Voyage Books

Our final catalogue for the year "Voyage Books" includes foundation French voyage accounts, together with a broad offering of material relating to Cook’s three voyages, Flinders' Voyage to Terra Australia with the text volumes inscribed “From the Author”, and three dramatic pictorial works: Webber’s famous depiction of the Death of Cook, a striking mezzotint relating to Louis Antoine Bougainville’s circumnavigation after Francesco Casanova (the painter not the lover!), and a dramatic depiction of the La Perouse voyage in Alaskan waters after Crépin. Also included is an impressive world chart by Purdy & Laurie, an archive relating to the maiden trading circumnavigation of the Avondale, and the rare imaginary voyage pamphlet by F.C. Bindemann.
