Antiquarian

Hardcover. 'To which is added, an adventure in the Champs Elises, near Paris; also an interesting account of the unfortunate disaster which befel Monsieur Pilatre de Rozier at Boulogne; with a translation of the elegant eulogium upon him, by the Marquis de Maisonfort: With abstracts from the registers of the Parliament of Paris; Containing a year's list of Criminals Sentenced at Paris; With the nature of their crimes and punishments; translated from his French." Original calf, at sometime well re-backed. Red block label, gilt cross bands. Edges a little rubbed, else a very nice copy. Minor stain to top outer margin of first few leaves, small library stamp to f.e.p. Pilatre de Rozier was the first human to ascend in a balloon, a feat he accomplished in 1783. In 1785 he determined to cross the channel from Boulogne to England in a balloon built and owned by Romaine, who was his companion. In June he deemed conditions to be right for the ascent and crossing, but many thought the place of departure inappropriate. The balloon ascended and stayed aloft for about half an hour before it caught fire, blew up and fell to earth. The description of the state of the two bodies is somewhat gruesome. Extremely scarce, as few as two recorded copies in Ireland and Britain

Hardcover. 1st edition. Errata (2 lines) on p. [8]. 180 p. 17 cm. Bookplate on inside cover, Ex Libris. Contemporary cloth-backed boards. Binding a little loose. Light spotting, occasionally not so light. Covers a little rubbed. Antiquarian. The author specifically points out to the reader in his introduction that his narrative confines itself more especially to a consideration of natural objects, and the incidental events of travel. He sailed from New York for the Mediterranean, visiting Naples, Palermo, Syracuse, Malta, Messina, the Vulcanian Islands, before returning to Naples. He seems to studiously avoid what he terms artificial wonders. In the penultimate chaper he recounts the tale of an earlier visit to Scotland where he fell in company with another traveller obsessed with often macabre stories of people being buried alive. Some of these tales the author recounts in this chapter
