Notes: An Advertisement at the beginning speaks of 'the first twenty volumes of Voyages and Travels', this being Mavor's Historical Account of the most celebrated Voyages, 1797-1801. Of this series, this is vol. XXV, here re-issued with the Minerva Press title-page. The verso of the last leaf has the tell-tale direction to the binder, requesting him 'not to beat the five Supplementary Volumes, being but very recently printed, and the ink not sufficiently dry.'
