9780140436471: James Cook: The Journals (Penguin Classics)

Cook led three famous expeditions to the Pacific Ocean between 1768 and 1779. In voyages that ranged from the Antarctic circle to the Arctic Sea, Cook charted Australia and the whole coast of New Zealand, and brought back detailed descriptions of the natural history of the Pacific. Accounts based on Cook's journals were issued at the time, but it was not until this century that the original journals were published in Beaglehole's definitive edition. The JOURNALS tells the story of these voyages as Cook wanted it to be told, radiating the ambition, courage and skill which enabled him to carry out an unrivalled series of expeditions in dangerous waters.

Review:

A principal source for understanding European exploration of the Pacific in the eighteenth century. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW The most important book ever written about Cook. IAN BOREHAM, THE CAPTAIN COOK STUDY UNIT.

From the Publisher:

This classic edition of Cook's journals, taken from the originalmanuscripts, improves on previous editions by incorporating into its rightful place the rare 'Cook and the Russians' pamphlet, and by its use of re-originated maps and artwork, and thus provides for the first time the definitive and complete version of Cook's Journals. A reliable and authoritative text, its republication has been warmly and widely welcomed. The volumes contain Cook's accounts of his three great voyages of discovery in the Endeavour and the Resolution; introductions and detailed notes accompany the texts, providing necessary identifications and references, and giving additional information from other sources supplementing Cook's account. More extended extracts from the journals of Cook's shipmates are printed as appendices. A separate portfolio (included) contains the manuscript charts and views drawn by Cook and his officers, which he regarded as an essential complement to his Journals.
