About this book

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 contains the manuscript charts and views drawn by Cook and his officers, which he regarded as an essential compliment to his journals.
