[BRAZIL] GARDNER, GEORGE. Travels in the Interior of Brazil, principally Through The Northern provinces and the gold and diamond districts.
London: Reeve, Brothers, 1846. First edition. Publisher's purple cloth in modern slipcase. 8 3/4 x 5 1/2 inches (22 x 14 cm) ; xvi, 562, 16 pp. ads; lithographed map, one lithographed plate (frontispiece). Binding very slightly rubbed. With the bookplate of John Borthwick, the Brooke-Hitching copy.
"Gardner arrived in Brazil in 1836 and remained there until 1841. He spent two years in Rio and the neighbourhood, afterwards travelling to Pernambuco via Bahia, then beginning his long journey through the 'sertoes' of Ceará, Piauhi, Goyaz and Minas Geraes and returning to Rio. The great importance of his travels lies in the descriptions he gives of a region until then entirely unknown to European travellers. His book compares with the best of published works on the subject" --Borba de Moraes p. 346.
