9780715630860: The Great Navigators of the Eighteenth Century (Duckworth Discoverers)

Casting a visionary eye over the 18th century, Jules Verne traces navigation to the first astronomers and cartographers in this monumental history of early expeditions. Assessing the influence of Captain Cook and his predecessors in the first part of the book, he then introduces the reader to the remarkable efforts of French navigators across the globe in a gripping narrative.

About the Author:

Jules Gabriel Verne (8 February 1828 – 24 March 1905) was a French writer who pioneered the science fiction genre. Notable amongst his works are "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea", "Around the World in 80 Days" and "A Journey to the Centre of the Earth".

From Library Journal:

These are the first four titles in Duckworth's new "Discoverers" series, which will reprint the travel writings of popular authors. Doyle's volume tells of his stay in Rhodesia and Kenya in 1928. Before travelling to Africa, Stanley made extensive journeys through the Unites States and Asia, which he recounts here. Livingstone recalls his search for the source of the Zambesi River, while Verne documents early expeditions. Some of these volumes include period illustrations.
