Banks' Florilegium, A Publication in Thirty-Four Parts: NATURAL HISTORY; COOK,

Item Description: Alecto Historical Editions, London, 1984. First Edition. Broadsheet folio (29" x 22 1/2"). Volume XV only (of 34) of this stunning collection copperplate engravings of plants collected by Sir Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander while they accompanied Captain James Cook on his voyage around the world between 1768 and 1771. Plants were collected in Madeira, Brazil, Tierra del Fuego, the Society Islands, New Zealand, Australia and Java. No full set of the engravings in color was published until the late twentieth century, when Alecto Historical Editions, in partnership with the British Museum, produced 110 sets, 100 of which were offered for sale. As described by Alecto: "the engravings are printed in color à la poupée, up to ten colours being worked directly into the single plate before each print is pulled, with additional details added in watercolour. Each sheet is identified by a blind embossed stamp on the recto, recording the publishers' and printer's chops, the copyright symbol and date. The initials of the individual printer, the plate number and the edition number are recorded in pencil. Each of the engravings is protected within a double-fold sheet of Somerset mould-made 300 gsm paper, acid free and cut to form a window mount." This volume, from set #83, includes 22 engravings of plants found in Australia, contained in three cloth-backed portfolios within a cloth solander box, as issued. Some minor scuffing to the box; contents fine. Complete list of plates on request. Bookseller Inventory # 17960

A COMPLETE SET OF COOK'S VOYAGES [COMPRISING:]: COOK, Captain James;

Item Description: London: W.Strathan; and T.Cadell 1779 1785, 1773. Eight volumes, 4to, with the contents of the Atlas volume bound in to the third voyage (vols. VI-VIII) as directed by the printers in the list of plates. The first voyage is a first edition, the second voyage is a third edition and the third voyage is a second edition. All bound in contemporary full calf, recently rebacked to style with morocco title labels. A very good set with foxing or offsetting to some leaves and occasional minor repairs to folding plates, but generally very clean and well preserved. Some wear to boards with old repairs to corners. In total 204 engraved plates, maps, views and charts (52, 64 and 88 in the three voyages respectively) The primary account of Cook's remarkable voyages of exploration, which "form the basis for any collection of Pacific books. In three great voyages Cook did more to clarify the geographical knowledge of the Southern Hemisphere than all his predecessors had done together. He was the first really scientific navigator and his voyages made great contributions to many fields of knowledge" (Hill) From a printing point of view the second edition of the third voyage is generally preferred to the first (Hughs took over the printing from Strahan and reset all the text). Contemporary support for this view is reported in a set presented by Mrs. Cook to Dr. Elliotson, which notes that "the letter press of the second edition being much superior to the first both in paper & letter press.".
