THEVENOT, Melchisedech. Relations de divers Voyages curieux... nouvelle edition. Paris: Thomas Moette, 1696.
4 parts in 2 volumes, 2° (344 x 218mm). Volume titles and occasional text printed in red and black. 30 engraved or woodcut plates, charts or maps (many folding or double-page), 61 engraved or woodcut illustrations (including 46 printed recto and verso of 23 consecutive leaves). Old mottled calf (worn).
A good copy of an interesting collection originally issued between 1663 and 1672. This edition is a re-issue with new titles and other mainly minor changes. The collation is highly complex (cf. Brunet V.810-813) and it is not clear what constitutes a perfect copy; this lot is therefore sold not subject to return. (2)
