Éditeur : A. Clark, London

Date d'édition : 1677

Edition : Third edition.

Description :

8vo, titlepage, 3ff, folding map, pp 447 (misnumbered 547), and 9ff of index. "The third Edition enlarged by the Author, with a new and accurate Map." Sabin notes that the final chapter of the first edition, relating his trip to Rome, was suppressed in all later editions. Gage was a consummate rascal and his story of life in Mexico -- a unique relation in its time, as non-Spaniards were not alllowed into the Spanish colonies -- provided the only picture of the places described available in the English-speaking world. He was a Dominican priest in Mexico and Guatemala for about 10 years before making his "escape" back to England, funded by the theft of his parishioners' contributions, and ready and willing to stir up mischief for the Spanish, of which this book is one evidence. The other is the island of Jamaica, which he convinced Cromwell to seize, being insufficiently protected by the Spanish. Provenance of this copy: on ffep is the distinguished bookplate of G.R.G. Conway (1873 - 1926?), who was an English civil engineer who spent a number of years in Mexico as director of utility companies; but he was also a historian of Mexico and great collector: he issued in a very limited edition a selection of Gage's book in 1920. On front paste down is the bookplate of Frederick Ducane Godman (1834 - 1919), English natural scientist, co-author of Biologia Centrali-Americanum. Sabin 26300. Contemporary speckled calf, original spine relaid, with raised bands and title piece, in slipcase. Map in excellent condition: very good copy. N° de réf. du libraire 6312
