RARE. The second of two accounts of Madagascar by Hamond (see lot 75). The previous work was written as an encouragement to colonise Madagascar, something that was scheduled for 1639. That plan never came to fruition, and this second work was published in support of reviving the idea of colonisation. John Bond led an expedition to the island and established a colony in 1645. It was abandoned the following year after a large death toll.
