Notes Contains, after preface, four parts with separate titlepages or drop-head titles reading: 'Two voyages made in 1698, 1699 and 1700 by Dr. Edmund Halley', 'Extrait du voyage fait aux Terres Australes, les anńees 1738 & 1739, par Mr. Des Loziers Bouvet' , 'Extrait d'un journal de navigation pour un voyage de la Mer du Sud, fait par le S. Ducloz Guyot de St Malo' , and 'Journal of the winds and weather, and degrees of heat and cold by the thermometer, at Falkland Islands'.
The four separate parts printed in or before 1775 (evidence from the preface).
Advertisement in 'Two voyages' implies publication of that part in 1773, but the preface to the collection indicates 1775 as the true date of first publication of that part. -.
'Extrait du voyage fait aux Terres Australes' printed in France; 'Extrait d'un journal de navigation' printed in Scotland, probably by Murray & Cochran in Edinburgh.
Titlepages of 'Two voyages' and 'Extrait d'un journal de navigation' printed in Scotland, use a fount of type very similar to that used for the roughly contemporaneous issue by Dalrymple of the memorial 'Senor' by Arias , the colophon of which specifies Murray & Cochran of Edinburgh as printers.
With a half-title.
