Here is a wonderful book...

This is an auction for THE VOYAGES OF CAPTAIN COOK by Rex & Thea Rienits.

"The story of Captain James Cook's three historic voyages between 1768 and 1780 is one of the most remarkable in history. Rex and Thea Rienits tell how he:

* discovered and charted much of the Pacific we know today from the west coast of Canada and the Hawaiian Islands

* established, by sailing around it, that New Zealand was two narrowly separated islands and not part of a mythical southern continent

* disproved the Dutch belief that New Holland was entirely barren, by traversing the whole length of its fertile coast, so paving the way for British settlement 18 years later

* and confirmed that a strait separated New Guinea from Australia

"Excerpts from the diaries of Cook and his companions add a direct feeling of history in the making. The illustrations, of which there are 38 in full colour and over 140 in black and white, include many of Cook's maps and charts, plans of the ships, drawings and paintings by Webber, Hodges, Dance and Parkinson among others, and photographs especially taken for this book of navigational instruments of the kind used on Cook's voyages."

Large format hardback 1968.
