Travels through the states of North America and the provinces of Upper & Lower Canada during the years 1795, 1796 & 1797 by Isaac Weld( )

5 editions published between 1799 and 1800 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During a little over two years in America, Weld was often guided by Indians in his explorations of the vast forests and great rivers. But as a gentleman traveler he mixed in the best society while in the towns and met George Washington. His descriptions were influential because they were relatively early and were long included in compilations of travelers' reports on the United States despite his general lack of sympathy with the American patriots. In 1795, Weld found himself distressed with the conditions in Europe and set out on a fact-finding mission to North America to ascertain whether in case of future emergency, any part of those territories might be looked forward to, as an eligible and agreeable place of abode. He traveled through the states of Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, and New York. He then traveled to Montreal and Quebec along the St. Lawrence to Kingston and Niagara
A voyage of discovery to the North Pacific ocean and round the world : in which the coast of north-west America has been carefully examined and accurately surveyed ; undertaken by His Majesty's command principally with a view to ascertain the existence of any navigable communication between the North Pacific and North Atlantic oceans; and performed in the years 1790, 1791, 1792, 1793, 1794 and 1795, in the Discovery sloop of war, and armed tender Chatham, under the command of Captain George Vancouver ... in six volumes by George Vancouver( Book )

2 editions published in 1801 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first octavo edition is now almost as rare as the first edition, and has the advantage of including the definitive, corrected version of the text. The account was completed by George Vancouver's brother John, assisted by Captain Peter Puget, George having died before the work was finished. Vancouver's account of his voyage was first published in 1798 in 4 volumes (3 volumes of quarto text and 1 folio atlas volume). The text contained 1 engraved chart and 17 engraved plates, the atlas volume 10 folding engraved charts and 6 engraved plates of coastal profiles. For the present octavo edition, corrections were made to the text, and all 17 plates from the text volumes were reprinted using the original printing plates. There are only two folding charts included because the printing plates for the chart from the first edition text volumes, and the charts and plates in the first edition atlas were lost, and the decision was made to re-engrave only two charts."--Sotheby's website

Travels in China, containing descriptions, observations, and comparisons, made and collected in the course of a short residence at the imperial palace of Yuen-min-yuen, and on a subsequent journey through the country from Pekin to Canton by John Barrow( Book )

1 edition published in 1804 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1792, a British embassy headed by Earl Macartney travelled from Peking (Beijing), China, to Canton (Guangzou) with the aim of improving trade with China. The complete account of the mission was recorded by the Earl's private secretary, Sir John Barrow, in Travels in China (1804), a work intended to 'shew this extraordinary people in their proper colours' as well as to 'divest the court of the tinsel and tawdry varish' which Barrow thought that missionary accounts promoted. Both a paean to British imperial ambitions and a compelling example of early nineteenth-century travel literature, Travels in China presents an account of Chinese government, trade, industry, and cultural and religious practices through the eyes of one of England's most ardent expansionists. Barrow would go on to write an account of the mutiny on H.M.S. Bounty (1831), but Travels in China remained by far the more significant work in his lifetime
