A NARRATIVE OF THE LOSS OF THE GROSVENOR East Indiaman, which was unfortunately wrecked upon the coast of Caffraria, somewhere between the 27th and 32d Degrees of Southern latitude, on the 4th of August, 1782, compiled from the examination of John Hynes, one of the Unfortunate Survivors. By Mr. George Carter, Historical Portrait Painter upon his passage outward bound to India. Containing a Variety of Matter respecting the Sufferers, Never before made Public; With Copper Plates descriptive of the Catastrophe, engraved from Mr. Carter's designs.
London: At the Minerva Press for J, Murray… and William Lane, 1791. , 174 pages. Illustrated with a folding engraved frontispiece, and 3 other engraved plates. Original boards crudely re-backed with sheep. Octavo. First edition. This is a rather sad copy. The corners have been trimmed, presumably where once turned down; there is soiling throughout; one of the plates has a piece missing from the blank outer margin; the frontispiece is splitting along one fold, and has been crudely re-attached to the title. A complete, but poor copy, of a rare book.
