Iv, 1073,  pages, marbled boards, leather back-strip, back-strip frayed, hinges loose, ex-library with usual library markings otherwise very good. 1st edition. Volume 47 only. From the preface: The year, of which we are the historians has been marked by the most important events, the results of which must bear very materially upon the condition and views of a great portion of mankind. To the fresh aggressions of France, which raised a new coalition against her; to the different negociations (sic) which preceded the war on the continent; and to the details of the disastrous campaign, which terminated in the plains of Moravia, a more than ordinary care has been applied, and we trust the detail will well repay the curiosity of the reader. If to record the successes of the French upon the continent have proved a task equally irksome and disagreeable, it has been far otherwise when the exploits of the British navy, within the present year, have passed us in review. By them, the proud threatenings of our bitterest and most powerful enemy have been proved as vain as impotent; and we exulted in retracing the steps which led to the most splendid victory, ever obtained upon the ocean. The investigation of Indian affairs, the importance of which his every hour becoming more obvious, has employed our best exertions, and will, we are convinced, be found well worthy of perusal. Articles and State Papers include Dispatches from Lord Lake, containing an Account of the Siege of Bhurtpore; and from General Smith, communicating his Success over Ameer Khan, in Indostan, Interesting Account of Lieut. Yeo's gallant Action at Muros Bay, Further Particulars of the Battle of Trafalgar, Letter from Napoleon to the Landamman of Switzerland, Capitulation of Ulm to the Army of his Majesty the Emperor of France, American President's Speech - Washington, March 4th, An Account of the Life and Writings of Father Boscovich, Account of the double Boats built by the Direction of Sir Sydney Smith, Account of Submarine Mines in Cornwall, Account of Sir Philip Monckton, Some Transactions of the Civil Wars. Account of Books covers three books including Letters from Paraguay &c by John Constance Davie and Narrative of a Voyage to Brasil &c, by Thomas Lindley. ; 1073 pages. N° de réf. du libraire 23584
