About this Item

New Zealand: Avon Fine Prints Ltd., 1969. Oblong folio measuring 12-1/2 by 18 inches. Handsomely bound in half black leather and blue linen, enclosed in a slip case covered in blue linen. 165 pages, copiously illustrated. Slip case is a little scuffed and faded, but the book itself is like new. The collection of paintings and drawings collected together in this volume have never before been seen as a group, not even in Cook's day. The work covers each of Cook's three voyages, giving brief biographies of the artists, a brief synopsis of each voyage, reproductions of the original drawings and engravings produced during each voyage, and a detailed description of each plate. A valuable work that shows for the first time in a really comprehensive way the flora, fauna, scenery, and people of the South Pacific just as they appeared to these intrepid English explorers in the eighteenth century.
