The definitive scholarly publication of Captain Cook's journals

A fine set of the definitive scholarly publication of Captain Cook's journals, being the first complete printing of the full text for all three voyages of discovery. This set includes the later published but uniform Life of Captain Cook by Professor Beaglehole published in 1974, and considered to be the fifth octavo volume in the set.

A fine set of the definitive scholarly publication of Captain Cook's journals, being the first complete printing of the full text for all three voyages of discovery. This set includes the later published but uniform Life of Captain Cook by Professor Beaglehole published in 1974, and considered to be the fifth octavo volume in the set.

Although the full text of the first voyage was published by Elliot Stock as early as 1893, some time elapsed before the unabridged accounts of all three voyages, transcribed and edited by Beaglehole from the original manuscripts, were made available to the public. Beaglehole's work has since become the indispensable reference on the voyages of Cook.

The five octavo volumes in this set are complemented by a portfolio of 58 maps bound in matching gilt decorated navy cloth. This set includes the separate addenda and corrigenda for the first two voyages and the portfolio of charts. Also loosely inserted is a ten-page booklet by Beaglehole titled Cook and the Russians, an addendum to the voyage of the Resolution and Discovery 1776-1780.

Condition Report: Some slight foxing in the portfolio case but not to the plates.
