The Bob and Mary Anne Parks Collection of Captain James Cook & Captain William Bligh
The Bob and Mary Anne Parks Collection is a landmark of its kind, and represents the finest such collection offered. These comprehensive and extensively illustrated catalogues will undoubtedly become one of the standard reference works on the subject.
The collection is offered for sale in two fully illustrated catalogues. The first part covers Captain James Cook. The second part covers Captain William Bligh.
The catalogues will prove an invaluable reference for collectors, booksellers, librarians and researchers.
