Item Description: ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Reprinted from 1784 edition. Language: Anglais. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. 502.

A Journal of the Voyage to the: PARKINSON, Sydney.

Item Description: London: Printed for Stanfield Parkinson, the Editor, 1773, 1773. Folio, (332 × 272 mm.) Later mottled calf by Zaehnsdorf, double red morocco labels and date to the tail of the spine, low bands with dotted twist roll, framed by dog-tooth rolls, compartments gilt with large floral centre-tools, triple fillet panel to the boards with cinquefoil corner-tools, double fillet edge-roll, all edges gilt, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers. Skilful restoration to the spine, head and tail and to the joints, light toning, some off-setting as usual, but overall a handsomely presented, clean, and wide-margined copy. Engraved portrait frontispiece after James Newton, 27 other plates depicting scenery, South Sea Islanders and their accoutrements, and the famous image of "Two Natives of New Holland advancing to Combat", and map of New Zealand. First edition. His skill in botanical drawing being noticed at an exhibition of the Free Society of Artists in 17656 Parkinson went to work for James Lee at his nursery in Hammersmith. Commissions from Joseph Banks followed, Parkinson being employed to "depict in water-colours from the preserved material some of the creatures collected on his 1766 expedition to Labrador and Newfoundland, and to make copies for him of paintings of Indian mammals and birds made for Gideon Loten, a former governor of Ceylon." [ODNB] Some of these latter being reproduced in Pennant's Indian Zoology. In 1768 when Banks formed his suite of "scientific gentlemen" to accompany Cook's voyage to the South Seas, Parkinson went as botanical draughtsman. The death at Tahiti of Alexander Buchan, the topographical draughtsman, threw a heavy extra burden on him but he attacked his task with "great flair and diligence," making at least 1300 sketches during the voyage "including the first in Western history of an Australian landscape and of its inhabitants at first hand, as well as compiled vocabularies of the languages spoken in Tahiti and New Holland, by the time the ship called at Batavia for repairs on the voyage home." At Batavia, like many others, Parkinson contracted dysentery and died at sea shortly afterwards. A dispute arose over his papers with his executors being paid £500 for the balance of salary due and for the papers and drawings, which Banks, as his employer, had felt were his property. Parkinson's brother Stanfield had a copy made of the papers whilst they were on loan to him, contrary to his arrangement with Banks, and arranged for publication; ". he was restrained by an injunction from doing so until the official account of the voyage had appeared. A result of the squabble was that although Hawkesworth, who edited [it] used Parkinson's papers and drawings freely he did not acknowledge them" (Dictionary of Australian Biography). The journal contains "much colourful detail not in those kept by Cook and Banks." An excellent copy of this uncommon and important account.

Item Description: Printed for Stanfield Parkinson, London, 1773. Quarto. (12 5/8 x 10 5/8 inches). xxiii,212,[2]pp. Engraved portrait frontispiece of Parkinson by James Newton, 26 engraved plates (1 plate after Alexander Buchan, 2 plates after S.H. Grimm and 24 after Parkinson). Contemporary marbled boards with vellum corners, rebacked in calf, retaining original red morocco lettering piece Large-paper copy of Parkinson's important illustrated account of Cook's first voyage: "Parkinson was engaged by Sir Joseph Banks to accompany him and Captain Cook in the Endeavour to the South Seas, as natural history draughtsman . After exploring Tahiti, New Zealand, Australia, and the Great Barrier Reef, the expedition reached Batavia. On leaving for the Cape of Good Hope, Parkinson succumbed to fever and dysentery and was buried at sea. Banks spoke highly of his 'unbounded industry' in making for him a much larger collection of drawings than he had anticipated. His observations, too, were valuable, and the vocabularies of South Sea languages given in his journals are of great interest. Upon Banks' return to England, Stanfield Parkinson, Sydney's brother, claimed all the drawings made by his brother in his spare hours, as well as journals and collections, under a will made before Sydney Parkinson left England. Following the dispute, his writings were lent to Stanfield Parkinson, who transcribed them and prepared them for publication, but an injunction was obtained . to restrain him from publishing until after the appearance of . Hawkesworth's official account" (Hill). Parkinson's drawings stand as one of the chief visual sources for the voyage: he produced a large number of magnificent botanical, natural history and ethnographical drawings of Tierra del Fuego, Tahiti, New Zealand, and Australia. At the time, these drawings offered Europe its first view of life in the South Pacific. The work contains extensive descriptions of Australia and New Zealand, and is the first work to properly identify the kangaroo by name. A major journal for Cook's first voyage.

Item Description: London: Printed for Stanfield Parkinson, 1773., 1773. xxiii,212,[2]pp. plus twenty-six plates, a map, and an engraved frontispiece portrait. Large quarto. Contemporary marbled boards with vellum corners; expertly rebacked in calf, retaining original leather label. Slight offsetting from some plates, otherwise quite clean, a near fine copy. A large paper copy of this important narrative. Parkinson accompanied Capt. James Cook on his first voyage to the South Pacific and New Zealand, serving as draughtsman under naturalist Joseph Banks. As botanical artist for the Endeavor voyage, Parkinson produced a large number of magnificent botanical and natural history drawings of Tahiti, New Zealand, and Australia. His untimely death near the end of the voyage while en route from Batavia to the Cape of Good Hope resulted in a dispute between his brother, Stanfield, and Banks over ownership of his manuscripts and drawings. When Hawkesworth learned of the impending publication of this work, he sought and received an injunction to prevent its appearance until sometime after the official account was issued. Hawkesworth went so far as to omit mention of Parkinson's name from the official account, and even failed to give him credit for his botanical illustrations. The present work stands as the most attractive of the unofficial accounts of Cook's first voyage. It contains extensive descriptions of Australia and New Zealand, and is the first work to properly identify the kangaroo by name. The handsome plates are from Parkinson's drawings, and they depict natives of Tierra del Fuego, Tahiti, and New Zealand, scenes in Tahiti and New Zealand, and native artifacts. Also included are several vocabularies of South Sea languages. A major journal for Cook's first voyage. BEDDIE 712. BELL P100. STREETER SALE 2406. HILL 1308. DAVIDSON, pp.54-56. HOLMES 7.
