First Edition. Disbound. Very Good. Item #038252

Disbound from a larger volume but still sewn together - lacking endpapers with slight browning to title page, punctures in gutter, probably from an earlier string binding, but otherwise bright and unmarked.

The English language edition of the French language original containing the diplomatic correspondence with a connecting narrative by Etienne François relative to ending the Seven Years War. A seminal document in the History of the Americas as the diplomacy involved the ultimate disposition of Canada, Louisiana, the fisheries off Newfoundland, Cape Breton, Guadalupe, much of the West Indies, etc.

The English edition is considerably scarcer than the French though it was printed in a number of editions in 1761 (two in London, a 4to and this one, as well as 3 in Dublin - no priority is suggested).
