originalKupferstich von ca. 1780 - aus dem Atlas von James Cook's dritter Reise | original copper engraving from circa 1780 out of the atlas from James Cook's third voyage - Blattmasse ca.40 x25,5 cm - gut erhalten. - in very good condition. | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------ ---------- Cook's Third Voyage (1776-1779) During his first and second voyage, Cook circumnavigated the globe twice. He had sailed into the Antarctic extensively and had charted the coastlines from Newfoundland to New Zealand. Cook's third voyage was organized to seek a more efficient route from England to both southern and eastern Asia without entailing rounding the Cape of Good Hope.Since the beginning of the European expansion in the later fifteenth century, the search for a Passage more Northwest or even Northeast had been on the agenda of lots of northern European mariners and merchants. Incentive for the latest exploration for this specific route was England's growing interests in India, economical as well as colonial, in the late eighteenth century. Cook, who again was in command of this Resolution, was to approach the Northwest Passage from the Pacific. The Discovery, a second ship captained by Charles Clerke, was to accompany him. After leaving England separately, they regrouped at Cape Town and went from there to Tasmania, New Zealand and also Tahiti. They then continued to sail north and made landfall at the Christmas Island and Hawaiian Islands. Cook went further northward and charted the American west coast from northern California as far as the Bering Strait. When he returned to Hawaii for the winter, he was killed in an encounter with natives on February 14, 1779. Clerke took over the command of the expedition after Cook's death, but died several months later in August. Both ships returned to England in 1780, commanded by John Gore who had taken over the Discovery after Cook's death. The voyage had lasted a total of more than four years from start to finish. James Cook James Cook was born on 7 November 1728 in the Yorkshire village Marton. His father was a poor Scottish farm labourer, who had worked his way up to supervisor. James also began as a farm labourer and grocer's assistant. Soon he found employment in a Collier on the Baltic Sea. During the Seven Year's War in 1755, he volunteered for service and enlisted as an able seaman on the Eagle. He was promoted to master's mate under Captain Joseph Hamar within a month due to his outstanding ability. About four years later he had passed his master's examinations. James Cook, commanding his own ship, performed a very crucial charting and mapping of the Saint Lawrence River making the great amphibious assult upon Quebec City in 1759 possible. He was given command of the schooner Grenville in 1763 to survey the eastern coasts of Canada over a four year periode. These excellent charts were used up until the early 20th century. In 1768 James Cook was selected to lead an expedition to observe the transit of Venus as well as to explore new lands in the Pacific Ocean. In his first Pacific voyage, he rounded Cape Horn in the Endeavour reaching Tahiti on 3 June 1769. The transit of Venus was successfully observed after recovering a necessary scientific instrument stolen by the natives. The Endeavour then spent six months charting New Zealand. Next Cook explored and claimed possession of eastern Australia. The crew suffered an appalling 43% fatality rate after returning to England, on 12 June 1771, via New Guinea, Java and the Cape of Good Hope. James Cook thus became very concerned about crew health on subsequent voyages. He instituted compulsory dietary reforms that were copied by several other ship captains. The reason of Captain Cook's second Pacific Ocean voyage was to confirm the existence of a theorized Great Southern Continent. His ship the Resolution, which was accompanied by the Adventure, departed Plymouth on 13 July 1772 and again sailed around the Cape of Good Hope. Beset by ice, he unfortunately wasn't able to reach Antarctica. Although its existence was suspected, James Cook demonstrated, by traversing large areas of the south Pacific, that it would have to be a frigid wasteland, and not an economically productive addition to the British empire. With the incredible accuracy of only 3 miles James Cook charted many of the South Pacific Islands. This incredible accuracy was made possible by a new and highly accurate clock. Both ships returned to England on 29 July 1775, via Cape Horn. The experimental diets and close attention to cleanliness had a miraculous effect: out of a crew of 118, only one man was lost to disease. The many paintings by the artists were widely displayed and published as engravings, due to high public interest. Furthermore James Cook was awarded the Copley Gold Medal and elected as a fellow of the Royal Society. The third and last great voyage is significantly important to the history of the west coast of North America. Primarily Captain Cook and his men were searching for the Northwest Passage from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean. The ships both sailed around the Cape of Good Hope to reach the west coast of America in February of 1778. They continued north along the coast in haste to the Bering Sea and Bering Strait in an attempt to pass through the Arctic Ocean during the summer season. Foiled by ice, James Cook returned to Hawaii to prepare for another attempt at the Northwest Passage in the next season. A storm damaged the foremast of the Resolution soon after they had departed and forced them to return to Kealakekua Bay for repairs. Unfortunately, they had previously overstayed their welcome and relations became tense. The theft of a ship's cutter led Captain Cook to. Artikel-Nr.: 128881.

3 volumes, quarto (294 x 228 mm). Contemporary sprinkled calf, red morocco labels, spines direct-numbered gilt, raised bands. Joints partly cracked but still very firm, spine ends a little chipped and corners rubbed, occasional light spotting and the odd stain, but a very good, wide-margined and crisp copy. 52 maps, charts and plates in all, 41 of them folding. First edition of the official account of Cook's first voyage, in the preferred issue with the Straits of Magellan plate, together with previous exploratory expeditions under Byron, Carteret and Wallis, compiled by John Hawkesworth. The primary purpose of Cook's voyage in Endeavour was the observation of the transit of Venus from Tahiti, and then to continue the enterprise of geographical investigation begun by Byron. This was to result in the discovery of the Society Islands, the circumnavigation of New Zealand, and the charting of the eastern coast of Australia. "Hawkesworth, an eminent London author, was chosen by Lord Sandwich and commissioned by the Admiralty to prepare these narratives for publication [He] was expected to add polish to the rough narratives of sea men, and to present the accounts in a style befitting the status of the voyages as official government expeditions, intended to embellish England's prestige as a maritime power." Although the book was a huge success, fast becoming a best-seller, it was disastrous for its editor: "He was publicly attacked on three different counts: by the captains for tampering with the texts of their journals, by prudish readers for reprinting descriptions of the sexual freedoms of the South Sea islanders, and by devout churchmen for impiety in the general introduction to the work, in which Hawkesworth had rashly challenged the doctrine of providential intervention. He was devastated by this critical barrage, and it was thought to be the main cause of his death. The rumour recorded by Malone that he killed himself with an overdose of opium is uncorroborated, but Fanny Burney's conviction that his health was destroyed by the vilification he suffered seems well founded" (ODNB). A handsome and appealing set. Hill 782; Howgego I, C173; Sabin 30934. Artikel-Nr.: 87127.

He had sailed into the Antarctic extensively and had charted the coastlines from Newfoundland to New Zealand. Cook's third voyage was organized to seek a more efficient route from England to both southern and eastern Asia without entailing rounding the Cape of Good Hope.Since the beginning of the European expansion in the later fifteenth century, the search for a Passage more Northwest or even Northeast had been on the agenda of lots of northern European mariners and merchants. Incentive for the latest exploration for this specific route was England's growing interests in India, economical as well as colonial, in the late eighteenth century. Cook, who again was in command of this Resolution, was to approach the Northwest Passage from the Pacific. The Discovery, a second ship captained by Charles Clerke, was to accompany him. After leaving England separately, they regrouped at Cape Town and went from there to Tasmania, New Zealand and also Tahiti. They then continued to sail north and made landfall at the Christmas Island and Hawaiian Islands. Cook went further northward and charted the American west coast from northern California as far as the Bering Strait. When he returned to Hawaii for the winter, he was killed in an encounter with natives on February 14, 1779. Clerke took over the command of the expedition after Cook's death, but died several months later in August. Both ships returned to England in 1780, commanded by John Gore who had taken over the Discovery after Cook's death. The voyage had lasted a total of more than four years from start to finish. James Cook James Cook was born on 7 November 1728 in the Yorkshire village Marton. His father was a poor Scottish farm labourer, who had worked his way up to supervisor. James also began as a farm labourer and grocer's assistant. Soon he found employment in a Collier on the Baltic Sea. During the Seven Year's War in 1755, he volunteered for service and enlisted as an able seaman on the Eagle. He was promoted to master's mate under Captain Joseph Hamar within a month due to his outstanding ability. About four years later he had passed his master's examinations. James Cook, commanding his own ship, performed a very crucial charting and mapping of the Saint Lawrence River making the great amphibious assult upon Quebec City in 1759 possible. He was given command of the schooner Grenville in 1763 to survey the eastern coasts of Canada over a four year periode. These excellent charts were used up until the early 20th century. In 1768 James Cook was selected to lead an expedition to observe the transit of Venus as well as to explore new lands in the Pacific Ocean. In his first Pacific voyage, he rounded Cape Horn in the Endeavour reaching Tahiti on 3 June 1769. The transit of Venus was successfully observed after recovering a necessary scientific instrument stolen by the natives. The Endeavour then spent six months charting New Zealand. Next Cook explored and claimed possession of eastern Australia. The crew suffered an appalling 43% fatality rate after returning to England, on 12 June 1771, via New Guinea, Java and the Cape of Good Hope. James Cook thus became very concerned about crew health on subsequent voyages. He instituted compulsory dietary reforms that were copied by several other ship captains. The reason of Captain Cook's second Pacific Ocean voyage was to confirm the existence of a theorized Great Southern Continent.

He had sailed into the Antarctic extensively and had charted the coastlines from Newfoundland to New Zealand. Cook's third voyage was organized to seek a more efficient route from England to both southern and eastern Asia without entailing rounding the Cape of Good Hope.Since the beginning of the European expansion in the later fifteenth century, the search for a Passage more Northwest or even Northeast had been on the agenda of lots of northern European mariners and merchants. Incentive for the latest exploration for this specific route was England's growing interests in India, economical as well as colonial, in the late eighteenth century. Cook, who again was in command of this Resolution, was to approach the Northwest Passage from the Pacific. The Discovery, a second ship captained by Charles Clerke, was to accompany him. After leaving England separately, they regrouped at Cape Town and went from there to Tasmania, New Zealand and also Tahiti. They then continued to sail north and made landfall at the Christmas Island and Hawaiian Islands. Cook went further northward and charted the American west coast from northern California as far as the Bering Strait. When he returned to Hawaii for the winter, he was killed in an encounter with natives on February 14, 1779. Clerke took over the command of the expedition after Cook's death, but died several months later in August. Both ships returned to England in 1780, commanded by John Gore who had taken over the Discovery after Cook's death. The voyage had lasted a total of more than four years from start to finish. James Cook James Cook was born on 7 November 1728 in the Yorkshire village Marton. His father was a poor Scottish farm labourer, who had worked his way up to supervisor. James also began as a farm labourer and grocer's assistant. Soon he found employment in a Collier on the Baltic Sea. During the Seven Year's War in 1755, he volunteered for service and enlisted as an able seaman on the Eagle. He was promoted to master's mate under Captain Joseph Hamar within a month due to his outstanding ability. About four years later he had passed his master's examinations. James Cook, commanding his own ship, performed a very crucial charting and mapping of the Saint Lawrence River making the great amphibious assult upon Quebec City in 1759 possible. He was given command of the schooner Grenville in 1763 to survey the eastern coasts of Canada over a four year periode. These excellent charts were used up until the early 20th century. In 1768 James Cook was selected to lead an expedition to observe the transit of Venus as well as to explore new lands in the Pacific Ocean. In his first Pacific voyage, he rounded Cape Horn in the Endeavour reaching Tahiti on 3 June 1769. The transit of Venus was successfully observed after recovering a necessary scientific instrument stolen by the natives. The Endeavour then spent six months charting New Zealand. Next Cook explored and claimed possession of eastern Australia. The crew suffered an appalling 43% fatality rate after returning to England, on 12 June 1771, via New Guinea, Java and the Cape of Good Hope. James Cook thus became very concerned about crew health on subsequent voyages. He instituted compulsory dietary reforms that were copied by several other ship captains.

originalKupferstich von ca. 1780 - aus dem Atlas von James Cook's dritter Reise | original copper engraving from circa 1780 out of the atlas from James Cook's third voyage - Blattmasse ca.49 x25,5 cm - gut erhalten. - in very good condition. | | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------ ---------- Cook's Third Voyage (1776-1779) During his first and second voyage, Cook circumnavigated the globe twice. He had sailed into the Antarctic extensively and had charted the coastlines from Newfoundland to New Zealand. Cook's third voyage was organized to seek a more efficient route from England to both southern and eastern Asia without entailing rounding the Cape of Good Hope.Since the beginning of the European expansion in the later fifteenth century, the search for a Passage more Northwest or even Northeast had been on the agenda of lots of northern European mariners and merchants. Incentive for the latest exploration for this specific route was England's growing interests in India, economical as well as colonial, in the late eighteenth century. Cook, who again was in command of this Resolution, was to approach the Northwest Passage from the Pacific. The Discovery, a second ship captained by Charles Clerke, was to accompany him. After leaving England separately, they regrouped at Cape Town and went from there to Tasmania, New Zealand and also Tahiti. They then continued to sail north and made landfall at the Christmas Island and Hawaiian Islands. Cook went further northward and charted the American west coast from northern California as far as the Bering Strait. When he returned to Hawaii for the winter, he was killed in an encounter with natives on February 14, 1779. Clerke took over the command of the expedition after Cook's death, but died several months later in August. Both ships returned to England in 1780, commanded by John Gore who had taken over the Discovery after Cook's death. The voyage had lasted a total of more than four years from start to finish. James Cook James Cook was born on 7 November 1728 in the Yorkshire village Marton. His father was a poor Scottish farm labourer, who had worked his way up to supervisor. James also began as a farm labourer and grocer's assistant. Soon he found employment in a Collier on the Baltic Sea. During the Seven Year's War in 1755, he volunteered for service and enlisted as an able seaman on the Eagle. He was promoted to master's mate under Captain Joseph Hamar within a month due to his outstanding ability. About four years later he had passed his master's examinations. James Cook, commanding his own ship, performed a very crucial charting and mapping of the Saint Lawrence River making the great amphibious assult upon Quebec City in 1759 possible. He was given command of the schooner Grenville in 1763 to survey the eastern coasts of Canada over a four year periode. These excellent charts were used up until the early 20th century. In 1768 James Cook was selected to lead an expedition to observe the transit of Venus as well as to explore new lands in the Pacific Ocean. In his first Pacific voyage, he rounded Cape Horn in the Endeavour reaching Tahiti on 3 June 1769. The transit of Venus was successfully observed after recovering a necessary scientific instrument stolen by the natives. The Endeavour then spent six months charting New Zealand. Next Cook explored and claimed possession of eastern Australia. The crew suffered an appalling 43% fatality rate after returning to England, on 12 June 1771, via New Guinea, Java and the Cape of Good Hope. James Cook thus became very concerned about crew health on subsequent voyages. He instituted compulsory dietary reforms that were copied by several other ship captains. The reason of Captain Cook's second Pacific Ocean voyage was to confirm the existence of a theorized Great Southern Continent. His ship the Resolution, which was accompanied by the Adventure, departed Plymouth on 13 July 1772 and again sailed around the Cape of Good Hope. Beset by ice, he unfortunately wasn't able to reach Antarctica. Although its existence was suspected, James Cook demonstrated, by traversing large areas of the south Pacific, that it would have to be a frigid wasteland, and not an economically productive addition to the British empire. With the incredible accuracy of only 3 miles James Cook charted many of the South Pacific Islands. This incredible accuracy was made possible by a new and highly accurate clock. Both ships returned to England on 29 July 1775, via Cape Horn. The experimental diets and close attention to cleanliness had a miraculous effect: out of a crew of 118, only one man was lost to disease. The many paintings by the artists were widely displayed and published as engravings, due to high public interest. Furthermore James Cook was awarded the Copley Gold Medal and elected as a fellow of the Royal Society. The third and last great voyage is significantly important to the history of the west coast of North America. Primarily Captain Cook and his men were searching for the Northwest Passage from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean. The ships both sailed around the Cape of Good Hope to reach the west coast of America in February of 1778. They continued north along the coast in haste to the Bering Sea and Bering Strait in an attempt to pass through the Arctic Ocean during the summer season. Foiled by ice, James Cook returned to Hawaii to prepare for another attempt at the Northwest Passage in the next season. A storm damaged the foremast of the Resolution soon after they had departed and forced them to return to Kealakekua Bay for repairs. Unfortunately, they had previously overstayed their welcome and relations became tense. The theft of a ship's cutter led Captain Cook to. Artikel-Nr.: 129076.

The charts and sailing directions which Cook completed in Newfoundland and later on the St Lawrence, along with his observations of a solar eclipse as communicated to the Royal Society, were largely responsible for securing Cook the command of HMS Endeavour (Holmes). Newfoundland played a particularly important role in the British economy. It was seen as a great wharf moored in the ocean, perfectly situated for the cod-fishery and as essential as the fishing banks themselves to the welfare of fisherman (cf. Beaglehole, The Life of Captain James Cook). Under the Treaty of Paris (10 February, 1763), which ended the French and Indian War (and the Seven Years War), Britain gained huge swathes of territory in North America with France ceding the Eastern portion of Louisiana, stretching from the Mississippi all the way to the Appalachians, whilst also recognising British sovereignty in Canada. However, the islands of St Pierre and Miquelon off the coast of Newfoundland, along with the right to land and dry their catch on parts of the coastline of Newfoundland, were returned to France in perpetuity. The Lords of the Admiralty 'thought fit to appoint Mr James Cook, a Person well skilled in making surveys . to go to Newfoundland . in order to be employed in making surveys of the Coast & Harbours of that Island, and in making Drafts and Charts thereof.' (Beaglehole, The Life of Captain James Cook, p67). Cook's first task, on a salary of ten shillings a day, was to survey St Pierre and Miquelon before they were handed back to the French. Forcing the French governor designate of the islands to remain on board his ship with his troops until 4th July when the survey of St Pierre was completed. Cook was then supplied with a ship (the Grenville, a 68-ton schooner built in Massachusetts in 1754) and he proceeded to the North of the island. The work was undoubtedly arduous, with many harbours being frozen from Christmas until June, and great plagues of flies and mosquitos in the brief summer months on land, although 'Cook was to carry out many accomplished pieces of surveying, in one part of the world or another, nothing he ever did later exceeded in accomplishment this surveys of the southern and western sides of Newfoundland from 1763 to 1767 (Beaglehole, The Life of Captain James Cook, p69). Beddie, 1928 (chart only); Holmes, 1. Artikel-Nr.: 98118.

The reason of Captain Cook's second Pacific Ocean voyage was to confirm the existence of a theorized Great Southern Continent. His ship the Resolution, which was accompanied by the Adventure, departed Plymouth on 13 July 1772 and again sailed around the Cape of Good Hope. Beset by ice, he unfortunately wasn't able to reach Antarctica. Although its existence was suspected, James Cook demonstrated, by traversing large areas of the south Pacific, that it would have to be a frigid wasteland, and not an economically productive addition to the British empire. With the incredible accuracy of only 3 miles James Cook charted many of the South Pacific Islands. This incredible accuracy was made possible by a new and highly accurate clock. Both ships returned to England on 29 July 1775, via Cape Horn. The experimental diets and close attention to cleanliness had a miraculous effect: out of a crew of 118, only one man was lost to disease. The many paintings by the artists were widely displayed and published as engravings, due to high public interest.

originalKupferstich von ca. 1785 - aus dem Atlas von James Cook's dritter Reise | original copper engraving from circa 1785 out of the atlas from James Cook's third voyage - Blattmasse ca.20,5 x27 cm - gut erhalten. - good condition. | | ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------ -- Cook's Third Voyage (1776-1779) During his first and second voyage, Cook circumnavigated the globe twice. He had sailed into the Antarctic extensively and had charted the coastlines from Newfoundland to New Zealand. Cook's third voyage was organized to seek a more efficient route from England to both southern and eastern Asia without entailing rounding the Cape of Good Hope.Since the beginning of the European expansion in the later fifteenth century, the search for a Passage more Northwest or even Northeast had been on the agenda of lots of northern European mariners and merchants. Incentive for the latest exploration for this specific route was England's growing interests in India, economical as well as colonial, in the late eighteenth century. Cook, who again was in command of this Resolution, was to approach the Northwest Passage from the Pacific. The Discovery, a second ship captained by Charles Clerke, was to accompany him. After leaving England separately, they regrouped at Cape Town and went from there to Tasmania, New Zealand and also Tahiti. They then continued to sail north and made landfall at the Christmas Island and Hawaiian Islands. Cook went further northward and charted the American west coast from northern California as far as the Bering Strait. When he returned to Hawaii for the winter, he was killed in an encounter with natives on February 14, 1779. Clerke took over the command of the expedition after Cook's death, but died several months later in August. Both ships returned to England in 1780, commanded by John Gore who had taken over the Discovery after Cook's death. The voyage had lasted a total of more than four years from start to finish. James Cook James Cook was born on 7 November 1728 in the Yorkshire village Marton. His father was a poor Scottish farm labourer, who had worked his way up to supervisor. James also began as a farm labourer and grocer's assistant. Soon he found employment in a Collier on the Baltic Sea. During the Seven Year's War in 1755, he volunteered for service and enlisted as an able seaman on the Eagle. He was promoted to master's mate under Captain Joseph Hamar within a month due to his outstanding ability. About four years later he had passed his master's examinations. James Cook, commanding his own ship, performed a very crucial charting and mapping of the Saint Lawrence River making the great amphibious assult upon Quebec City in 1759 possible. He was given command of the schooner Grenville in 1763 to survey the eastern coasts of Canada over a four year periode. These excellent charts were used up until the early 20th century. In 1768 James Cook was selected to lead an expedition to observe the transit of Venus as well as to explore new lands in the Pacific Ocean. In his first Pacific voyage, he rounded Cape Horn in the Endeavour reaching Tahiti on 3 June 1769. The transit of Venus was successfully observed after recovering a necessary scientific instrument stolen by the natives. The Endeavour then spent six months charting New Zealand. Next Cook explored and claimed possession of eastern Australia.
