WELD Isaac
Voyage au Canada – et dans la partie septentrionale des états-Unis de l’Amérique –, dans les années 1795, 1796 et 1797
Chez Gerard, Imprimerie de Munier, Paris 1799 (An 8), in-8 (12 x 20 cm), (4) viij, 321 pp & 344 pp & (4) 294 pp., 3 volumes, contemporary sheep
First French edition, with a large folding map of Canada and 11 steel-engraved plates after drawings by the author (Niagara Falls, Diamond Cape, etc.).
Contemporary half brown sheep, spine decorated with four compartments with tools, roulettes to foot. Red morocco title label and green morocco volume labels. Speckled edges. Binder’s label: Grosclaude à Metz. A good copy.
This voyage was undertaken by the author in the hope of finding a place where the Irish could settle. It is, nonetheless, still a classic account of a voyage, with a special eye to commerce and agriculture. The author spent two years traveling, starting from Philadelphia, in North-Eastern America and Canada, with Native American guides.
