Volume 17 of the German edition of Prevost d'Exile's Histoire Generale des Voyages, with all 30 of the original maps and plans (derived from Bellin) and 9 of the 11 views of the Arctic regions, northern North America, and the islands of the Caribbean. Unusual for this work, all the maps and plates are in full old color, beautifully applied. In addition to plates depicting people, costumes, customs, and sights of the Americas (including a sugarmill, a beaver hunt, and a Caribbean man and woman), the volume includes maps and plans by Bellin of the north polar region, Spitzbergen, and Grenada, St. Domingue, Jamaica, St. Lucia and other Caribbean islands. A superb exemplar of this German Prevost volume.
