The voyage of the Duff, undertaken by the London Missionary Society for the purpose of establishing a mission in Tahiti, became the first such voyage to sail the little-known waters of the Pacific Ocean. "After two hundred and eight days the vessel reached Tahiti, landing seventeen missionaries there, a further twelve at Tonga, and one on the Marquesas. Trouble with the natives arose and three of the missionaries in Tonga were killed. Others were compelled to seek refuge at Sydney. Nevertheless the work was maintained and extended by heroic members of the band as opportunities offered. Several of the missionaries settled in Australia and founded families important to Australian history" - Ferguson. "The account is of extraordinary interest for its fresh and somewhat naive viewpoint, and for its descriptions of customs passed over by the nautical and geographical explorer" - Cox. The charts made an important contribution to South Pacific cartography. HILL 1894. COX II, p.307. DURIETZ 528. FERGUSON 302. Bookseller Inventory # WRCAM 47298A

A missionary voyage to the southern Pacific: Wilson, James (1760

Item Description: S Gosnell for T Chapman, London, 1799. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. a1-4+[2 binders direction]+[8 subscribers]+[4]+c-420+[4 additional subscribers] pages with 7 maps (5 folding) and 6 plates. Quarto (11 3/4" x 9 1/2") with new spine in six compartment with red label in gilt over original decorative blind stamped calf boards. (Ferguson 329; Sabin 104.633) First edition, first printing. Captain James Wilson (1760–1814), brought the first British missionaries to Tahiti on ship Duff in 1797. Wilson was a deeply religious man. The missionaries he brought were from the London Missionary Society. There were thirty men, six women and three children. Wilson, on the Duff also explored and visited many islands in the Pacific, some of which had never had any recorded visit by a European. Among these the most important are Mangareva in the Gambier Islands and Pukarua in the Tuamotus. Duff Paid a visit as a missionary ship to Tahiti during 1796, as a result, Missionary Society has first been established in Tahiti. Three years after the establishment, the directors of the Society appointed a committee to consider a suitable memorial for presentation to Wilson for his services in helping to establish the first mission in the South Seas. Wilson fought with the British army during the American War of independence and then served nine years with the East India company. While in India he was captured by Hyder Ali and, after a daring bid for escape, was imprisoned in the black hole of Seringapatam. After his release he continued service as a captain and, despite illness and further dangerous missions, accumulated sufficientr esources to retire. throughout it all, Wilson remained fast in his irreligious opinions. While living in England with his niece, however, he was converted to an evangelical faith. he felt called to volunteer for missionary service after reading the Evangelical Magazine. Haweis did not know Wilson before receiving a letter volunteering his services in the Pacific. his skills and newfound devotion seemed perfectly suited to the situation, and Haweis saw him as “God’s man.” the Duff arrived at Tahiti on march 5, 1797. the settlement at Tahiti of twenty of the missionaries, five of them with wives, and two children gives further examples of the role of the missionary captain. A pattern of intercourse had already been established by other voyagers, according to which the captain of a vessel would take the leading role in meetings. It is therefore not surprising that the focus of the chapter describing the arrival is on meetings between significant island figures and Captain Wilson. For example, Manemane, a “high priest” Frommo’orea, sought Wilson as a tayo, or friend, not Jefferson, the president of the missionaries. The official account of the first mission appeared in 1799, under the lengthy title A missionary voyage to the southern Pacific Ocean, performed in the years 1796, 1797, 1798 in the ship Duff commanded by Captain James Wilson, compiled from thejournals of the officers and the missionaries; and illustrated with maps, charts, and views drawn by Mr William Wilson.it was placed firmly within the tradition of the voyages ofdiscovery by an introduction compiledby samuel Greatheed that described previous european contacts with the islands and anappendix “including details never before published of the natural and civil state of otaheite.” the main narrative was taken from Wilson’s journal, with additions from his son and a journal kept by the missionaries during the period when the Duff was away from Tahiti at Tonga. Wilson dominated the events recorded in the narrative. Condition: Some offset toning from maps, occasional foxing, water mark to upper margin on some leaves, two leaves miss-bound at back, re-backed with contemporary blind stamped calf boards.

Item Description: Pr. by S. Gosnell for T. Chapman, London, 1799. First edition. This account of a mission to Polynesia and Tahiti (funded by the London Missionary Society) supplies, it must be said, much more by way of the missionary travellers' interested observations of lands and people's exotic to them than it does reports of the proselytizations they pursued; it was compiled by chief mate William Wilson from his own journals and those of Captain James Wilson. Dr. Thomas Haweis, co-founder of the London Missionary Society, edited the work and the Rev. Samuel Greatheed provided (anonymously) the "Preliminary discourse; containing a geographical and historical account of the islands where missionaries have settled, and of others with which they are connected." The Hill catalogue says, "The narrative is fresh, although sometimes naive, and provides a glimpse of everyday life on the islands that the mariner or naturalist didn't consider worth reporting." There is a most interesting Appendix, also, canvassing everything from native dress to houses to dances to cookery to canoes to marriage and the place of women to funeral customs ? not forgetting human sacrifice and sports. The volume is illustrated with six plates and seven oversized, folding maps, and includes an extensive list of subscribers. An inferior, less expensive edition appeared in the same year, printed by Gillet; the present example is sometimes identified as the Gosnell edition to distinguish it from the Gillet production. 4to (28.5 cm, 11.25"). [12], c, 420, [12] pp.; 7 fold. maps, 6 plts. ESTC T87461; Hill, Pacific Voyages, 1894; Sabin 49480. Contemporary reverse sheep, framed and panelled in blind, spine with leather title-label; leather peeling at extremities, front joint repaired and back one starting from head, spine with label rubbed and two compartments discolored. Hinges (inside) reinforced with cloth tape; front free endpaper lacking. Front pastedown with institutional bookplates; dedication leaf with pressure-stamp in upper margin and rubber-stamped numeral in lower margin. Title-page and dedication with offsetting to margins; title-page with small hole not touching text. First map foxed, with tears along two folds; sixth map with jagged tear along one inner corner; other maps lightly foxed. Occasional stray small spots of staining and some offsetting from plates onto opposing pages; a few page edges slightly ragged. In sum, in fact, a sound, clean, and pleasant volume.

Item Description: London: Printed By S.Gosnell, For T.Chapman, 1799., 1799. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. 4to. pp. 6 p.l., c, 420, [12]list of subscribers. 7 engraved maps (5 folding) & 6 engraved plates. modern quarter sheep (spine rubbed, 44 mm. strip from lower blank margin of title replaced, foxing to plates & adjacent leaves, repairs to a few maps- no loss). First Edition of the first missionary voyage to the South Pacific. Most of the missionaries were settled on Tahiti, with several others landed at Tonga and the Marquesas. Troubles with the natives arose, and most of the missionaries were forced to seek refuge in Sydney, Australia, while three on Tonga were killed. The mission on Tahiti was re-established in 1815. In addition to Tahiti, Tonga, and the Marquesas, the work contains valuable accounts of the Fiji Islands, Tongatapu, the Gambier Islands, and the discovery of a new group of islands, named the 'Duff Group', among the Santa Cruz Islands. On the outward voyage, the expedition visited Rio de Janeiro, an engraved view of which is included among the plates. The work is also of Australian interest because of a passage mentioning escaped Botany Bay convicts, and the fact that some of the missionaries who fled to Australia eventually settled there and founded families important in Australian history. Another later edition on laid paper with different pagination (4 p.l., c, 395, [1]blank, [12]). was published the same year. Cox II p. 307. Ferguson 301. Hill p. 184.
