About this book

Following his participation in James Cook’s circumnavigation in HMS Endeavour (1768–71), Joseph Banks developed an extensive global network of scientists and explorers. His correspondence shows how he developed effective working links withthe British Admiralty and with the generation of naval officers who sailed after Cook. Banks’s correspondence is one of the great primary sources for studying the Pacific region during this important period of exploration and colonial expansion. His Indian and Pacific correspondence has not previously been published in a fully edited thematic series. This critical edition of over 2,000 letters uses material from archives around the world.
