This is an auction for JAMES COOK AND NEW ZEALAND by A Charles & Neil C Begg.

JAMES COOK AND NEW ZEALAND covers the three voyages of Captain Cook:

* The voyage of the Endeavour 1768-1771

* The voyage of the Resolution and Adventure 1772-1775

* The voyage of the Resolution and Discovery 1776-1780

From the Foreword:

"This book will give its readers a good idea of the activities of James Cook on the coasts of New Zealand. They will do well to study the illustrations here given, too, for no voyage before that of the ENDEAVOUR was so fully and accurately pictured as hers was. The present authors have worked hard on the material in the ordinary way. They have done more than that - and this I find admirable: they have put sweat and acuteness into their field work, have followed their own example in Dusky Sound, have gone out to sea and looked at the coastline as Cook looked, have climbed his hills and have taken his charts to the top of them. There is no substitute for this sort of field work in studying the history of discovery."

Large format hardback 1970.
