This collection, generally known as Astley's, the publisher, was intended to

have been much more extensive, but apparently did not receive sufficient
patronage. It was originally published in weekly numbers, and gave rise
to the collection of the Abbé Prevost, the first seven volumes of which
are a translation of these four. They relate almost entirely to Africa

and Asia.

M. de la Condamine was detained more than two months after his arrival in

Holland, waiting for passports to enable him to proceed to Paris. In
this interval he employed himself in translating his journal into Spanish,
to send to his friends in America; for which purpose he caused the ne-

cessary nnmber of copies to be printed, and no more.

raccolte e illustrate dall'abate Angelo Maria Bandini. Quarto, pp. 76 and 128.



Bandini's life of Vesputius is a mere panegyric throughout. He does not

hesitate to call him the discoverer of America, which he makes him appear to bave been, from the dates he gives of his two first voyages. But the Spanish writers have proved that these dates are incorrect; and that the first of these voyages, if made at all, must have been in 1499 instead of 1497. But even if Bandini's dates were correct, all that could be said about it would be, that Vesputius had followed a track which Columbus had pointed out.
