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.

XII,120 pp. 'Except when Williams is obsessed with sin and punishment, his Journal makes entertaining and historically valuable reading for the picture it gives of a frontier society, an oboriginal society and the world in which both whites and Maoris lived. Williams appears as a somewhat chauvinistic Yankee, strongly anti-British, and an ardent believer in using the United States Navy to further the commercial interests of her citizens'.
