(Sabin 17278) (Howes C825)

This scarce collection of three works united under one title was compiled by Daniel Coxe, the highlight being Part III, A Description of the English Province of Carolana; one of the first English works to describe the Southern United States. Coxe boldly asserted the English rights to control of the entire gulf region of the southern colonies, against competing claims by the French and Spanish. Coxe draws on his 14 years exploring the southeastern United States; all the lands claimed by his father in his time as Proprietor under the Crown. The other two parts of this work include: The Dangerous Voyage of Capt. Thomas James (1740) and An Authentick and Particular Account of the Taking of Carthagena by the French, in the Year 1697, by Jean-Bernard-Louis Desjean.
