Map of Parts of Africa - Coast of Cape Verdo - Plan of Gamboa. Information: This important engraving is from Awnsham Churchill's. A Collection of Voyages and Travels.
The engraving is from the third (and considered best) edition of the work published in London in 1744 by Henry Lintot and John Osborne. The first edition was published in 1704. Part of the engravings we're able to present derive from the rare supplement by Thomas Osborne. Churchill and Osborne's work was celebrated for its range of illustrations and original accounts.The supplement included information from Lord Oxford's Library. Some of the illustrations in the work pertained to the following voyages: Brawern and Herckemanns Voyage to Chili in 1642 and 1643; Captain John Moncks voyage in 1619 and 1620 to Hudsons Straits, to discover a passage between Greenland and America; Nieuhoffs voyages to Brazil and the East Indies; John Smiths travels in Europe, Asia, Africa, and America from the years 1592 to 1629; the life of Columbus by his son; Barbots description of North and South Guinea; and an account of the discovery of America from Herreras History of the West Indies. This is a very valuable collection, both for its range of coverage and for the fact that it gives the original accounts.
The third edition is considered to be the best edition because of its greater inclusion and its copious index. This set contains the rare two volumes, known as the Harleian Voyages, compiled from Lord Oxford's library by Osborne.
