He eventually returned home in 1864 after the government ordered the recall of the expedition because of its increasing costs and failure to find a navigable route to the interior.

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 ]

XXXV,403; VIII,450 pp. First edition. - Few books on South African matters have been the subject of such fierce denunciation and bitter criticisms as these volumes. The author proceeded to South Africa in the service of the London Missionary Society in 1819, and soon became a most drastic censor of the methods pursued towards the nativs by the colonists, and the policy of the colonial government with regard to native affairs. When the Researches in South Africa were published a large amount of public indignation was aroused, and the subject was brought before the Houses of Parliament, considerable changes in the administration of native affairs in South Africa being eventually brought about.

XXXIX,243 pp. Van Riebeeck Society, 2nd series, 20. - The Guardian sailed from Spithead in September 1789 with stores for Britain's new colony in New South Wales. Thirteen days out from the Cape of Good Hope she struck an iceberg that tore away her rudder and most of her keel. Half the ship's company took to the boats, only one of which survived the stormy 1300-mile voyage back to the Cape. A month later, through exemplary courage and seamanship and against all probabilities, the crippled Guardian herself sailed into Table Bay. The full and fascinating story of the Guardian's voyage is told here in the ship's logs and letters. [Boeknr.: 34555 ]

He made several excursions into the country in search of natural history specimens. It is described by Mr. Theal as the 'most trustworthy account of the Cape Colony and the various races of people then residing in it' that had been published in the eightheenth century. In 1772, J.R. Forster, engaged him to accompany Captain Cook on his second voyage as assistant naturalist. His account includes mention of a hairbreath escape from collision of Cook's two ships, the Adventure and the Resolution, not recorded elsewhere. Sparrman left the Resolution when it returned to Cape Town in March 1775. He resumed his naturalist studies in South Africa and also undertook ethnological research among the region's native Hottentot people. In 1778, Sparrman was back in Sweden, where he had been appointed president of the natural history collection of Stockholm's Academy of Sciences. Sparrman's account of Cook's voyage of 1772-75 helped popularize the newly devised Linnaen system of classification and nomenclature by applying it to the new varieties of plants and animals he had collected. It also includes some of the earliest ethnological studies of the native peoples of South Africa. - (Age-browned).

WEINTHAL, Leo. (Ed.). The story of the Cape to Cairo Railway & River Route from 1887 to 1922. The romance of a great project and how it has materialised. London, The Pioneer Publishing Company Limited, 1923-26.4 volumes + map portfolio. Original black hard-grain half morocco, spines lettered and decorated in gilt. Profusely illustrated with mounted photographic portraits, halftone plates (many folding) and text illustrations, and folding maps, most in colour (of which 12 in the map porfolio). First edition. - A lavish tribute to one of the most glorious failures of the empire, the project conceived by Cecil Rhodes as "The Iron Spine and Ribs of Africa". By 1914 there was already a 2,600-mile link from Cape Town to Bukama in the Congo; two sections of river steamer and an isolated length of Congolese railway took the route to Stanleyville. In the north, the line was continuous from Cairo to Luxor and from Wadi Halfa to Kosti; these two sections were connected by 250 miles of Nile steamer, but the route to cross uncharted parts of the northern Congo and southern Sudan was not even surveyed by the time of publication, and the scheme was never completed. Weinthal produced this encyclopaedic work as "a belated but substantial tribute to Rhodes's idea. As an advisory board for this Brobdingnagian project, Weinthal recruited every possible survivor with a connection to Rhodes and to colonial Africa, every likely expert on the continent, and every amenable viceroy, sirdar, and colonial governor, from the general manager of the South African Railways to Sir Abe Bailey, Flinders Petrie, and Lord Lugard. The contents include essays on the history, society, and natural conditions of the African states to be traversed by the prospective railway; the mercantile potential of these states and the benefit of rail transport; the railway engineering feats undertaken in East Africa; touristic topics, such as ethnographic studies of tribespeople; big-game hunting; the "mysteries" of the Great Zimbabwe; the progress of colonial society in Cairo; and genial fantasies concerning the future of an "unlocked" continent that would be crossed by great silver airships stopping airily at new cities to disembark their passengers; merchants, mining engineers, and families of colonial administrators' (See Merrington A Staggered Orientalism: The Cape-to-Cairo Imaginary", in Poetics Today 22.2, 2001). -Added the rare SYNOPSIS of principal contents.
