Summary
  • "The Captain James Cook collection of Bob and Mary Anne Parks is a landmark of its kind, and represents the finest such collection offered. This comprehensive and extensively illustrated catalogue will undoubtedly become one of the standard reference works on the subject. The catalogue includes highlights such as: an extraordinary original letter by Cook, entirely in his own hand, asking for the return of a press-ganged sailor; Joseph Banks's engraved map of Cook's first voyage, the first map of the east coast of Australia, and never before offered for sale; magnificent engraved portraits of Cook, Banks, Omai and others; an original manuscript map from Cook's surveying of Newfoundland; and all of the major recorded engravings of the death of Captain Cook, among others."--From the publisher.
