Contemporary half calf (top of spines of 3 volumes sl. dam.) with morocco labels on spines. With engraved portrait, 13 engraved title-pages, 52 folding engraved maps by C. van Baarsch and 134 engraved plates (mostly folding) by J.S. Klauber. First Dutch edition; with bookplate of B.J. van Dongen. - First collected accounts of the three great voyages by James Cook (1728-1779), the first really scientific navigator.

'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.

FLINDERS, Matthew. A voyage to Terra Australis; undertaken for the purpose of completing the discovery of that vast country, and proscuted in the years 1801, 1802, and 1803, in his majesty's ship the Investigator, and subsequently in the armed vessel Porpoise and Cumberland schooner with an account of the shipwreck of the Porpoise, arrival of the Cumberland at Mauritius, and imprisonment of the commander during six years and half in that island. London, printed by W. Bulmer and Co. and published by G. and W. Nicol, 1814.2 text volumes in 4to, large paper copy, and elephant folio atlas. Later uniformly blue morocco, spines gilt. With 9 steelengravings by William Westall in the text volumes and in the atlas 16 doublepage charts, 4 plates of coastal views by William Westall and 10 plates of botanical specimens by Ferdinand Bauer to illustrate Robert Brown's botanical appendix to the voyage. IX,(10),CCIV,269; 613 pp. First edition, issue on 'Imperial' large paper, of which only 150 copies were prepared and atlas in larger format as usual. - Flinders was the first commander to circumnavigate the Australian continent, and the first to give it its present name. By the time he was given command of the Investigator, Flinders had already demonstrated his unusual talent for navigation and surveying, notably on Captain Bligh's second breadfruit voyage. He surveyed the entire south coast from Cape Leeuwin to Bass Strait, the east coast, and the Gulf of Carpentaria. In the course of its survey, the Investigator encountered the French exploratory vessel Géographe, commanded by Nicolas Baudin. On his return to England, Flinders was compelled to put in to Mauritius for repairs and was made a prisoner for several years by the French government. Upon returning to England, he devoted the remainder of his life to preparing this work for the press, and died shortly before its publication. His account is one of the great works of Australian exploration from the earliest times (Hill p.216). 'The most outstanding book on the coastal navigation of Australia' and 'the centrepiece of any collection of books dealing with Australian coastal discovery' (Wantrup ). - Age-browned otherwise a superb set of this classic voyage account, in the largest possible format for both text and atlas.Ferguson 567; Hill 614; Wantrup 67a; Du Rietz 438 (text volumes only); Huntress 176C; Howgego F11.

PARKINSON, Sydney. A Journal of a Voyage to the South Seas, in His Majesty’s Ship, The Endeavour. 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 Tahite, 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; O'Reilly & Reitman 371 [Boeknr.: 34159 ]

WILKES, Charles. Narrative of the United States exploring expedition, during the years 1838, 1839, 1840, 1841, 1842. Philadelphia, Lea and Blanchard, 1845.5 volumes. Contemporary speckled calf, spines with raised bands, gilt ruled and green morocco title labels. With 11 folding maps (10 folding), 64 steel-engraved plates and ca. 300 wood-engravings in the text. Official trade edition, this edition and all later editions later than 1845 appeared without the atlas (Haskell p.40); the official first edition, of which only 100 copies were printed, issued also in 1845. - The first major American expedition visited and explored the coast of South America, over 200 Pacific islands, Australia and New Zealand (1839-40), the Hawaiian Islands (1840-41), the northwest coast of America and California (1841) and the South Pacific again in 1841. In 1842 he visited South Africa. Wilkes did find icecovered land, now called Wilkes Land, west of Adélie Land. He also surveyed more than two thousand kilometres of Antarctic coastline, confirming the existence of a vast polar continent. The expedition was made up of a number of notable American scientists, and their botanical, natural history and geological findings are included. 'Wilkes was tried in a court-martial for numerous varieties of scandalous conduct, neglect of duty, cruelty, oppression and illegal punishment of seamen' (Conrad p.50). 'Charles Wilkes, no poster-boy of American polar exploration, was a flogging tyrant, paranoid and peevish, insecure and insensitive. Yet as 'Commander' of the United States Exploring Expedition of 1838-42, Wilkes achieved a great deal of lasting significance, not only in his relatively brief visit to Antarctica but throughout the four-year voyage, especially in the South Pacific Islands' (Stam, Books on ice, p.80). - A nice set of Wilkes’s great United States Exploring Expedition.
