Devonport: Hiorns and Miller,, 1928. First edition, first impression, scarce, with just two locations on Library Hub (British Library and National Maritime Museum), WorldCat adding one only, at Plymouth Library. It was published "to commemorate the first commission of HMS Emerald". The first part is "a short account of the voyaging and deeds" of the ship, which went to China, India, East Africa and the Persian Gulf between 1926 and 1928. There are some curious stories related in this section, including a meeting with Ibn Saud in which the crew of the Emerald give the king a gift of his favourite beverage - home-made soda water - and a long account of preparations for the defence of Kuwait, a description of the town and some comments on Sheikh Ahmed al-Jaber al-Sabah, Emir of Kuwait. The second part is a collection of writings by other members of the crew, including many anecdotes and humorous poems by Captain H. G. C. Franklin. The third and final part is a summary of the sports and entertainment… Read More

Description:
Paris., 1782. A very pretty view in which a group of travellers relax in the shade of a tree, some smoking hookahs. Their weapons are laid on the ground in front of them, and their horses graze behind them. In the background is the town they are heading towards. In 1776 Choiseul-Gouffier and the artist J.B. Hilaire joined a cartographic survey of the Mediterranean. Volume I of Voyage Pittoresque, his account of their tour of the Greek islands, the coast of Asia Minor, and of his travels on the mainland, was immediately acclaimed on publication in 1778. According to Brunet, it was incontestably the most beautiful production of this kind seen until then. Choiseul-Gouffier's work offered for the first time, illustrations of remote places that complemented the scrupulously researched narrative. Copper engraving. Later colour. Fine condition, with wide margins. Size: 37 x 25.5 cm. (14½ x 10 inches)
