            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.

Original edition of this important scientific relationship due to the French astronomer Guillaume Joseph Hyacinthe Jean-Baptiste The Gentil of the Galaisière (1725-1792). The latter embarked on the order of the Academy of Sciences for India to observe the passage of Venus on the disk of the Sun. He left Brest on March 26, 1760 aboard the Berryer, a vessel of fifty guns of the East India Company, and arrived on July 10 at the Ile-de-France (Mauritius), hoping to find another ship that would sail for India. Unable to reach Pondicherry because of the conflict with the English, he made some observations in Mauritius and decided to wait for the next passage of Venus eight years later. Thus his scientific journey will last in the end eleven and a half years. He then makes the most of his long stay and travels through India and the Indian Ocean from Madagascar to Manila, collecting specimens of natural sciences, geographical positions or ethnological evidence to study the tides, monsoons, natural history, astronomy and Indian religion. His work contains many valuable information on Madagascar, Mauritius, Reunion and the Philippines, details on the mornings of the Indians on the Coromandel coast, on the astronomy of the Brahms, astronomical observations made in Pondicherry, remarks on navigation through the Strait of Malacca. He managed to reach Pondicherry where the governor had him build an observatory to which Le Gentil will devote himself more than a year. The rich iconography of the book consists of 27 engraved plates and maps dedicated to the collected information and its astronomical observations. Minimal age tanning to the closed text block edges and a Very Good clean and sound condition set. Member of the P.B.F.A.

Dugald Carmichael enrolled at the University of Glasgow to study Classics, attending the 1787 Greek class of John Young. He was born in Lismore, Argyll, son of Archibald. After attending the University of Glasgow, Carmichael took up the study of Medicine at the University of Edinburgh, from where he qualified as a surgeon. He served as an assistant-surgeon in the Argyllshire Fencibles in Ireland for nine years, before entering the 72nd Highlanders Regiment as an ensign. Carmichael would go on to take part in numerous expeditions during his career as an army surgeon: In 1805, he was among those who served under Sir David Baird, who commanded the expedition against the Cape of Good Hope. In 1807, Carmichael volunteered to go to Algoa Bay, modern day Port Elizabeth; In 1810, he was part of the expedition in Mauritius, to capture it from French rule; in 1817 he joined the expedition that took possession of Tristan da Cunha. Carmichael was granted leave in 1813 during which time he explored the Island of Bourbon, modern day Réunion. Carmichael returned to Argyll in 1817, where he stayed with his sister for two years near Oban, before becoming tenant in 1820 of the farm Ardtur, where he remained till his death in September 1827. He died in Appin, and is buried in the Churchyard of Lismore. As well as distinguishing himself as army surgeon, Captain Carmichael had continued to develop his life-long interest in natural science, to the extent that he claimed to be known as the 'Father of Marine Botany'. His extensive travels overseas were also used to add to his botanical knowledge and collections. Among his published research was Some Account of the Island of Tristan da Cunha and of its Natural Productions (1818). As a friend and correspondent of Sir William Hooker, Hooker named many marine plants after him, including the Carmichaeliana or New Zealand Broom. Charles Darwin also acknowledged his contribution in referring to Carmichael as 'an authority on many points in natural science'. Contains folding colour frontispiece map., [iv] 65 pp., errata.
