Quarto. XII, 191, [1]pp. Uncut. Original gilt-, and blind-stamped blue cloth, with gold lettering on spine. Robert Harcourt (1574?-1631) was an English explorer, projector of a South American colony, in what was later Guiana. On 23 March 1609, accompanied by his brother Michael and a company of adventurers, Robert Harcourt sailed for Guiana. On 11 May he arrived at the Oyapock River. He took possession in the king's name of a tract of land lying between the River Amazon and River Essequibo on 14 August, left his brother and most of his company to colonise it, and four days later embarked for England. At this time Harcourt was involved in a dispute with his brother-in-law, Anthony Fitzherbert, about his claim to the manor of Norbury, Derbyshire. He also appears to have been a target for penalties for Catholicism: on 8 November 1609 one Robert Campbell obtained a grant of the benefit of his recusancy. He ultimately obtained letters patent empowering him to plant and inhabit the land at Guiana, but was prevented by circumstances from visiting it again. The king renewed the grant on 28 August 1613 in favour of Harcourt and his heirs, Sir Thomas Challoner and John Rovenson. To promote the success of the scheme, Harcourt wrote this account of his adventures. This work is complete with its folded maps. Minor shelf wear. Offsetting to endpapers. Binding and interior in overall very good condition. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 39245
