Samuel Latham Mitciiill Barlow 





THE generous and genial nature of our lamented friend, Mr. 
Harlow, has already been the theme of just encomiums and 
eulogies. It behooves us now to recall his character and merits as 
an enlightened, liberal and public-spirited bibliophile. 

From his boyhood he loved books, and soon endeavored to form 
a collection. Never in those early days did he return home from 
his modest law office, however tired by hard work, without canvass- 
ing the book stores and bookstalls on the way, and more than once 
it was not in vain. The beautiful copy of the Antwerp edition of 
Thevet's Sitii:;ularitez de la France antarcticqut\ vellum bound, and 
stamped with the entwined crescents of Diane de Poitiers,* has no 
other origin, and was found in Nassau Street. 

At no time had it been the object of Mr. Barlow to accumulate 
a large library in every branch of science and literature. 'I'his he 
properly left to public institutions. Nor did he care to collect books 
which had no other merit than their extreme rarity. His aim was 
higher and more in accordance with common sense. From the 
start, he determined to embrace exclusively the history of America. 
The subject was already of sufficient scope to absorb hir efforts and 
means ; but with a just appreciation of its importance, he brought it 
within his reach by keeping chiefly in view original authorities and 
editions. To form regular series, comprehending separate epochs 
and distinct section of the New World ; to connect all the links, 
and to illustrate with parallel accounts events but little known, were 
always the primary moti-. es of his endeavors and purchases. It is 
thus that we come to find in his collection the invaluable first 
printed letters of Columbus, Vespuccius and Cortez ; the rich series 
of colonial pamphlets, English, French and Dutch, and the largest 
set of Jesuit Relations ever offered for sale. 

Under the circumstances, his library could never be very exten- 
sive, both on account of the high prices which that class of books 
already commanded, and of their increasing rarity and importance, 
at home and abroad. But when fortune commenced to smile on him 
in various ways, and he was informed that the precious library which 

Infra, No. 2444. 


Samitei, L. M. Barlow. 

Col. Thomas Aspinwall had collected during the thirty years of his 
residence as United States Consul at London could be purchased, 
he at once determined to acquire it at any cost. 

The books and manuscripts were in Boston, and the agent sent 
to bring them over, knowing the impatience of Mr. Barlow to behold 
as his own the desiderata which he had so long sought to possess, 
had the forethought to select two hundred or more of the choicest 
works, which he packed in a large trunk, and brought himself to 
New York. The rest, comprising about 3,700 volumes, were boxed 
up and sent to a store-house, until the room appropriated for the 
library in Mr. Barlow's new residence on Madison Avenue was 
ready to receive the entire collection, and they were destroyed in the 
conflagration wliich consumed the establishment of Messrs. Bangs 
Brothers during the night of the i8th of September, 1864. 

The sorrow of our friend was intense. We repaired together 
to Broadway, and vainly endeavored to save from the burning ruins 
a few scorched volumes. But, true to his patriotic instincts, he 
was half comforted with the thought that the rarest New England 
pamphlets, and particularly the manuscript records of the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts during the XVIIth century (No. 2765), 
so important for the history of his native State, had escaped destruc- 
tion, and were safely lodged away from the fire. 

Far from being discouraged by such a calamity, Mr. Barlow 
renewed his efforts, and at last succeeded in forming the remarkable 
collection of works relating to America, which, on account of the 
death of its founder, is now offered for sale. 

The difficulty of replacing those books was greater than ever, and 
it became even doubtful whether certain series could be completed. 
The Jesuit Relations, the New England, New Netherlands and 
Virginia colonial tracts, together with the matchless copies of 
Smith's History of Virginia^ presented a well-connected chain of 
historical and descriptive works embracing the North American 
continent. To continue it further South in the same style first 
required the original Spanish editions of the Letters of Ferdinand 
Cortez describing conquest of Mexico. Latin and Italian trans- 
lations figured at times in important booksellers' catalogues; but

where to find the Curias de rclacion printed cX Seville, Saragossa, 
Valencia and Toledo ? Mr. James Carter Hrown had been so for- 
tunate thirty years before, in securing a full set. Mr. Lenox, how- 
ever, notwithstanding printed appeals* distributed every where, and 
the most liberal offers, never could possess mere than two out of 
four, whilst none whatever were known to exist in any other private 
libraries, either in Europe or America. During one of our explor- 
ing expeditions, in search of early documents to copy and publish, 
we chanced to discover in Spain three of those priceless original 
Cartas, comprising in fact the entire text of the four, as the one 
which was printed at Saragossa in 1523, and of which only one 
specimen was known to exist,f is simply a reprint of the Seville 
edition of 1522. They soon found their way into the Bihliothcca 
BarUnviana. No others have been discovered since, and only five of 
the public libraries of Europe can boast of possessing either three 
of those great books, or even one. 

For the history of the discovery of America, Barlow possessed the 
celebrated Aspinwall copy of the Epistle of Columbus, printed by 
Stephanus Plannck at RomeJ (in 1493). This is unquestionably 
the first Latin edition of that memorable account, and the prototype 
of the reprints made in the same year at Paris, Antwerp and Hasle,g 
as well as of nearly all the reimpressions of the text published in the 
XVIth and XVIIth centuries, as is shown by the omission in every 
title of the name of Queen Isabelle. It was necessary for the tenor 
of De Cosco's translation to find Plannck's corrected edition, which.

which there is not a single, !,'•£•/;/«'«(• complete copy anywhere, and which we supposed 
to have been printed at Rome (B. A. V., No. 2). In reality, it was printed and 
published at liasle by Bergmann de Olpe, like the Veraidus of 1494. Compare the 
characters, initial letters and abbreviations with those in Brandt's poem Dc fuli^ctra 
anni 92, bearing in the colophon the initials and device (in CJerman) of Bergmann.

although not quite so rare as the first, attained such high prices 
when brought under the hammer. A very fine copy was secured by 
Mr. Barlow at private sale. 

The library contained three original Latin editions, and one Ger- 
man version of the separate account of the third voyage of Vespuc- 
cius; but there was a Venetian issue which then existed only in two 
libraries, viz.: the Trivulziana at Milan, and Marciana at Venice.* 
The beauty and peculiar style of its typography, as well as its origin, 
showing that the version in the Pcesi Nouamente retrouati had been 
borrowed from it for the text, and translated into the Venetian 
dialect before 1506, since this translation already figures in the 
Ferrara manuscript, rendered Mr. Barlow extremely desirous to find 
that edition. Happening to discover a duplicate in one of the bound 
collections of tracts made by Morelli for the Marciana, we obtained 
from the Italian Government the cession of that rare book to our 
friend. It is No. 14 of our Additamenta, and No. 2554 of the 
present catalogue. 

There was still wanting a work of the utmost importance for that 
already remarkable series of Americana. It was the first decade of 
Peter Martyr, printed at Seville in 1511, but with the supplementary 
leaves containing the table of errata and the map. We found at 
Madrid a splendid copy, which, when duly examined, preser^'-d 
differences theretofore unnoticed, in the title and address to Cou..v 
Tendiila.f Mr. Barlow purchased that important desideratum, and 
caused it to be bound in perfect Grolier style by Marius.J 

The works relating to the early history of Canada were among the 
chief objects of his solicitude, and lie spared neither efforts nor ex- 
pense to gather as many as he could. The Barlowiana contained 
the Champlains of 161 3, 1620 and 1632 in extremely fine condition, 
and all with the original maps, but it preserved no Lescarbot. The 
editions of 1609, 161 1 and 1612 could easily be obtained ; a single

bookseller of Paris, Mr. Porquet, had at the same time, a couple of 
years ago, so many as seven copies of the latter ; but Mr. Harlow 
wanted the valuable edition of i6i7*or 1618, the only one which is 
complete. It was not believed to be in any of the private or public 
libraries of France;f and Tross, after vainly seeking for that edition 
had been compelled to make his reprint from that of 1612, which 
lacks a chapter. It was found, but in New York. 

Mr. Barlow had given a standing and unlimited order for the 
Canadian book, which is unquestionably the most important for the 
religious history of Canada, and the origin of Montreal — not ex- 
cepting the Sagard or the LeClerc — besides being, perhaps, next to 
the Cartier of 1545, the rarest of that class of" works. Neither the 
Browniana, Lexoniana nor any other American library, whether 
public or private, possessed it, although a copy had once been sold 
in the United States twenty years ago for |)i6o; but no one could tell 
what had become of the volume. It was the Veritables Motifs de 
Messieurs et Dames de la Societe de Nostre Dame de Montreal, 
published at Paris in 1643, J but printed only for the use of Mr. 
Olier's friends, and so rare that even St. Sulpice did not possess it, 
and the Abbe Faillon was preparing, when he died, to have a man- 
uscript copy taken from the copy in the Paris National Library, 
the only one known to exist in France. A large paper copy was 
exhumed from among the scattered archives of a suppressed 
convent, and bought for Mr. Barlow just in time to \e it from the 
waste basket. 

The devotion of the religious orders for the missionaries sent to 
la Nouvelle-France in the XVIIth century was extremely great, 
and shared by certain pious and wealthy laymen affiliated to them 
in a still higher degree, if possible. The Relations never failed to 
give a separate account of the death of these courageous apostles. 
The nuns, especially, who fell the victims of their zeal, were remem-

bered with touching descriptions of their lives, efforts and last 
moments. The Fie de la Mire Marie de l' Incarnation, and of 
Father Chaumonot are well known. There was one of these bio- 
graphical letters printed with the Relation of 1669, but which, 
according to a vague tradition, had been published separately, and 
only for a few personal friends. We refer to ihtLettre circuiairc de 
la mart de la Revere nde Mere Catharine de S. Augustin, Religitusc 
Hospitaliire de Quebec. Mr. Barlow had set his heart on acquiring 
that rarissime book, if it ever could be discovered. The fact is that 
for an American bibliophile, who already possessed fiftyt^vo copies 
of the Jesuit Relations in original editions, whilst the richest private 
libraries in that class of works had never contained more than forty- 
three,* the Lcttrc Circulaire was worth having It had never 
figured in any sale or catalogue, and no traces of the book could be 
found in the inventories of the religious orders which we had been 
able to consult. We found it in a Paris bookstore, but the seller, 
who only suspected the value of it, was not long in becoming con- 
vinced of its importance, and fixed the price accordingly. It figures 
in the present catalogue under No. 1469. 

We could mention many other extremely valuable books, which 
patience, a liberal outlay and peculiar circumstances, permitted Mr. 
Barlow to place in his library. The reader will easily recognize 
them in the adjoining pages. 

* The most numerous collections of original editions of the Jesuit Relations 
ever offered for sale are the following :

unique as a separate edition. 

There is no complete set of these Jesuit Relations in original editions any- 
where. The one coming nearest completion is in the Paris National 1-ibrary. 
particularly since we caused the duplicate copy of the Relation of 1632, which was 
in the Arsenal Library, to be added. We have since found another copy of that 
first Relation in the Mazarine (No. 35,788). 

Samuel L. M. JJaklow. 


The wish of that kind and generous man always was that his 
hhrary should be kept intact, if possible, and rendered after his 
death as practica"y useful to the student as it had always been in 
his lifetime. To that effect, in 1883, he proposed to a New York 
literary institution to purchase it after having been valued by dis- 
interested experts, and to give one-half of the valuation. In justice 
to his family he could not do more. Nothing, however, came 
of this liberal offer ; and many years will elapse before patriotic 
donors and richly endowed societies are graced with another such 
opportunity to acquire those indispensable elements of the history 
of America. 

Millions and millions of dollars have been bequeathed during 
the last few years in New York, in Illinois, in California and in 
other States for the purpose of founding extensive public libraries. 
The amounts are certainly large enough to allow the acquisition of 
ancient books, as well as of those modern volumes, which can be 
easily obtained and which are destined to be always in the market. 
Can it be said that the administrators of those munificent and 
judicious bequests duly appreciate the entire importance of the 
trusts committed to them, when they let pass with supine indiffer- 
ence chances like the present, which will not occur again more than 
once or twice in a century, to secure at once books of such para- 
mount importance for the history of our country ? We have no 
Archivo de Indias, no Simancas, and since those books are the near- 
est copies of original manuscripts which are now lost, a collection 
of them should form the nucleus of a repository of printed archives. 
True it is that the Lenoxiana contains nearly all the early publi- 
cations and we can still form one or two collections of that char- 
acter. Boston or Philadelphia, Chicago or San Francisco, when in 
possession of ample means due to the patriotic munificence of 
American citizens, should take it at heart to enrich its public library 
with such historical and literary treasures. 

Perhaps the trustees imagine that Americana of the kind which 
we have just described can be found at any time. Not long since, 
a bibliophile of that school walked into our office, with the Biblio- 
theca Americana Vetustissima under his arm, and asked us to give 

X Samuf.i, I-. M. Hari.ow. 

him the address of the store in Paris where all the works mentioned 
in that bibliography could be purchased at a reasonable price. His 
surprise was unbounded when informed that if he possessed all the 
money of Mr. Vandcrbilt and had a century of life before him, he 
could not with that wealth, and in a hundred years, hope to get 
scarcely more than two-thirds of those books. Still, it was already 
something to the credit of that well-meaning citizen to have thought 
of including the accounts sent by Columbus, Vespuccius, Cortez, 
Pizarro and Jacques Cartier in an American public library. 

Barlow's greatest wish was to benefit others even more than 
himself ; and his library remained open to any one who desired 
to consult it. You had only to come to the house, ring the bell, 
express your intention, and you were at once ushered into that 
hospitable " Black Library," where every bookcase was constantly 
kept unlocked. If unable to come in person, or residing in a dis- 
tant city, books, maps and manuscripts were forwarded to the student 
who stood in need of them to continue or complete historical labors. 
As we are writing these lines, probably several valuable volumes and 
atlases still circulate hundreds of miles away from New York. 
The only regret of the owner was that so few availed themselves 
of the privilege. 

That great and open-handed bibliophile certainly appreciated, as 
well as any one, unique copies, priceless editions and artistic bind- 
ings ; but the possession of such rarities did not dry up his heart or 
enfeeble his mind. He would have blushed to keep for himself 
in a selfish and inabordable solitude a single one of those books, 
however precious, especially when it could, in the hands of a com- 
petent investigator, throw light upon certain obscure periods of our 
history. He was generous to excess ; and many a one, near and far, 
from Madison Avenue or William Street, has received at his hands 
important services, discreetly proffered, and still more discreetly 
received, which the ingratitude of some, and dishonesty of others, 
never prevented him from rendering again, to the last day of his life. 

Nor were his efforts limited to dispensing liberally sources of 
information by means of one ol the best libraries of American 

Samuel L. M. Bari.ow. 


books ever brought together, and in causing to be printed at his own 
cost, for private distribution, works on American subjects, which 
could not have been published otherwise.* He strove also to incul- 
cate in the few young men who cared for historical knowledge, 
notions of an elevated character regarding the early history of 
America, and a critical study of the facts and original authorities. 
He knew and felt that next to Christianity, the discovery of the New 
World was the greatest event of our era, and one destined, pre long 
perhaps, to evolve consequences which may remodel the con^^iiests 
of European civilization. The voyages of Columbus, Vespucciu.-., 
the Pinzons, Magellan, Cartier, will then be altogether things of the 
past, and studied probably with as much care and perseverance as 
scholars now endeavor to elucidate Solomon's expeditions to Ophir 
and Tharsis. If so, it will be necessary to interrogate again the 
old archives, and to examine by the light of trustworthy analysis and 
critical inquiries all the data and evidence. Then shall we weigh the 
assertions and conclusions of modern historians, and see what is to 
become of the works of certain writers and critics, particularly those 
who now-a-days dispense with citing authorities for events alleged 
to have occurred centuries ago ; and modestly claim for their eUicu- 
brations the confidence accorded to the Gospel. 

In keeping with those ideas. Barlow urged his friends to i)ave 
the way for such useful and laborious pursuits, by devoting their 
time, their intelligence and their means to the search of original and 
authentic documents. He pressed them to explore the Vatican, the 
Frarii and Marciana, Simancas, La Lonja and the Escorial, the Hank 
of St. George and Uffizi, and bring to light from those famous reposi- 
tories of archives, perhaps only a name, a date or a mere allusion,

but still something which mij^ht enable honest historians to elucidate 
obscure points of our old annals. When once in possession of those 
inestimable elements, there would still remain the task of establish- 
ing the text on a sound basis ; illustrating it with notes and extracts 
from other manuscripts ; and finally exposing in an exact and pre- 
cise statement, bolstered with every proof, the results so dearly 
obtained. " P^ven then," he was wont to say philosophically, "the 
truth will only be relative and of a transitory character, as further 
investigations, or new modes of thought, may impair synthetic con- 
clusions deemed heretofore incontestable ; — and thus it will be to 
the end of time." And he (juoted the mstances of Augustin Thierry, 
Motley, and a number of other conscientious historians. 

Barlow, particularly during the last few years of his life, was 
fond of reading history ; not, however, in those famous compilations 
or didactic works, which set forth pretended conclusive answers to 
every question imaginable, and where political fawning or grandilo- 
(luence, is made to replace a sincere and difficult study of the original 
sources. He much preferred the modest and short dis(|uisitions 
confined to a single event, character or date, but exhibiting initial 
researches, method and acumen. Tolerant as he was, it distressed 
him to see the constant, barefaced repetition of doubtful facts, 
unsupported assertions, and fallacies of long standing, all para- 
phrased, or presented as the unimpeachable results of novel, arduous 
and personal studies, which constitute the woof and warp of so 
many modern works. 

In the hope of curing that malady of our historical writers and 
encyclopedists, which he considered almost as a public calamity, 
Barlow was untiring in his efforts to impress upon students the neces- 
sity of dismissing at the outset every preconceived notion relative 
to the subject 'vhich they proposed to investigate. 

" If you possibly can, commence," said he, " as Descartes did when 
preparing to write his Discourse on Method, by making tabula rasa of 
all previous knowledge regarding the particular point of inquiry. 
Ascend to the fountain-head, wherever it may be ; examine for your- 
self every element with the utmost care, and mark down the cause 

Samuki. L. M. Hari.ow. 



for which you admit or reject it. If in the course of time new 
reasons come to impair the solidity of your synthesis, say why you 
abandon those lirst results^ and fear not the clieap accusation of 

" Above all, do not be dazzled by the ancientness or reputation 
of the annalists and chroniclers from whom you must necessarily 
derive much of the original substance of your historic labors. His- 
torians in ancient times were inferior even to many of our own as 
regards discrimination and veracity. 'i'he fact that they were 
nearer, and sometimes eye-witnesses of the events which they relate, 
is no decisive circumstance in their favor. There is no employee 
to-day in the Medal Rooms of the British Museum, or of the liiblio- 
theque Nationale, who does not know vastly more regarding the 
authentic history of Rome than Livy or Dio Cassius ever did. Yet, 
examine only after your work is finished modem historical and 
geographical compositions, however extolled and presented by their 
authors and friends as perfect models to the rising generation. You 
may then discover curious things. 

" Go straight before you, regardless of consequences ; and with 
no other objective than to get at the truth, so far as our infirm 
nature permits. If the results are at variance with commonly 
received notions or legends, and denied on that sole account, take 
no notice whatever of the objection. But, on the other hand, do 
not seek a priori to upset general beliefs or traditions. Let your 
efforts be prompted by an earnest desire to confirm rather than to 
overturn ; and swerve from the beaten path only when the facts 
compel you to do so. 

" Whatever may be their merits or demerits, your works will 
attract but little attention. Nor can the author, dedicated to that 
class of dry and difficult researches, expect always justice at the hands 
of the rare critics who may feel disposed to notice his writings ; as, 
to be fairly judged, these require an amount of patience, toilsome 
study, and, let it be said, adequate knowledge of the subject, which 
they do not all possess. You may rest assured that the greater the 
competence and impartiality of your adversaries, the gentler will be 
their criticisms. Having probably gone through the same ordeal as 


Samuki, I.. M. Hari.ow. 

yourselves, tlicy cannot but apurcciate the amount of 'abor and 
abnegation involved in such efforts. And yet, who knows ? an 
iniijardonable misprint, a/ put for a /', or a ^ for a/, is perhaps all 
that which during twenty five years and more will ever be noticed, 
here, in that mass of facts and documents which I expect you, and 
every one of you, to discover, elucidate and publish." 

With that good-natured smile which so often played on his lips, 
Barlow rarely failed to complete the friendly admonition by describ- 
ing the trials and kind of reward attending such .sacrifices and 

" Publishers, said he, will invariably and with touching unani- 
mity decline to undertake, at their own cost, the publication of 
works of that character; and no one should blame them for it. On 
general principles, there is no reason why they should stake a single 
dollar on a book whi h few people will read, and fewer still will buy. 
Publishers do not usually set up in business with the hope or for 
the sole purpose of working their way into heaven. Why should 
they be more patriotic than our next-door neighbor, or the man 
across the way ? Business is business ; and if you choose to be 
philanthropic, if you aspire to play the part of a benefactor of man- 
kind, it must be at your own risk and expense. The fact that our 
country justly boasts of numberless geographical and historical 
societies, colleges and universities, besides five thousand three hun- 
dred and thirty-eight public libraries, many of them munificently 
endowed, while the rest could doubtless afford to invest a small 
sum in that kind of American histories, does not alter materially the 
aspect of the case. In this utilitarian age, public libraries are insti- 
tuted to dispense only such books as may amuse or prove interest- 
ing to the majority of readers. Now, who takes a serious interest 
in the controverted questions where Columbus, Vespuccius, Pinzon, 
John Cabot, Diego de Lepe or Corte Reals actually went, under 
what circumstances, and in the details of their discoveries ; 
whether Verrazzano, Gomez, or unknown Spanish and Portuguese 
navigators long before them, first landed on our shores, and left 
traces of their explorations ? Where is the reader for the laborious 
analysis of maps and documents, all sifted with unremitting perse- 

SaMI'I I. I,. M. I'.AKI.OW. 


verance to ascertain the real purport of every name, word and carto- 
>;raphical assertion, to discover the origin of the nomenchitiire anil 
configurations in the earliest charts, and to establish a solid basis for 
further enipiiries and descriptions? How many, in fine, care for 
those and a multitude of other primary facts of paramount import- 
ance for the geograpiiy, history and ethnography of the New World ? 
They are '"ew aiul far between. 

" What, you lift up your eyes, and already assume the attitude 
of a victim ! But, writing books, even on American bibliography, 
is not an apostolic mission. Nor will the earth cease to revolve on 
its axis though you should never pen a line on the subject. If you 
do not fiiul within yourself the recompense you think is due to such 
efforts, or cannot afford to write history neither for fame nor money, 
then turn at once your attention to some other pursuit. 

" Yet, the work needs be accom|)lished; and even if there is, 
from the St. Lawrence to the Gulf of Mexico, only one of our fellow- 
beings who longs to know the truth regarding the discovery and 
historical commencements of the New World, the book should be 
written. Nry, if no publishing house, at home or abroad, cares to 
have it printed, and you have the means or can borrow the money, 
defray yourself the expenses of publication, and launch your work 
into the community. Not one tenth of the edition, however limited, 
will find purchasers, while the rest will be left to mould away and 
disappear. Do not be discouraged. If a single copy survives, and 
the book has been honestly written, time will instill into its discarded 
pages new elements of life, and perhaps elicit from some candid and 
diligent student of history a recognition of your efforts and sacri- 

Mr. Barlow made ^le proselyte; and although, thus far, only his 
inauspicious warnings have proved true, the task will be continued 
to the last.

Nkw York. i 

The compiler of this catalogue is under some obligation to 
explain apparent discrepancies in at least one item contained in its 
pages. 'I'he recent discovery of two editions of the Spanish text of 
the Columbus Letter, a discovery only verified since page 8i was 
printed, will alter the statement there made, even though it lends 
additional interest to the subject itself. 

The chief care of the writer has been to elaborate defects, 
rather than enlarge on the quality of items that well deserve a 
more eulogistic description, and the only blemish that has come to 
light not hitherto explained, is that part of the last leaf in No. 
636 is one of Pilinski's marvelous fac-similes. 

The labor-saving but treacherous element of scissors and paste, 
has caused a few errors so obvious as to need no correction, but 
the care taken by the printer has prevented far less than the usual 
typographical blunders. 

Mr. Harrisse has, on invitation, kind'y supplied some pages, 
only possible from his virile pen and his intimate knowledge of the 
subject in hand. 

Should the reader fail to appreciate the alphabetical arrange- 
ment of these pages, if he fails to find De Bry under B, for example, 
his inventive faculty will be at fault; and if the famous subject of a 
memoir ha: been chosen, rather than the less famous author, it must 
certainly offer the easiest reference.

Ihu Murphy copy. 

This early edition of the Relation is of the greatest rarity. 

The journey of C'a!je(,a de \'aca across the entire continent from the Peninsula 
of l''iorida to the (inaloa on the Pacific, 1528 to 1537, and thence to the City of 
Mexico, is one of the most remarkal)le on record, and ranks in importance with 
that of Marco Polo in the East in the thirteenth century. 

The narration of the unfortunate expedition of Cal)e(,'a de Vega across the 
territory now occupied by the Southern States from Florida to Texas, in the 
year 1527, is full of the most melancholy yet absorbing interest. Nine years 
of wanderings and captivity among the Indians elapsed before this ill-fated 
member of a still more unfortunate band escaped almost alone of all who set 
out so joyously with him."— T. \V. Fikik.

No copy of the original Spanish letter has yet been found, either in manuscript 
or printed, so that this Latin translation by Leander de C'osio takes precedence. 
It is fairly established to be printed in the types of Stephen Planck of Rome 
though siite anno atit loco. Harrisse, certainly the best authority on this subject, 
has accorded this particular impression the place of honor, and as a copy, now in 
(iermany, is held at the price of three thousand dollars, there seems to be little 
doubt that this is valued as the iditio princeps. A perfect translation can be 
found in Major's "Select Letters of Columbus." one of the publications of the 
Ilakluyt Society.

is easily decided by an analysis of the sails ; though the peculiar rig of the stern 
ship might easily lead to the mistake of placing a third hull beneath the fore- 
sail of the second.

Second ami best edition ; at least, so considered, because of the additional 
chapter (212) at the end, wiiich hatl not previously api)eared, and whicii con- 
tains an account of the signs and marvels which had been seen by the Indians 
before the arrival of the Spaniards. This chapter, <7 ultimo d,l I'n^/mtt, had 
been omitted \>y the editor when lirst printing the narrative, as one containing mat- 
ters of whicli the author could not say, as of all the rest, i/norttm pars indf^na fiii. 
The two eilitions, which are really distinct publications, and not merely two issues 
of one, are generajly said to have been printed in the same year.

Tiiis second edition contains a map whicli is not in the first. The map is 
entitled " Nova Helgica, sive Nieuw Nederlandt," and is copied from the rare 
map of N. J. Vischer. See Asher's list of the " Maps and Charts of N. Nether- 
land." p. 12, Article 9. The "Conditien " is wantinji^. 

" A very large part of this rare work is devoted to a description of the n.itivcs 
of the New Netherlands. \'an dev Donck anived in New Amsterdam in 1(142. 
He served as the Sheriff of the colony uf Rennsclaerwyck. and purchased an 
estate on the Hudson, near the site of ihe village of ^'onkers. " A tlivision of the 
work before us, found on page 52, is entitled, "Of the Manners and peculiar 
Customs of the Natives of the New-Netherlands." This is subdivided into 
twenty-two sections, each treating of some of the peculiarities of the savages of 
the State of New York. The treatise possesses an interest beyond its rarity, in 
being the relation of an educated man regarding the Indians of the island and 
neighborhood of New Vork. The work was translated by tJen. J. Johnson, and 
printed in the sixth volume of the New A'ork Historical Society." — I'li-i.n.

" (iomara's historical merit is cimsi'lcruliie. I lis mode of narration is dear, 
IliiwinK, always ajjreeabje and sometimes elejjant. The cojjies of his hist(jria de 
las Indias and of his Chronica were called in by a decree of the Council of the 
Inilies, and were loti^ considered as prohibited books." — K"iii kisun. 

It is a ^jreat historical work, inilisp<.'nsabie to the student of Spanish affairs in 
America after the con(|uest, notwiihstundin^ the charjjes made by Hernal 1 >ia/ 
against (lomara of occasional inaccuracy. The dedication to Charles \'. be^jins 
with these remarkable words: " The ^'reatest event which has happened since the 
creation of the world (leaving aside the incarnation and death of Him who created 
it) is the discovery of the Inilies." 

(iomnra prefixes a curious address to intending translators, warning them to be 
accurate anil to measure the full signitiiance of the pregnant Spanish phrases; 
also, to pay special attention to proper names. lie further declares that he is 
writing the book in Latin, so that the translators may take no trouble in that 
language. His Latin version has never appeared,

Mexico, 1826 

" The statement on the title of ' translated by Chimalpain ' is merely paren- 
thetical. Bustamante when he had in his hands the MS. from which he printed 
the book, supposed it to be an original work by Chimalpain, but afterwards dis- 
covered that this Mexican, who flourished at the beginning of the seventeenth 



ct'tilury. had only rcndcrt'il (lomara's book into his own loiimic. It is nut ik-ar 
from what original Bustamante has published the above volumes; he does not 
appear to have seen the Mexican text and tlicre is nolhiii;j, exiipt a few words in 
ciiapter (>2, to showany connexion between the Spanish puiihcationof Uuslamante 
and the work of C'himalpain. As for the text, it seems rather like a modem int- 
provement of (lomara, than like a fresh translation from the Mexican version. 
However this may be, the editor's notes are copious aiul valuable, 

[It should be stated, indeed, that a MS. professing; to contain the Mexican 
text of Chimalpain's history, but according; to the (lesiri|'ti<>ii ililTerii)|; in its

" Ileckcwelder's narrative is a full and undoubtedly faithful record of all the 
details of the Mission, its wonderful success and its appalling destruction. He was 
able to give a thousand particulars from personal experience, and it is at once an 
interesting story, abounding in veritable incidents; and a valuable history, forti- 
lied by impregnable facts. Forty years of missionary life among the Delaware 
and Shawnese tribes had amply fitted the author to record the facts which fell 
under his own knowledge." — FuiD.

This small, though important work, might, with some reason, be assigned to 
Hessel tlerritsz, its author and compiler, rather than to Henry Hudson, a naira- 
tive of whose third and fourth voyage it contains among other articles. 

Hessel Cierritsz was a contemporary of Hudson — a geogra|jtier, a map maker, 
and a publisher of geographical works. " His labours," writes Asher, " though 



few in number, are of the most genial nalure. Fixing his eyes on the boundaries 
of the known world, he followed with enthusiasm the first rays of light that 
began to penetrate into regions of darkness and mystery, Hudson's chart of the 
fourth voyage was (jerritsz's first publication, and around it grew, in a very 
remarkable manner, the most interesting of the many collections of voyages and 
travels printed in the early part of the sixteenth century." — IIknrv Hudson, ///(•

Thi:: i« the second Latin edition of the so-called Hudson Tract, by Hessel

son in i6()() in which he discovered Hudson River, given as a supplement in sonic 
copies of the first edition of this tract (1612), is here rewritten and 
enlarged and thus made the leading article of the tract. Hut he adds also in the 
sixth subdivision, above mentioned, of the contents, an account of the voyage of 
Jan Mayen, who is referred to in the first edition of the work as then engaged in 
the northern discovery, giving briefly its contents.

The most extraordinary and valuable collection ever made of the ii.irrativo of a 
class r)f men who, two centuries before what we term civilization, hail prostrated 
the forests, explored the vast territories covered by them, recoriled the peculi- 
arities of the natives, and in many instances bestowed upon them the blessinjjs of 
Christianity. These relations, for many years looked upon through the haze of 
sectarian distrust, were lightly esteemed by the students of American history, but 
the more their character and statements were investigated, the more important 
and valuable they appeared. 'I'hey have become the sources from which we must 
draw almost all the historic material of New ^'ork and Canada, during the first 
century and a half of their exploration by Europeans. It was to perpetuate these 
monuments of the e.irly history of Canada that Parliament onlerctl their publica- 
tion in this form." — Field.

The title [as above] gives no correct notion of its contents. It contains a 
History of the Discovery of the East and West Indies by the Spaniards and 
rortiigiiese [or Italians], and is singularly curious, lie attempts to show that 
these '-ountries had previously been visited by the Antients, and exhorts the 
I'Ycncli nation to continue the exploration of new countries. He combats the 
claim of the Spaniards to the exclusive dominion of the Indies, and says the dis- 
covery was made by Italians.

reproductions of the printer's errors of the olden time." — Preface.

Two histories were published of tills voyage. This was intended by the 
author as a vindication of his conduct, he having been accused of piracy and 
etnbez/lement. Tiie ottier was written by William Itetagh, wiio was nm^'hly 
treated in Shelvocke's narrative, and, in return, wrote with the design i<( 
exposing Shelvocke. 

The author's relation of the discovery of gold is remarkable, '•'i'he soil 
about Puerto .Seguro (and very likely in most parts of the valleys) is a rich bla;:!- 
mould, which, as you turn it up fresh to the sun appears as if intermingled with 
gold dust, some of which we endeavored to wash and purify from the dust: but 
though we weie a little prejudiced against the thoughts that it could be possible 
that this metal should be so promiscuously and universally mingled with common 
earth, yet we endeavored to cleanse and wash the earth from some of it, and the 
more we did, the more it appeared like gold; but in order to be further satislied. 
I brought away some of it, which we lost in our confusions in China." — Pnt^ii

"One f)f the principal causes of the hostility of the I'ennsylvania Indians was 
the wii'keil craft pracliced upon them by (Governor Thomas I'enn, anil other 
priiprietors in 1737. Certain chiefs haviiijj been called togetiier by the specul.i- 
tors, two persons were found to testify that they were present at a council fifty 
years before, at which as nuich land was ceded to William I'enn as a man could 
walk arounii in a day and a half. There was a chief livinjijwho could have proved 
this .testimony false, but he was carefully kept in ignor.mce of the council, and 
b\' mean fraud, endless perjury, and teniplinjr but specious gifts, the surrepti- 
tious deed was rati tied. To locate as large a territory as possible, a trained 
jiedestrian was employed, who was met at appointed stations by refreshments, 
anil thus was enabieil to traverse a route which cut o(T a million acres from the 
Indian teiritory. Less than one-third that quantity of land was the amount 
which the Indians had been led to expect would be ceded. Endless conferences,

Excessively rare. The volume contains an original account of the first three 
voyages of (lojumhus and the account of Vespucci's third voyage, written by him- 
self and first published in l.atin in the year 1504, the only voyage made by him 
of which there is any account coming from his hands, unless the account of the 
four voyages in the Cosmographio Tntroductio, also published in 1507, be con- 
sidered, as it claims to be his work. Vasca de Gama's first voy.igc. The voyage 
of Cabral and Pascjualigi's account of Caspar Cortereal's first voyage are also 
found in this, the first collection of voyages extant. 

It was republished in isiyand 1521. The latter is said to have some additions.

Together 3 parts (the complete series) in i vol., folio, half 
morocco, gilt top, uncut edges. Lima, &c., 1865-69-70 

These valuable publications, which are the entire result of \'arnhagen's studies 
on Vespucci, contain all the letters of Vespucci, both authentic and doubtful, 
exactly reproduced from the originals. These are illustrated with literary and 
bibliographical notes, a critical analysis of his life, extracts from rare books and 
unpublished documents, &c. ; which the editor, as an influential and indefatigable 
scholar, had favorable opportunities of examining. The concern of the modern 
world is with the priority of Vespucci as a navigator in American waters, and the 
origin of the name given to the New World, and everything necessary for any one 
who wishes to examine the matter thoroughly will be found in Varnhagen's treat- 
ises, by which it appears conclusive that Vespucci saw the American continent in 
1497-8, in that First Voyage which has been discredited. In fact these disquisi- 
tions render completely useless, and supersede almost all previous studies upon 
Americus Vesputius.

the gdVf'rnnient by his conduct there, and was obliged to fly from France, and 
spend the lomaindcr of his life in other countries. These circumstances render 
it almost certain that he was the author of the Paper. And hi'-, exile will account

2763 This famous collection of over 1,000 Lktters, Petitions, &c., 
for the most part addressed to William Livingston, while he held 
the position of Governor of New Jersey, is generally of an official 
character, the earliest 1775, the latest 1782, though (lov. Livingston 
held his office for 14 years. While it will be impossible in these pages 
to give anything approaching an adequate idea of the value of this 
collection, the following list selected from some of the more 
important papers, will at least form a clue to their importance. 
The whole carefully mounted and bound in 8 folio volumes, half 
russia (in a wooden case), including a complete Index and Digest 
of the whole. 

Laight (William), London, England, Oct. 3, 1775, to John Jay. 

" Many who say . . . They can no longer advocate the cause [of America] 
. . . Many . . . hesitate not to declare that the Americans are in a state of 
Rebellion, & that the most coercive measures ought to be pursued . . . 
others . . . speak in favor of America . . . but . . . declare, that while the 
Colonies are protected by & remain a part of this Kingdom, they ought to 
contribute in a constitutional manner, their proportion of the e.xpenses of the 
Empire . . . The Riches, Strength & Grandeur of this Island, has not I am 
afraid been sufficiently attended to, by the Leaders of the opposition in America 
. . . For well I am convinced that if its Power should be exerted against our 
native Country, that universal desolation must inevitably be the unhap'iy Con-

" My dear Polly" [his wife] " But America is, by no means the Country,

ence is established the Church with the Monarchy will be destrnyed, and Repub- 
licanism with Presbyterianism its Brat erected on their ruins." 

The Reverend Centleman concludes with other ill digested and virulent 
matter, more forcible than elegant, and if "dear Polly" read between the 
lines, the chances are that she declined to be re-united. 
Van ni-.R, Amsterdam, 6 July, 1779.

English translation attached.
