Claude Lebeau - Avantures du Sr. C. Le Beau, avocat en Parlement, ou Voyage curieux et nouveau parmi les Sauvages de - 1738

Volume 1 only, complete with its map of North America. Included are two illustrations, one of which has an old restoration.


In 1738, two volumes of the book entitled Aventures de s. C. Le Beau, avocat en Parlement, ou Voyage curieux et nouveau parmi les Sauvages de l’Amérique septentrionale dans lequel on trouvera une description du Canada avec une relation très particulière des anciennes coutumes, mœurs et façons de vivre des barbares qui l’habitent et de la manière dont ils se comportent aujourd’huy was published. The book, which was part of the exotic literature which had been highly fashionable since the second half of the 17th century, must have had some success since a German translation was published in Frankfurt in 1752.
