1808 Circa - Printed for Thomas Tegg, London - First Edition Thus
A rare little account, with folding frontispiece engraving depicting Woodard dramatically ‘defending himself from the Treachery of the Malays’. Woodard had sailed in the American ship Enterprise from Batavia (Jakarta) bound for Manila. He and five companions were sent off in small boat to purchase provisions, but found themselves cut off by a storm, finally landing at Celebes where one of them, Archibald Millar, was killed in a fight with the local Malays. Imprisoned by their captors, they finally escaped with the help of a Muslim priest, and made their way back to Batavia. Woodard later recounted the story to William Vaughn who wrote this account.
