A rare enormous set of La Harpe’s ‘General History of Voyages’! This extensive work was begun by La Harpe, and, after the first 21 volumes, was completed by several other historians.

According to Sabin, La Harpe’s ‘Voyages’ is

“a work that has met with greater success than any other of the same kind; the fidelity of the narration, the striking details of adventures, and the lively pictures of manners, etc., it presents, will always give it a peculiar and lasting merit. Contains all the early voyages of America.

 

This set complete 32-volume set is an impressive work, filled with nearly 100 full-page engraved plates and covers the voyages of the most iconic voyagers: Magellan, Byron, Cook, and others; voyages in China, Peru, and all over the world!
