A New, Authentic, and Complete Account of: COOK, James.) ANDERSON,

About this Item: London: Alexander Hogg, [1784–6], 1784. Folio (376 x 246 mm). Recent sprinkled half calf, marbled boards, to style, red morocco label, bands framed by checkered gilt rolls, foliate lozenge gilt to the compartments. Sympathetically rebound, prelims and endmatter professionally restored, a number of short closed marginal tears some with archival tissue repairs, occasional marginal loss, that to the map at p.52 - Cook's Strait in New Zealand - with some loss of border and text, but overall a very good 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 important omnibus of Cook's voyages also including the voyages of 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). Sometimes referred to as "Anderson's Cook", George William Anderson is a pseudonym. This copy with the ownership inscription of Captain Thomas Jellis, Northampton Fencibles, to head of title page, dated 1799. The Northampton Fencibles were raised in 1794. Jellis appears to have moved to America with his family in 1812, settling in Cartersville, Virginia. His grandson, Captain Thomas Jellis Kirkpatrick served in the Confederate Army, and was appointed Captain of the Amherst Artillery in July 1861, becoming a Major in 1865, commanding the Nelson's Battalion. Two additional engraved plates laid in, one of The Queen's Hotel, London, the other, hand-coloured, of a pair of shells. Beddie Cook 18; Hill 18; Howgego I, C176; Spence p. 26; Parks Collection 104.

A New, Authentic, and Complete Account of: COOK, James.) ANDERSON,

About this Item: London: Alexander Hogg, [1784–6], 1784. Folio (378 x 238 mm). Contemporary reversed calf, expertly rebacked to style retaining original red morocco label, foliate panel in blind to boards. 19th-century newspaper clipping mounted to front pastedown; inscription to frontispiece verso, "Richard William Bloxham Fiander, the gift of his father, May 29th 1845". Corners and board-edges skilfully refurbished, title page and prefatory leaf a little cropped at the tail, folding map misfolded and with some splits, repaired with archival tissue verso, light browning throughout, plate facing p. 326 frayed and rumpled along bottom edge, but intact, final few leaves (list of subscribers and terminal blanks) creased, overall very good. With engraved portrait frontispiece and 156 other plates, maps, and charts, including large folding map showing the track of Cook's voyages. First edition of this omnibus compilation of Cook's voyages, together with those of 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 did much to disseminate knowledge of the discoveries of Cook and others among a middle class readership: "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; Seller Inventory # 119761

A COMPLETE SET OF COOK'S VOYAGES [COMPRISING:]: COOK, Captain James;

About this Item: 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.".
