Book Description: London: Alexander Hogg, [1784–6], 1784. 2 volumes, folio (395 × 260 mm). Contemporary calf-backed marbled boards with vellum corners, somewhat worn and with some stripping of the marble from the boards, rebacked with the original spine laid down, new labels. Contemporary ownership inscription of Mrs. Harris to both front pastedowns, bookplate of Sybil and Arthur Colefax. Light browning, the title page very slightly cropped into the imprint details, otherwise an unusually clean and wide-margined copy. With engraved portrait frontispiece and 156 other plates, maps, and charts including one large folding map showing the track of Cook's voyages. First edition of this "omnibus" compilation of Cook together with Byron, Wallis, Carteret, Mulgrave, Anson and Drake. Printed in double column in "large new Types, constructed on Purpose to comprise much Matter in a little Compass" and issued in 80 sixpenny parts with avowedly philanthropic intentions, Hogg's edition certainly did much to disseminate knowledge of Cook's discoveries; "Some other editions of these Works, unnecessarily extended to many large Volumes by loose Printing &c. and published by mercenary Persons would cost the Purchaser the enormous Sum of upwards of Twenty Guineas; so that many Thousands of Persons who would wish to peruse the valuable Discoveries so partially communicated to the World have hitherto been excluded from gratifying their eager Curiosity; but this Edition is published in only Eighty Numbers at 6d each, making when complete either One or Two Large Handsome Volumes in Folio The Poor as well as the Rich will thus become familiarly acquainted with these extraordinary and important Voyages and Discoveries" (publisher's preface). "An important collection of English voyages. [which] sometimes gives the original accounts, others are edited or abridged versions, and frequently additional material from other sources are added to give scope and depth to the narratives" (Hill). George William Anderson is almost certainly a pseudonym. Beddie Cook 18; Hill 18; Howgego I, C176; Spence p.26; Bookseller Inventory # 41708

Book Description: London: W.Strathan; and T.Cadell 1779 1785, 1773. Eight volumes, 4to, with the contents of the Atlas volume bound in to the third voyage (vols VI-VIII) as directed by the printers in the list of plates. The first voyage is a first edition, the second voyage is a third edition and the third voyage is a second edition. All bound in contemporary full calf, recently rebacked to style with morocco title labels. A very good set with foxing or offsetting to some leaves and occasional minor repairs to folding plates, but generally very clean and well preserved. Some wear to boards with old repairs to corners. In total 204 engraved plates, maps, views and charts (52, 64 and 88 in the three voyages respectively) The primary account of Cook's remarkable voyages of exploration, which "form the basis for any collection of Pacific books. In three great voyages Cook did more to clarify the geographical knowledge of the Southern Hemisphere than all his predecessors had done together. He was the first really scientific navigator and his voyages made great contributions to many fields of knowledge" (Hill) From a printing point of view the second edition of the third voyage is generally preferred to the first (Hughs took over the printing from Strahan and reset all the text). Contemporary support for this view is reported in a set presented by Mrs. Cook to Dr. Elliotson, which notes that "the letter press of the second edition being much superior to the first both in paper & letter press.".
