    Illustrated with Numerous Engraved Maps

    [Thomas Osborne, editor]. A Collection of Voyages and Travels, Consisting of Authentic Writers in Our Own Tongue, Which Have Not Before Been Collected in English, or Have Only Been Abridged in Other Collections.... London: Thomas Osborne, 1745-1747.

    First edition. Two folio volumes. xii, lvii, 873; 931, [30] pages. Many engraved maps. Illustrations. Index.

    Original full calf over boards. Backstrips inexpertly reinforced with rough fabric. Leather title labels to spines with gilt lettering. Raised bands to spines. Hinges reinforced with black fabric tape. Bookplates of previous owner on front pastedowns; also with bookplates of the Yale College Library, with "duplicate" stamps. Moderate foxing throughout. Overall, a tight, clean set in very good condition.

    Essentially these two volumes were brought out to augment the reissuing of the Collection of Voyages and Travels by Churchill. According to Sabin, they serve as a "necessary accompaniment to Churchill's Collection, all the works being different. They do, in fact, form Vols. VII and VIII of that collection."

    ESTC T97843. Sabin 57765.
