About this Item: , 1772-75, 1776-80 Being Used by Authors in the Description of New Species, 1968. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. A fascinating work published as a celebration of the bicentenary of James Cook's first voyage to the pacific. This work displays the drawings by artists accompanying Cook on three separate voyages to the pacific. These drawings allowed Europeans to study the animals for the first time. With the accompanying text written by PJP Whitehead, a renowned scholar in natural history and zoology. Whitehead was affiliated with several notable institutions such as the Natural History Museum and the British Museum. The preface of this work is by Landsborough Thomson and to this he notes that while the birds and plants from the Cook voyages have been studies, the fishes 'have received rather little attention, especially in the last hundred years. ' This work is intended as a tribute to the considerable skill and industry of the artists. Collated, appears to be lacking/has been bound without plates 35 and 36. Condition: In the original full cloth binding and held in original unclipped vellum paper dustwrapper. Externally, excellent with minor shelfwear. Dustwrapper is very smart with minor bumping to the head and tail of spine. Small holes to the rear joint. Slight sunning to the wraps. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean. Overall Condition: Fine in a Near Fine dustwrapper. Seller Inventory # 055328
