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.

With the very rare additional chart showing the track of the Resolution from Norfolk Island to the New Hebrides.
