Description
1784 1ed Anderson VOYAGES Captain James Cook Drake Anson Carteret Mulgrave Hawaii



“Remember, the greater the opportunity, the fewer are those who see it.”

– James Cook



James Cook was an 18th-century British explorer known for these three major world voyages. The initial reason for his expeditions was to seek clarification and discover unknown regions in the Southern Hemisphere, mainly Australia and the surrounding islands. According to Hill,

“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”



Numerous accounts of Cook’s voyages were produced in the 18th-century, and George William Anderson’s “Collection of Voyages Round the World” is unquestionably the most iconic. It should be noted, however, that Anderson included other important English voyages in this work including those of Francis Drake, Lord Anson, Philip Carteret, Samuel Wallis, John Byron, and Lord Mulgrave.



This highly rare folio edition of Anderson’s account of Cook’s and other voyages is one of the most desirable 18th-century books on Pacific voyages!
