le R. P. Joseph François Lafitau, de la Cie. de Jesus. Paris. Quarto, 2 vols. The title of this work is not very appropriate, as it relates almost entirely

to the discoveries and conquests made by the Portuguese in Asia and

Africa. It is, however, an esteemed and well-written work. 8 DESCRIPCION CHOROGRAPHICA del terreno, rios, arboles, y

Alcala, under the form of twenty-four consecrated wafers, which had been
miraculously preserved there, from the year 1595, as white and fresh as
when they were first consecrated.” In the first volume there is an account
of the missions to Canada, and lives of the missionaries sent by the Jesuits

to different parts of America.

London. The author was a surgeon, and somewhat of a philosopher. According to

Watts, this voyage was first printed in 1723, the year in which the author returned from it. An edition, with the date of 1737, is called the second

work, in the Bibliotheque des Voyages, it is stated to be by Nicholas Withington ; and Pinkerton (Collection of Voyages, vol. 17, p. 208,) re-translates the title, and perpetuates the error.

Similar instances are innumerable in the former work, and are all repeated, with additions, in

the latter. 6 A SHORT ACCOUNT of the first settlement of the provinces of

the settlement of Ebenezer in Georgia, was continued from year to year to
1752, forming eighteen parts. Another work on the same subject was
commenced in 1751. The early parts of the present work appear to bave
been reprinted in 1714.
