Likely to be an original subscriber's copy, listed as "Wilson - Crown Court, Broad St.", likely to be "John Wilson" whose red gilt leather ownership label is mounted into the front board, with special blind tooled lines surrounding it. A second or third edition, published between 1789 & 1791, according to research by Alan Frost published in the LaTrobe Journal of the State Library of Victoria, No. 8, 1971. A very bright unsophisticated copy of this work, which has become increasingly scarce. Ferguson 59 describes a 1 volume edition & cites only the Mitchell Library copy. Many of the illustrations were derived from Cook's Voyages, and were the most generally available representations of the natives of the Pacific Northwest, Tasmania, New Zealand, Hawaii & the Pacific accessible to the public at the time. Folio. Frontispiece, title page, (verso blank), (i) Royal Licence, (ii) Address to the Reader, (1)-990 Texts, etc. +2 pp Directions to the Binder, 2 pp A List of Subscribers, Complete with 90 plates & 22 maps. Bound in period reversed calf, red gilt title label on spine. Matching early reverse calf strengthening of outer hinge, a couple of splits on leather of spine and very chipped at top and bottom, o/w a very nice copy. "The geography books which appeared in the closing decades of the eighteenth century... are of considerable significance to students of the history of ideas, for the light they shed on English interest in geography and geographical exploration at the end of the eighteenth century. One of the most imposing of these usually quite imposing books is Thomas Bankes, Edward Warren Blake, and Alexander Cook's A New Royal Authentic and Complete System of Universal Geography. A massive folio volume this was a popular work, running to six editions in the ten years from 1787 to 1797." (Frost, Thomas Bankes’s Complete System, The La Trobe Journal, 1971) Hardcover.

Banks, Joseph. 1743-1820, naturalist & President of the Royal Society.

Autograph Letter signed ('Jos: Banks').

$1,500.00

14317

To "My Dear Sir", from Soho Square, March 17 (1812), regretting that he cannot accept an invitation for dinner since his wife has already accepted one. One page, 11.5 x 19 cm. Banks was an English botanist, naturalist and traveler with James Cook. The botanical specimens collected on Cook's first voyage by Banks, Daniel Solander, Sydney Parkinson & the crew of 90 aboard the Endeavour were the largest and most stunning collection of hitherto unknown specimens of fauna and flora collected on a single voyage of discovery. On their return to England, Joseph Banks funded the production of at least 743 magnificent copperplates of the specimens, which besides a few contemporary proofs, remained unpublished for over two hundred years. The specimens now reside in the British Museum [Natural History]. Banks eventually parlayed his participation in the voyage into the Presidency of the Royal Society, and his prominence was satirized by Gillray as the "South Sea Caterpillar", crawling out of the mud and transforming into a "Bath Butterfly", as he was awarded the Order of Bath.

The first English map devoted solely to the Dutch discoveries in New Holland (Australia). It is based on Thevenot's map of 1663, with the addition of a decorative cartouche on the lower left and a wonderful explanatory note on the history of discovery. Bowen expounds an optimistic view of the country's riches. Dampier's account of the west coast of Australia had reported that the land was worthless - Bowen rejected this, based on the fact that South and Central America were overflowing with riches. James Cook, discoverer of the east coast of Australia, carried this map on his 1st voyage of discovery. One of the most attractive early Australian maps. A wonderful copy with good margins.

The Columbia River is added to what is a later imprint of the 1795 edition of this early American map showing Cook's explorations of Hawaii and Alaska. Cary re-engraved a British map of 1784, and added changes reflecting American patriotism. Longitude is measured west from Philadelphia & Greenwich. "Engraved for Cary's American Edition of Guthrie's Geography improved." & "J.T. Scott Sculp." are erased from the printing plate, with some light traces left in the impression. Copper engraving, impression 292x197 mm, engraved surface 283x189 mm. The number "58" is scratched into the top corner as well as penned in the top margin. Rumsey #2542020 is a similar plate, although the sizes are a couple of millimeters different, possibly because this map is mounted on light card. The chart centers on the Pacific Northwest Coast from the Gulf of California (the Baja Peninsula) to the Alaska Coast, Prince William Sound, Cook's River, the Bering Strait, the Aleutian Islands and Russian Kamtschatka. This edition includes the Columbia River, which earlier editions did not, and it first appeared on a British map of 1798, connecting it with the Missouri, from Vancouver's explorations. According to Fiske, Captain Gray, a New England trader of the ship "Columbia" charted it and shared his maps with Vancouver. The tracks of Capt. Cook in his ship “The Resolution” and Capt. Clerke in “The Discovery” are shown crossing the Pacific from Hawaii to the NW Coast & Kamtschatka. Capt. Clerke took over as Master of “The Resolution” after Cook's death in Hawaii in 1779. Samuel Hearne's discoveries to the north of Hudson's Bay are depicted, as well as the area where he located the Coppermine River in 1770. Hearne was the first white man to to cross overland from Hudson's Bay tracing the river to the Arctic Ocean. A faint water mark in the right side of the map, with early outline color on the continents. Very good condition overall.

Collection of items from the widow of Captain Cook; Dance portrait of Cook, a painting of the Cook family crest and provenance with American connections.

Ca.. 1855.

$9,500.00

5521




A collection of three items assembled by John McAllister Jr. of Philadelphia ca. 1855, the son of Francis (Wardale) M'Allister, a cousin of James Cook's. The three items include an autograph letter from McAllister explaining the provenance of the collection; a copy of the print engraved by J.K. Sherwin of Dance's portrait of Cook; and a framed painting of the Cook family crest. In the autograph letter, M'Allister states that the portrait was one of two copies which were presented at two different times to his mother by the widow of Capt. Cook. This would appear to be the companion portrait to Beddie 3392, (Nan Kivell 9528) held by the National Library of Australia, which "includes a 20-line MS note signed by John M'Allister stating that the engraving 'is one of two copies which were presented to my mother at two different times by the widow of Captain C.' ". McAllister notes that one of the copies was brought from London about the year 1792 by Col. Eleanor Oswald of Philadelphia, the other was carried to the States in 1802 by William Poyntell of Philadelphia - "these gentlemen had called on Mrs. Cook by request of my Mother." The second item is a framed painting of Cook's family crest. According to the notations on the back of the boards, the crest was painted by John Scott, R.A., by request of McAllister. It was copied from a painting which was presented by Cook's widow to Mrs. Grace (Fleck) Carter, a niece of Captain Cook. Mrs. Carter was born at Redcar in 1771 and "is still living at that place in 1855." The handsome gilt background shows off a crest of four crossed flags, the British and US flag and two others, a shield with the names "Pacific Ocean, New Holland, N. America, Asia & S. America" inscribed on it; "Nil Intentatum Reliquit" below with cannons, cannonballs and spears; "Captain James Cook R.N. F.R.S." in a red banner below; and above all the crest of a bent arm holding aloft the British flag, crowned with the motto "Circa Orbem". It is in an early dark frame. ALS 7 1/2 x 9", mounted on board, some foxing. The crest is an oil painting on board, 10 x 12" in a period frame. The Dance portrait has been varnished in the manner of an oil painting, trimmed to 10 x 12", backed on board. It has recently been restored, but is still sadly lacking its former luster. There are a series of M'Allister family items, including letters, books & portraits held by the National Library of Australia and listed in Beddie as 3392, 3633, 4345, 4344, 1958, 1973 & 2022. An interesting American association with Cook.

The other narratives include Byron's voyage to the Gilbert & Tuamotu Islands, Wallis's discovery of Tahiti & Moorea and Carteret's discovery of Pitcairn Island after his separation in a storm from Capt. Wallis. "The second edition is considered the best edition", states Hill p. 139.

Vol II: (ii) title, 5 pp contents, 1 pp advert (for Wales & Bayley, "Astronomical Observations"), 396pp, 27 plates & maps.

The main objective of the 2nd voyage was to circumnavigate the world as far south as possible in search of the Great Southern Land. In doing so, the Resolution & Adventure became the first ships to cross the Antarctic circle, in Jan. 1773. Cook crossed the Antarctic circle twice more and achieved the 71 S, a record that was to last for 50 years. On this voyage Cook pioneered the use of sauerkraut as a dietary supplement to prevent scurvy- he succeeded, losing only four of his 112 man crew and none from scurvy. This was regarded as a great maritime feat on its own. During this voyage, Cook played his part in furthering the great longitude debate. An accurate way to determine longitude had long been a goal of all seafaring nations. English clockmaker John Harrison was a mechanical genius who invented a clock that would carry the true time from the home port, thereby enabling the calculation of the ships' longitude. Cook carried four watches with him, the principal one named "K-1," which he frequently complimented in the log of the Resolution, calling it "our trusty friend the Watch," and "our never failing guide, the Watch." With its help, he made the first, and highly accurate, charts of many newly discovered South Pacific islands. This is also the only account of any of his voyages that Cook himself wrote.

THIRD VOYAGE. Cook, James & King, James. Voyage to the Pacific Ocean undertaken, by the Command of his Majesty, for making discoveries in the Northern Hemisphere to determine the Position and Extent of the West Side of North America;... In his Majesty's Ships the Resolution and Discovery. In the Years 1776, 1777, 1778, 1779, and 1780.

London, printed by H. Hughs, for G. Nicol and T. Cadell 1785, the 2nd edition. 3 volumes quarto:
Vol I: (ii) title, (viii) contents, (lxxxvi) introduction, (lxxxvii-lxxxix) to the Memory of Capt. James Cook, (i) blank, (xci) list of plates (total xcvi) & 421 pp, 7 pp maps and plates Vol II: (ii) title, 10pp contents, 548pp, 11 maps & plates Vol III: (ii) title, 10pp contents, (ii) appendix, 556pp, 6 maps & plates.

The seven appendices include: Tables of the Route of the Resolution & Discovery; Tables of Numerals, exhibiting the Affinity and Extent of Language...; Vocabulary of Language of Friendly Islands; Vocabulary of Language of Nootka...; Vocabulary of Language of Atooi, one of the Sandwich Islands; Table to Shew the Affinity between the Languages spoken at Oonalashka & Nootka Sound; Table of the Variations of the Compass.

The narrative of Cook's 3rd voyage (1776-1780) was compiled by James King, who succeeded him as commander at Cook's death. The objective of the 3rd voyage was to search for the North West Passage from the western side, and in general continue the surveying of the Pacific. Besides exploring and charting the NW coast from Bering Straits to northern California, the expedition also called at Tasmania, New Zealand & the Cook, Tonga & Hawaii Islands. Cook also had the Watch "K-1" with him on this voyage. Despite Cook's great diplomacy & his efforts to respect the native peoples of the lands he visited, Cook was murdered in Kealakekua Bay, Hawaii. Almost at the instant Cook died in 1779, according to an account kept at the time, K-1 also stopped ticking. "This voyage resulted in what Cook judged his most valuable discovery - the Hawaiian Islands." Hill p. 62. A most important Pacific voyage -a primary reference for Hawaii, Alaska & the Pacific Northwest.

Kippis, Andrew. The Life of Captain James Cook...

G. Nicol and G.G.J and J. Robinson, London 1788, 1st edition. 4to, xvi, 528pp, portrait frontis. A fine large copy.

First edition of the first biography of Cook, the standard life of the navigator for the next century. Kippis's work was partly based on printed sources and Admiralty documents, but also, as he points out in his Preface, "the fresh matter now communicated is of the most authentic kind, and derived from the most respectable sources...Lord Howe... the Earl of Sandwich...Sir Hugh Palliser...the Captain's amiable and worthy Widow... Sir Joseph Banks". the 22-page account of Cook's death is sourced directly from Samwell, whose account (today exceptionally rare) had appeared in print two years earlier, with Kippis's help: "I procured its publication, that, if any objections should be made to it, I might be able to notice them in my own work. As the narrative hath continued for more than two years unimpeached and uncontradicted, I esteem myself fully authorised to insert it in this place, as containing the most complete and authentic account of the melancholy catastrophe, which, at Owhyee, befell our illustrious navigator and Commander...". As Holmes notes, this text is "the frankest and most reliable of all contemporary accounts". The proposed settlement of Botany Bay is mentioned as a result of the voyages; "If it be wisely and prudently begun and constructed, who can tell what beneficial consequences may spring from it, in future ages?: Beddie, 32; Davidson, p 67; Hill, p. 163; Hocken, pp 26-7; Holmes, 69; Kroepelien, 647; Lada-Mocarski, 40; O'Reilly-Reitman, 455; Sabin, 37954.

Folio atlas with the rare "DEATH OF COOK" plate. 61 copper-engraved plates & 2 folding maps, very clean.

Magnificently bound in full matching full brown marbled decorated calf, spine in six compartments, elaborately gilt decorated, gilt dentelles, title labels in in red gilt calf, volume number labels in black gilt calf. The folio atlas is bound to match in march half brown decorated calf and marbled boards.

The cornerstone of any Pacific voyage collection. These official accounts are the full accounts of the three voyages and are illustrated with impressive engravings based on the works of the official artists, which include Sydney Parkinson, Wm. Hodges and John Webber. At the time of publishing, they were very expensive and the 1st editions were sold out within a few days of publication.

A Philadelphia edition, a humble period set that you can imagine on someone's shelf in 19th century America. Any American editions of Cook's Voyages are scarce. The first American publication of Cook's 3rd voyage was a 1783 Philadelphia reprint of Rickman published by R. Bell, which was described as "a miserable edition" in the Gentleman's Magazine. Another edition appeared in New York in 1796, published by Tiebout and O'Brien for Benjamin Gomez, in 4 smaller vols. This Philadelphia edition appeared in 2 volumes.OCLC 425992831 cites only 37 plates; Beddie 1583; Shaw & Shoemaker #43725; Forbes Hawaii #475. 2 volumes, 8vo, xxxvi, 37-445pp, 30 numbered plates including frontispiece portrait of Cook (&) iv, 5-350, frontis & 7 plates.

Most interesting for the 4 pp of advertisements, which include the announcement for sale of Captain Cook's 1st, 2nd & 3rd voyage, at $4, $16, and $2 respectively. Bell published numerous editions of Thomas Paine's works, and others on the American Revolution. His advertised offer of Cook's 3 voyages appears to be somewhat of an exaggeration - he did publish the first American publication of Cook's 3rd voyage in 1783, which was a reprint of Rickman's account of the 3rd voyage, 1st published in London in 1781. The edition was disparaged in the Gentleman's Magazine as "a miserable edition". The official account of the voyage was not published until 1784. Bell also offers "New Publications just imported from various parts of Europe; also several New Books and Pamphlets Lately printed and now selling, at Bell's Book-store, near St. Paul's Church, in Third Street, Philadelphia." It is also notable that Cook's Voyages constituted three of the 11 books listed in the adverts. Two new publications by Bell receive full-page advertisements - for John Adams "Observations on the Commerce of the American States", published by Bell in 1783. The other is for "Considerations on the Society or Order of Cincinnati..." by 'Cassius', who is supposed to have been Aedanus Burke, one of the Chief Justices of South Carolina, whose pamphlet formed the basis of Mirabeau's work on the subject. The authorship of this pamphlet is ascribed to Stephen Moylan, one of the Founders of the Order of Cincinnati, who signs himself, at the end, "An Obscure Individual."

A reference work with a seated figure of Captain James Cook (plate 23, p37) "Captain James Cook 'Alpha Factory'". The figure was derived from the 1776 Nathaniel Dance portrait of Cook and was perhaps created for the Great Exhibition of 1851, as a symbol of the expanding British empire. This special figure required eight rather than the usual three months necessary to make 'Alpha' figures. 8vo, frontis, 80pp, 61 color plates. Publisher's buckram, gilt title, pictorial dj, very good.

A board game designed as a jigsaw puzzle, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of reign of King George III. The game highlights the important historical events that occurred during George III's long reign, an important period for both Australia & the United States. In the South Pacific, James Cook's voyages illustrate important discoveries - South Pacific natives; the Tahitian woman in the wide skirt; "Botany Bay" illustrating an aborigine & a kangaroo, after Stubbs famous image (place no. 63) and the Mutiny on the Bounty. Events of the American Revolution are illustrated at length; "Stamps" being burned; the 1st meeting of Congress at NY; the battle at Lexington, MA; the Declaration of Independence; the Surrender of Burgoyne; the Surrender at Yorktown. Other events include the King's marriage & birth of his children, riots in London & Birmingham, the Irish Rebellion, wars with Spain & France, and the subsequent peace. Abolition of the slavered; Haley's Comet, Handel, hot air balloon & the smallpox vaccine, dated Jan 17, 1809. The game was published by John Harris. Harris took over Elizabeth Newbery's publishing business in 1801 and worked until it was sold in 1843. Newbery was part of the famous 18th century children's literature publishers. Harris also worked with John Wallis, one of the most prolific publishers of games and dissected puzzles between 1775 and 1847. (The Development of the English Board Game, 1770-1850 / Caroline G.

The inhabitants live in anarchy "la plus complette", survive on potatoes and because there is no sweet water, they drink sea water (!).

The breadfruit found there are the best of all the Southern ocean islands. The chief's name is "Honoo".

Published 1774-1775, 13 volumes complete. An armchair traveler of the day, reviewing the countries of Europe, America, Africa, etc. The most interesting content occurs in the last three volumes, which cover Cook's first and second voyages. The text regarding the second voyage is one of the earliest published accounts of the voyage, as it was published in 1775. Cook had only just returned from the voyage on 31st July of that year. The publishing date coincides with the release the same year of the unofficial account published by the gunner's mate John Marra. Marra's account was written and published anonymously sometime between August and December 1775. Marra finally admitted to writing the anonymous account in December 1775, and thence started publishing extracts under his own name. No author is attributed to the account in this set. Volume 11 covers Cook's first voyage 1768-71 (48pp), Byron's voyage 1764-6 (80pp); Wallis voyage 1766-8 (50pp); Carteret 1766-9 (29pp). Volume 12 continues Cook's first voyage (216pp, 4 copperplate engravings). Volume 13 includes 62pp on the 1st voyage with a plate of a kangaroo - the 2nd voyage (pp63-216) includes 2 engravings of icebergs and ice mountains. The inclusion of the account at the end of the last volume of the set, seems to indicate that it was included in the last instance before publication.

Map published London 10th June 1775, printed in 2 sheets and joined to span the Southern Pacific ocean from west of New Zealand to east of South America. The vast masses of sea on the map are criss-crossed with the routes of explorers including Cook (1st voyage), Byron, Wallis, Bougainville, Anson, Halley & Narborough. Islands include Pitcairn Island, at the incorrect longitude of 133 degrees W; the "Imaginary Isles of Solomon" (Solomons); Otahiete (Tahiti); Marquesa of Mendoca (Marquesas) & Tierra del Spiritu Santu (New Hebrides). A very uncommon chart, with strong New Zealand and Antarctic credentials. Cook's discovery & circumnavigation of New Zealand is recorded, with his errors, only 2 years after the publication of Cook's own account. Freziers' ice islands are recorded, as are the close approaches of the Antarctic Circle by Cook & Anson. Tooley page 140 no. 1119. "Sayer was one of the leading publishers of geographical material in 18th century London. In 1775, he went into partnership with John Bennett and together issued a series of atlases and charts of most parts of the world."

The Life of John Ledyard, the American Traveller; comprising Selections from his Journals and Correspondence.

Second edition.

John Ledyard, the Connecticut traveler and adventurer, was one of the earliest great American explorers. He sailed with Captain James Cook on his third voyage, and so visited the Pacific, the Northwest and Alaska and witness to the discovery of Hawaii. It is said that he was an oarsman on the boat that deposited Cook ashore for his fatal interchange with the Hawaiians, and so he witnessed the great explorer's demise. An inveterate traveler, Ledyard attempted to cross over to America by traversing Russia, at Thomas Jefferson's behest. He later disappeared while exploring the Nile in 1789. The writing of Ledyard's biography was eventually to come to Sparks, a noted American historian. A substantial portion of the text relates to Cook's third voyage, and contains critical comments on Ledyard's narrative found nowhere else. Second edition, London and Cambridge editions of 1828 as well as a London "second" edition of 1834; Holmes 86 (1828 edition), Howes S818. Sabin 88991. Lada-Mocarski 92 (ref).

[Provided Vital Information to Cook] Wallis, Samuel (1728-1795), naval officer and Pacific explorer.

Signed document by the Pacific explorer & discoverer of Tahiti.

London.

$1,250.00

14150

Signed document dated Navy Office 6 June 1791. Addressed to the Right Honble Henry Dundas, who was Treasurer of the Navy and became First Lord of the Admiralty. The document is a request for tax relief signed by Geo. Marsh, Sam Wallis & one other (illegible). 19.5 x 32 cm. Watermark GR below the crown. Wallis was born in Cornwall, England and entered the Navy as a midshipman. In 1759, he distinguished himself in the Quebec campaign. In 1766 he took command of HMS Dolphin, whose instructions were to search for the great continent "Terra Australis Incognita" and resulted in him circumnavigating the world and discovering the islands of Tahiti, which he named "King George the Third's Island" (June 1767). His voyage was plagued by dysentery and malaria, and many died before returning to England in May 1768. On his return, he was able to provide vital information to James Cook before he embarked on his first voyage to observe the transit of Venus in Tahiti in 1769. Cook followed several of Wallis' regimens, which contributed to the success of his voyages. Wallis included citrus and greens in the sailor's diets and maintained humane and sanitary working conditions on board ship. These regimens served Cook well, as he discovered the east coast of Australia, was the first to cross the Antarctic Circle, discovered Hawaii & Alaska. In 1780 Wallis was appointed Commissioner of the Admiralty, and he remained there until his death in 1794.

London: John Webber, 1788-92.

$30,000.00

9137

A very rare colored issue from the first series of "Views in the South Seas" which was usually presented in blue-gray and sepia washes. The extremely rare life time edition was self-published by Webber and Sir Maurice Holmes states in his "Captain James Cook RN FRS, A Bibliographical Excursion" (1952) that the original drawings were "etched and coloured by himself". Usually issued as a soft ground etching tinted in brown and grey wash, this is an extremely rare colored issue; Holmes suggests colored by Webber himself. Impression mark 450 x 323 mm with large margins, 539 x 390 mm. "Pl.13" penciled in the top right corner, along with "1st Augt. 1788" in the lower right. Soft ground etching with hand color. Watermark J. Whatman. Joppien 3.372A.a. Webber accompanied James Cook on two of his important voyages of discovery and was engaged as the artist for Cook's third voyage, during which Cook discovered Hawaii & Alaska. Webber was more fully trained than any of the artists of the previous voyages, and he and Cook worked closely together to illuminate "the unavoidable imperfections of written accounts, by enabling us to preserve, and to bring home, such drawings of the most memorable scenes of our transactions, as could only be expected by a professed and skilled artist." (J. Cook & J. King, Voyage to the Pacific Ocean, London 1784, Vol I, p.5). Because he was there with Cook in the field, his paintings "constituted a new visual source for the study of history..." (Smith, Bernard, Art as Information. Sydney, 1978). Cook's ships were the first Western contact with the natives of Nootka Sound and the furs they traded with them were sold at a vast profit in Macao in the following year, 1779. Soon American and English ships were making annual trips to the Northwest Coast in search of "Sea Beaver" pelts. After the publication of the official history, Webber issued a series of twelve splendid soft ground etchings produced between 1788 and 1792 and this print is one of those early issues. It is extraordinarily rare. The culmination of his long concentration on his sixteen subjects were finally issued as a book after his death by Mr. Boydell under the title "Views in the South Seas..." The proof reader did a poor job, with two mistakes on the title page, mistaking Webber's christian name for James and Captain Cook's name as "Cooke". In this issue, which is also scarce, the plates are dated April 1, 1809, although the watermarks are nearly always later.

The separately published image by Webber of one of the iconic images of the 18th century. Cook, already a successful navigator, was immortalized after his death at the hands of Hawaiian natives at Karakakoa Bay. Cook had spent two months on the Big Island in 1779 and was well received, the natives believing he was a God. When he was forced to return due to a damaged mast, he was viewed as a mortal who had already sorely stretched the supplies of the Hawaiians. It is also thought that his handling of the natives was uncharacteristically brusque, leading to conjecture that this consummate traveler's judgment was somehow impaired. Copper engraved print, published as the Act directs 1st Jan. 1784, by J. Webber, No. 312, Oxford Street, and W. Byrne, No. 19, Titchfield Street, London. 24 x 18 3/4" impression mark.
