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

Item 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.".
