Most widely held works by Samuel John Neele
Travels through the states of North America, and the provinces of Upper and Lower Canada, during the years 1795, 1796, and 1797 by Isaac Weld( )

6 editions published between 1799 and 1807 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During a little over two years in America, Weld was often guided by Indians in his explorations of the vast forests and great rivers. But as a gentleman traveller he mixed in the best society while in the towns and met George Washington. His descriptions were influential because they were relatively early and were long included in compilations of travellers' reports on the United States despite his general lack of sympathy with the American patriots. In 1795, Weld found himself distressed with the conditions in Europe and set out on a fact-finding mission to North America to ascertain whether in case of future emergency, any part of those territories might be looked forward to, as an eligible and agreeable place of abode. He traveled through the states of Pennsylvania, Delware, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, and New York. He then traveled to Montreal and Quebec along the St. Lawrence to Kingston and Niagara
Travels in China, containing descriptions, observations, and comparisons, made and collected in the course of a short residence at the imperial palace of Yuen-min-yuen, and on a subsequent journey through the country from Pekin to Canton by John Barrow( Book )

1 edition published in 1804 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1792, a British embassy headed by Earl Macartney travelled from Peking (Beijing), China, to Canton (Guangzou) with the aim of improving trade with China. The complete account of the mission was recorded by the Earl's private secretary, Sir John Barrow, in Travels in China (1804), a work intended to 'shew this extraordinary people in their proper colours' as well as to 'divest the court of the tinsel and tawdry varish' which Barrow thought that missionary accounts promoted. Both a paean to British imperial ambitions and a compelling example of early nineteenth-century travel literature, Travels in China presents an account of Chinese government, trade, industry, and cultural and religious practices through the eyes of one of England's most ardent expansionists. Barrow would go on to write an account of the mutiny on H.M.S. Bounty (1831), but Travels in China remained by far the more significant work in his lifetime

4 editions published in 1807 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A voyage to South America : describing at large, the Spanish cities, towns, provinces, &c. on that extensive continent : interspersed throughout with reflexions on whatever is peculiar in the religion and civil policy : in the genius, customs, manners, dress, &c. &c. of the several inhabitants : whether natives, Spaniards, creoles, Indians, mulattoes, or negroes : together with the natural as well as commercial history of the country : and an account of their gold and silver mines by Antonio de Ulloa( Book )

1 edition published in 1807 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antonio de Ulloa (1716-95) was a Spanish scientist and mathematician. In 1734 he was asked by Philip V of Spain to join the French geodesic expedition to measure the circumference of the Earth at the equator, and accordingly in 1735 Ulloa and his fellow scientist Jorge Juan y Santacilia (1713-73) travelled to South America, staying until 1744. These two volumes contain the English translation of Ulloa's account of South America, first published in 1758. The work was very popular, producing five subsequent editions: this reissue is of the fourth edition of 1806. It provides valuable insights into the social, religious and economic institutions of colonial South America. Volume I contains detailed descriptions of the cities of Carthagena, Panama and Quito and their provinces, including historical, economic and geographical accounts of the cities, together with an ethnological discussion of the indigenous people of Quito
