23 The MEMORIALS of the English and French commissaries con- 1755. cerning St. Lucia.

London.
Quarto.
By the titles, these two articles would appear to be distinct works, but they

are distinguished at the bottom of the pages as volumes one and two.

Prefixed to the first is the following
“ADVERTISEMENT. Some of the memorials which have been respectively

delivered by the English and French commissaries, concerning the limits
of Acadia or Nova Scotia, and the right to St. Lucia, having been printed
at Paris, it has been thought necessary to print at London this edition
of all the memorials upon these points, in the same form in which they

were delivered.”
24 Memoires des commissaires du Roi et de ceux de sa Majesté

Britannique, sur les possessions et les droits respectifs des
deux couronnes en Amérique ; avec les actes publics et pièces
justificatives. Tome premier, contenant les memoires sur
l'Acadie et sur l'Isle de Sainte Lucie.

Tome second, contenant les traités et actes publics
concernant l'Amerique en général, et les pièces justificatives
des memoires sur les limites de l'Acadie.

Tome troisiéme contenant les pièces justificatives concernant la propriété de l'isle de Sainte Lucie.

Tome quatrième, contenant les derniers mémoires
sur l'Acadie, et un mémoire des commissaires du Roi sur l'isle
de Tobago.

Paris.
Quarto, 4 vols.
The fourth volume was printed in 1757, and is seldom found with the other

three. The Rev. Dr. Holmes, in the second edition of bis Annals of
America, the most perfect work of the kind ever published, calls this

“ an invaluable collection of official papers and documents.”
The authors of these memoirs were M. M. de Silhouette, de la Galissonière,

and particularly the Abbé de la Ville, an ex-jesuit. Barbier. An edition,

in 8 vols. 12mo, was printed in 1756. 25 *Memoires Des Commissaire de sa majesté très Chretiennes

original was by Jefferys, and that the notes were written by Butel-Du

“Ex nova typographia in ædibus authoris editioni ejusdem bibliotheca

destinata.” It is unfortunate that no more of this important work was
published. It is probable that not many copies were printed of this

volume, as it is not often met with.

Folio. pp. 262. 262 plates.

Amsterdam. These plates are executed with tolerable, but by no means infallible ac

curacy, being far inferior in neatness and correctness to what Plumier
himself published. The well-meaning editor bas overloaded the book
with descriptions of his own, necessarily made from the figures, and
therefore entirely superfluous. They are indeed not unfrequently founded
in misapprehension; nor has he been very bappy in the adaptation of his
materials to Linnæan names and principles.” Sir J. E. Smith.

MDCCLVI.
I A FAIR REPRESENTATion of his Majesty's right to Nova Scotia,

or Acadie. Briefly stated from the memorials of the English
commissaries; with an answer to the objections contained in
the French memorials, and in a treatise entitled Discussion

sommaire sur les anciennes limites de l'Acadie. London.
8vo. pp. 64.
The French commissaries having, besides their voluminous mémoires, pub-

lished a pamphlet, “in order to prejudice all the courts of Europe in
favour of their unjustifiable pretensions,” the English commissaries
thought proper, “ to obviate the wrong impressions that these might
create, briefly to recapitulate what had been offered in support of H.M.'s

claim, collected from the English memorials.
2 ALL THE MEMORIALS of the courts of Great Britain and France,

since the peace of Aix la Chapelle, relative to the limits of
the territories of both crowns in North America, and the right
to the neutral islands in the West Indies. To which are an-
nexed, two maps, one delineating the right of Great Britain,
and the other the claim of France. The French memorials

are translated, and the whole is printed in English.
