Folio, pp. 474.


Reprinted in 1786. Salazar's continuation of Solis has neither the beauty of style and language of the latter, nor any redeeming merit as a historical composition. The language is ridiculously inflated and bombastic. The editor of the second edition acknowledges the inferiority of the work, but alleges as an apology for reprinting it the want of something better to complete the work of Solis.

MIDDLETON'S DEFENCE: wherein his conduct, during his late voyage for discovering a passage from Hudson's Bay to the South Sea, is impartially examined; his neglects and omissions in that affair fully proved; the falsities and evasions in his defence exposed; the errors of his charts laid open, and his accounts of currents, streights and rivers, confuted: whereby it will appear, with the highest probability, that there is such a passage as he went in search of. With an appendix of original papers, and a map of the in-land and sea-coast of North America in and about Hudson's Bay. By Arthur Dobbs, esq. London.
