Books from a private collection. Part 3: English voyage books before Cook

A shelf of English voyage books of the pre-Cook period is described in our catalogue of the third part of the collection of a long-term client and friend of Hordern House, with a few additions; their collection has been assembled over several decades, with books acquired from ourselves as well as from other specialist dealers. Anson and Dampier appear here, along with various associates of each of them, such as Byron, Funnell, Rogers, and Thomas – pretty much buccaneers all, or at least voyagers with an eye for a prize.
