This classic set of three volumes in four books plus portfolio, edited from the original manuscripts, provides for the first time a complete, reliable and authoritative text of Cook's account of his voyages of discovery. Published over many years, complete sets of previous edition shave been hard to come by. This reissue makes more widely available to historians a vast range of material relating to all aspects of 18th-century scientific advances.
The volumes contain Cook's accounts of his three great voyages in the Endeavour and the Resolution; introductions and detailed notes accompany the texts, and extracts from the journals of Cook's shipmates are printed as appendices. A separate portfolio contains the manuscript charts and views drawn by Cook and his officers, which he regarded as an essential complement to his Journals.
