1780 1ed RARE Complete VOYAGES Maps Captain Cook America Explorers Africa 32v

The best book of its kind!

An extremely rare, 32-volume complete set of La Harpe’s ‘General History of Voyages’! This extensive work was begun by La Harpe, and, after the first 21 volumes, was completed by a number of other historians. This particular set does not include the atlas tome; however, it is complete with 100+ engravings and the three expected maps of the South Pacific Ocean, Arabia, and Greece. Not only does this work describe the geography of specific voyages, but it covers the sciences, commerce, religion, and customs of people groups from Africa, Asia, Americas, and Pacific Islands.According to Sabin, La Harpe’s ‘Voyages’ is“a work that has met with greater success than any other of the same kind; the fidelity of the narration, the striking details of adventures, and the lively pictures of manners, etc., it presents, will always give it a peculiar and lasting merit. Contains all the early voyages of America.”
