About this title


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.
