8m London, T. Jefferys, 1756

There is, we believe, no book of about this date and size that can be compared
with this for valuable geographical and bibliographical information respecting
Canada and Nova Scotia or Acadia. It embraces the whole Territory South of the
River and Gulf of St. Lawrence, East of Lake Champlain and North Massachusetts,
and includes all the disputed tracts and grants of both the English and French
Governments. The two valuable maps on the same scale, show clearly what was
claimed by each party.

8vo. Tot Enchuysen. By Jacob Lenaertsi, Meyn, 1598

Linschoten the traveller was the translator and editor of this beautiful Dutch
edition. On Saturday the 8 of Oct. 1 594 the States General granted his request to
reproduce this work of Acosta. His long and interesting preface is dated 1 May
1598. The work was printed by Gillis Rooman at Haerlem. This honest Dutch
translation becomes very important from the fact that De Bry's German and Latin
translations in his Part IX America, are both taken from it instead of the Spanish
original, the whole seven books, chapter for chapter, except perhaps the first two
books in Latin. Books 3 to 7 Acosta himself did not write in Latin.

view, of the Negotiations that terminated in the acknowledgment of American
Independence by Great Britain, together with President Adams' defence of his
Administration against the charges of Alexander Hamilton.

1277 AGRICOLA. Two Letters from Agricola to Sir William Howe ;

To which are annexed, By the same Author, Political Obser-
vations, 63 pp. with a slip of errata pasted on to blank page 64,
uncut Svo. London : for J. Millidge, 1779

Agricola herein reviews with great severity the conduct of Sir William Howe,
during his whole command in America. Nor is he a whit less condemnatory of the
conduct and achievements of General Burgoyne. Of Burgoyne he writes, " He is a
deep and eloquent military theorist ; he plans the subjugation of the rebels ; and
in his loyal delirium he brandishes the tomahawk and the scalping knife, which
alternately glitter in his magnificent periods. But all these heroic visions are anni-
hilated by the convention at Saratoga. As a writer, he may be compared with the
picture of the nativity, which was lately to be seen in the exhibition. Its dimensions
and figures are extravagantly large ; its colours are glaring ; but while it was exe-
cuted by the artist, he had not one idea that corresponded with the scene which
he intended to represent. The ass is the leading and prominent object in the
group and continually solicits our attention."

8vo. A Berlin, Chez Samuel Pitra, 1771

In 1768 De Pauw, a young Dutch priest at the age of 28 published his Recherches
Philosophique sur les Americains. vol. I, vol. II, following it the next year. He
was a fresh-water traveller, having never seen anything whereof he wrote, but
drew on his prejudices and imagination for his facts to prove that the Ameri-
cans were a miserable set of deteriorations, and that America was Europe
made worse. In 17C9 Dom. Pernetty replied in his Dissertation with considerable
ability and acidity, but he also was an Abbe who had never seen America and
wrote with great indiscretion and little knowledge. This brought forth from



180

De Pauw in 1770 his Defence of his first two volumes, which added no new
facts, but sopped the whole controversy in bitterness and absurdity. In 1771
Pernetty published his Examen in two volumes as a rejoinder. By this time he had
studied the subject pretty well, and successfully refuted many of De Pauw's
statements, but the difficulty was that he had had no practical experience in the
matter and reasoned only from what he could see from the top of a pile of books.
His vision was limited and his experience nothing. Meanwhile the witty
anonymous author of this little work, seeing the absurd wooden sword contest
of these two PP in historical darkness, having himself been in America and lived
among the Savages during part of the seven years' war, put his plain com mon
sense notions in type in these fifteen chapters, casting a pleasant veil of obscurity
over the two priestly champions. This book fills 80 pp. counting the title and
preface. In some copies there is inserted, as in this one, a leaf after the title called
Arertissement an Lecteur, to show that he takes no notice of Pernetty 's last
work because his and that work were in the press at the same time. He could, he
says, have made a book on the subject but did not think it worth the trouble.

Few modern works relating to America evince so much original research as this.

them into undignified scrambles for the honor of reproducing them as *' discoveries

The above title gives no just idea of the character and value of this exceedingly
useful and handy book of nearly 800 pages. The whole history of the New
Continent is arranged in the form of annals under each year, from 1492 to 1776.

Master GOTARD ARTHUS of Dantzig was one of the editors of De Bry's Collec-
tion of Voyages, and was therefore necessarily well read in the early voyages and
discoveries of the Portuguese, the Spanish, the French, the Dutch and the English
to the East Indies by the routes of both Capes. He resided at Frankfort and
finished this work in September. 1605, after the first seven parts of De Bry's
India Orientalis had been published. In a condensed form this work is perhaps
one of the best summaries there is of all the various East India Voyages down to
1605, and hence to the bibliographer and geographer it is of very considerable
value. Chapter xxxv treats of the Molucca Islands and the divers routes thither
especially by the Straits of Magellan. The book, enabling the American historian
to trace the gradual and mysterious separation of the new hemisphere from the
old. is entitled to a permanent place among books on America.
