Description Exacte Des Iles De L’Archipel ...

Description

The original sheets and plates of the first edition, reissued with a new title-page. The date on the engraved title has not been changed and is exactly as in the first edition, with the date 1702. According to an advert on the title verso, Gosse and Neaulme ‘found’ the leftover sheets of the first edition of Dapper’s work in a storeroom and decided to reissue the work under their own names because it was now scarce. Is it only coincidence that Pieter vander Aa’s tremendous Galerie agréable du monde, which uses plates from Dapper’s work, was completed the previous year? This reissue is much less common than the first edition; Gosse and Neaulme probably had only a small supply of original sheets to work with.
