The second, "improved" German edition of Jacob Boswell's Historical-Geographical Description of Corsica, with reports and anecdotes from Pascal Paoli, the Corsican General, and Sysang's highly detailed folding map of Corsica: "Neue und Accurate Carte von Corsica." Boswell's history, with its sympathetic view of the Corsican independence struggle, made a hero of Paoli in England. This exemplar is from the library of the German princely house of Hannover.
