Bougainville created a great deal of interest among the French in the Pacific and the French philosophers could substantiate the theories concerning the question of the 'noble savage' and the influence of society and it laws on men. On Tahiti became evident that the botanist's valet was a woman, Jeanne Barre; she stayed with the expedition and became the first woman on record to have circumnavigated the globe.The translator was John Reinhold Forster, the naturalist who accompanied Cook on his second voyage. - A fine copy.Sabin 6869; Hill 165; Borba de Moraes I, p.115; Dunmore, French explorers in the Pacific pp.58-113; Brosse, Great voyages of discovery, pp.24-32; Howgego B141.

IV-VII contain the second voyage 1772-1775, vol. VIII-XIII contain the third voyage 1776-1780. 'Cook earned his place in history by opening up the Pacific to western civilization and by foundation of British Australia. The world was given for the first time an essentially complete knowledge of the Pacific Ocean and Australia, and Cook proved once and for all that there was no great southern continent, as had always been believed. He also suggested the existence of antarctic land in the southern ice ring, a fact which was not proved until the explorations up the 19th century. Cook was a brilliant navigator and hydrographer, an excellent administrator and planner, and probably the first sea captain to realize the importance of preserving the health and well-being of his crew' (P.M.M. p.135). - (Some volumes sl. waterstained).Tiele 268; Cat.

HAWAII. Tropical plantation scene. (No place, second half 19th century). Original watercolour. 10 x 12,5 cm. A beautuful watercolour which, for several reasons, probably depicts an island scene in Hawaii. A gracefully executed pandanus tree dominates the right foreground, balanced by the partiallly cloud-covered, sharply contoured volcanic mountain in the left background. In the left foreground, a female figure wearing a long skirt and long-sleeved blouse contemplates the water, while behind her in the left middleground are several other figures, one a fully clothed male figure working with a long digging stick. Slightly further behind these figures are two low western style buildings with simple triangular frames. The irrigation channel (similar to those of the Hanalei Valley taro fields on Kauai), the man working with a Polynesian form of digging stick, the style of the houses (similar to that found in Koloa, on Kauai), the volcanic backdrop, the coconut and pandanus trees, and the western style of clothing worn by the figures, all point to a Hawaiian location.

KEATE, George. An account of the Pelew Islands, situated in the western part of the Pacific Ocean, composed from the journals and communications of Captain Henry Wilson, and some of his officers, who, in august 1783, were there shipwrecked, in the Antelope, a packet belonging to the Honourable East India Company. Third edition. London, G. Nicol, 1789.4to. Contemporary tree calf, spine richly gilt with red morocco title-label. With folding engraved chart (with small tear) and 16 engraved portraits and plates (some foxing). XXVIII,378 pp. First edition published in London in 1788. - In 1783 the East India Packet Antelope under command of Henry Wilson, ran onto a reef near one of the Palau Islands, a previously unexplored group, and was wrecked. The crew reached shore and were well treated by the natives. From the wreck they built a small boat which they managed to get to Macao, taking with them Prince Lee Boo, the son of king Abba Thule. Lee Boo soon died of smallpox in England. Captain Wilson allowed Keate (1729-97) to write a faithful account of the events from Wilson's journals and communications. This account did much to reinforce the idea of the noble savage and it is one of the most popular 18th century books on the Pacific and also the main source of early knowledge of the Palau Islands, the most western group of the Caroline archipelago. Includes a vocabulary of the Pelew language. - A fine copy.Hill 907; Huntress 107C. [Boeknr.: 21984 ]

Also a journal of the adventure's voyage, in the year 1772, 1773, and 1774. With an account of the separation of the two ships, and the most remarkable incidents that befel each. Interspersed with historical and geographical descriptions of the islands and countries discovered in the course of their respective voyages. London, F. Newbery, 1775.Contemporary calf, skilfully rebacked, spine lettered in gilt. With large folding chart, additional chart of 'Part of the the tropical discoveries of the Resolution sloop, Captain J. Cook in 1774' and 5 engraved plates. (14),328 pp. First edition. - Preceding Cook's official account by some 18 months, this was 'the first account of Cook's second voyage and the first account of exploration within the Antarctic circle' (Davidson 81). This eye-witness account was written by the Irish gunner's mate on the Resolution whom Cook had picked up in Batavia during his first voyage. It contains many events not recorded in the official account by Cook and gives the reasons which caused Sir Joseph Banks and his twelve assistants to withdraw from the expedition at the last moment. Marra made an uncuccessful attemp to desert at Tahiti on May 14, 1774, during this second voyage. With the very rare additional chart showing the track of the Resolution from Norfolk Island to the New Hebrides.

Faithfully transcribed from the papers of the late Sydney Parkinson, draughtsman to Joseph Banks on his late expedition, with Dr. Solander, round the World. London, printed for Stanfield Parkinson, 1773.Large 4to. Contemporary polished calf, skilfully rebacked, spine gilt with red morocco title label. With engraved frontispiece portrait by J. Newton, engraved map and 26 engraved plates. XXIII,212 pp. + errata leaf. First edition of the principal alternative account of Cook’s first voyage. - 'This is an account of the first expedition under the command of Captain Cook, 1768-1771. Parkinson was engaged as natural history draughtsman by Sir Joseph Banks, to accompany him and Captain Cook in the Endeavour to the South Seas. Parkinson made numerous drawings of botanical and other subjects, including landscapes and portraits of native chiefs. After exploring Tahiti, New Zealand, Australia, and the Great Barrier Reef, the expedition reached Batavia. On leaving for the Cape of Good Hope, Parkinson succumbed to fever and dysentery and was burried at sea' (Hill p.462). Parkinson's manuscripts and drawings became a matter of dispute. Banks considered that they were his, while Parkinson' brother Stanfield claimed them under the provisions of his brother's will. When Hawkesworth learned of the impending publication of this work, he obtained an injunction to prevent it appearing until some time after the official account. 'Although physically the most impressive of the unofficial narratives the work's merit lies in its sidelights on incidents during the voyage' (NZNB). The book includes important vocabularies of the languages of Taheite, New Zealand, New Holland, Savoo, Batavia (Low Malay), the coast of Malabar, Sumatra, Ceram, Madagascar, and of the natives on the river Gambia in Africa. This is the first work to identify the kangaroo by name, and Parkinson is the first professional artist to set foot on Australian soil. - (Some offsetting of the plates). - With armorial bookplate of Waldham Wyndham. - A very attractive large paper copy.Sabin 58787; Hill 1308; NZNB 4466; Du Rietz, Kroepelien, 944; Beddie 712; Kroepelien 944; O'Reilly & Reitman 371 [Boeknr.: 34159 ]
