Descripción

12mo. pp. 35 p.l., 389. 4 folding engraved plates & 1 folding engraved map. title in red & black. A very good copy, bound in old half sprinkled calf (a few short tears & repairs to plates - no loss). armorial bookplate of Colonel Cooper. First Edition. No doubt anxious to capitalize on the tremendous success of the Nouvelle Découverte, published the previous year, Hennepin issued this sequel, adding new material drawn from contemporary sources, on Indian manners and customs and various travels in North America. The first eight chapters describe the adventures and murder of La Salle, while the last relate of the English treatment of the Recollets after the taking of Quebec in 1629. Lengthy passages are lifted from Le Clercq's Établissement de la Foy. Despite the 'rascally' friar's liberal indulgence in plagiarism, for which he has been justly criticized, according to Thwaites, his works still stand as "invaluable contributions to the sources of American history; they deserve study, and to this day furnish rare entertainment. We can pardon much to our erratic friar, when he leaves to us such monuments as these." The four plates by Van Vianen include a fine romantic view of the taking of Quebec by the English in 1629 and a portrayal of the murder of La Salle. Dionne II 246. Gagnon I 1651. Harrisse 177.
