Book Description Hawthorn Press. 1976., Melbourne:, 1976. 8vo. [14], x, 419, [1] pp. Black gilt-stamped cloth, dust jacket; jacket spine faded. Very good. ISBN: 0725601213 "Johann Reinhold Forster, German pastor and scientist, accompanied Captain James Cooks accompanied Captain James Cook's second voyage to the Pacific. Forster, accompanied by his son, was selected to join the expedition following a disagreement between Joseph Banks and the Royal Society. The observations made by both Forster and his son were invaluable in the understanding of Pacific Islander life and the botany and geography of this hitherto unknown region. / Cook's second voyage was the voyage that cemented his reputation as a navigator. Although the Endeavour voyage of 1769-71 confirmed that New Zealand was an archipelago and charted the east coast of Australia, some members of the Royal Society still believed in the existence of a Terra Australis incognita, an unknown southern continent. Cook was commanded to find this continent in a new expedition with the ships HMS Resolution and HMS Adventure." [Royal Collection Trust]. Seller Inventory # PW1265
