuela], British Guiana [now Guyana], Dutch Guiana [now Suriname], French Guiana, and Portuguese Guiana [now Amapá, a state in far northern Brazil]. French Guiana and the two larger countries to the north and west, Guyana and Suriname, are still often collectively referred to as the Guianas and comprise one large shield landmass. Pencil ownership name to the front free end paper, small repaired tear to the inner gutter of the first fold-out map, corners and spine tips rolled-in and in Very Good condition, no dust wrapper.
