Discoveries in Australia; with an account of: STOKES, J. Lort

About this Item: Libraries Board of South Australia, 1969., Adelaide:, 1969. Series: Australia Facsimile edition, no. 33. 2 volumes. 8vo. [ii], xii, [4], 521, [1]; [ii], viii, [2], 543, [1] pp. Figures, plates, folding maps. Blue gilt-stamped leatherette. Edges show foxing. Very good. Limited edition about 800 copies, being a facsimile of the London 1846 edition. "John Lort Stokes (1812-1885), explorer and hydrographer, was the son of Henry Stokes. He entered the navy in the Prince Regent in 1824 and was soon transferred to the brig Beagle, in which he served for eighteen years, becoming midshipman in 1825, mate and assistant surveyor in 1831, lieutenant in 1837 and commander in 1841. After marine surveys of South America in 1826-32 and the voyage around the world described by Charles Darwin in 1833-36, the Beagle was sent under Commander John Wickham to survey Australian waters, arriving in December 1837. During the survey of the Timor Sea in 1839 Stokes was several times entrusted with the closer examination of what is now the Northern Territory coast. He was the first to discover and name the Victoria River and Port Darwin, commemorating his old shipmate. While examining Point Pearce in December 1839 Stokes was speared in the shoulder by Aboriginals, but recovered from his wound and in March 1841 succeeded Wickham in command of the Beagle. Between June and August of that year he surveyed part of the Gulf of Carpentaria, indulging whenever possible 'the exquisite enjoyment of discovery' by making excursions inland. He named the Flinders and Albert Rivers, and between them the Plains of Promise, whose pleasing appearance prompted him to foretell the spread of 'many christian hamlets' throughout the area. Stokes had not allowed for the fluctuation in northern seasons, and 120 years later the area was still largely unoccupied but for cattle stations. A later piece of prophecy was no more fortunate. In December 1841, while the Beagle was off the coast of Western Australia, Stokes was requested to inspect Port Grey, a site proposed for the Australind settlement on the basis of enthusiastic reports by Captain (Sir) George Grey. Arriving in midsummer, Stokes was not impressed, and the Western Australian Co. accordingly decided to retain the site near Bunbury originally proposed for its settlement. Within ten years the Port Grey-Champion Bay area was settled and later became one of the earliest successful wheat-growing areas in Western Australia. Stokes's doubtful judgment as a land explorer could not obscure his merits as a marine surveyor. Many of the hydrographic maps prepared by Wickham and Stokes during their North Australian cruises, and later while Stokes was examining Bass Strait in 1842, were still in use during World War II. After returning to England he published in two volumes Discoveries in Australia (London, 1846). He rose high in the service of the Admiralty, ending as admiral on the retired list in 1877. He spent his retirement on an estate at Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, and died on 11 June 1885. An enterprising and efficient officer, Stokes was a man of genial personality, with considerable ability as a vivacious writer." â€" G.C. Bolton, for the Australian Dictionary of Biography, Volume 2, (MUP), 1967. See: Ferguson 4406 [1846 first edition]. Seller Inventory # LV2291

About this Item: T. & W. Boone, London, 1846. Two volumes, octavo, with 26 plates and eight folding charts (six of them tipped into pockets of the binding, as issued); bound without the Sibourne advertisements at front of vol. II, but with both of the fragile advertising slips ('South Australia and its Mines' & 'Eyre's Journal');a fine copy in the original ribbed blue-green cloth with kangaroo and emu vignettes in gilt on spines. First edition: a handsome copy in original binding of the Beagle's great Australian survey voyage, often considered the last major voyage of Australian discovery. This work recounts the third and final circumnavigation of HMS Beagle from 1837 to 1843 under Wickham and Stokes, when the ship was in Australian waters, having been dispatched by the Admiralty to complete the mapping of the remote coasts of New Holland, in particular the north-west coast and the Torres Strait.John Lort Stokes, who joined the Beagle in 1824, served on her for eighteen years, on all three circumnavigations, working up from a midshipman to be the final commander, a position he was given in Sydney in 1841. He had been the companion, that is, of everyone from Darwin to Phillip Parker King, and was easily the longest-serving officer on the famous ship. From 1837 to 1843 the Beagle was in Australian waters, her personnel completing the survey of the northwest coast, and charting rivers and exploring inland where appropriate. It was Stokes who charted and named Victoria River and Port Darwin, the latter in commemoration of his former shipmate. Stokes' time in command of the Beagle confirmed his reputation as a fine marine surveyor, and many of his charts of the northern Australia coast remained in use for over a century."Stokes is noted as an engaging, vivacious and entertaining writer. As the official account of the last major expedition of Australian discovery, his book is essential to a collection relating to coastal voyages. It is also of considerable interest to collectors of inland exploration journals, since Stokes and the crew of the Beagle undertook many expeditions inland from the coast which are recorded in his book. It is a scarce book and is eagerly sought by collectors?" (Wantrup). Provenance: Private collection (Australia). A couple of light spots but a really good copy in original binding, with just a few mild abrasions around spines. Seller Inventory # 4504310
