Description

Gilbert Farquhar Mathison sailed from Lisbon to Rio in 1821, visiting the Swiss settlement of Nova Friburgo. He then boarded an American brig destined for Chile and Peru, and at Callao he took another ship to the Sandwich Islands.

Includes a folding map of the Sandwich Islands and beautiful color plates depicting Peruvian women and a native Sandwich Islander. Sabin and Borba de Moraes call for four plates, as in this copy, but the copy in the Hill collection contains only three.

"Of the 170pp. on Brazil the best passage is the description of the attempted Swiss colonization, at that time in full decay, and general remarks about Brazilian progress" (Borba de Moraes)

xii,478pp. plus four color plates, folding map, errata page, and [2]pp. of advertisements
