James Cook's Journal of HMS Resolution 1772-75

James Cook

The son of a farm labourer, James Cook lacked every worldly requisite of a successful naval career in the eighteenth century. His rise to eminence owed all to merit. In one decade, he opened up the Pacific, discovery and charting hitherto unknown land and seas with masterly flair and judgement.

In his journals of these memorable voyages, Cook writes with humanity and insight about the places he visited and the peoples he encountered.

In addition to a fine reproduction of James Cook's handwritten journal taken from the original in The British Library, this volume includes a new introduction and chapters on Johann Reinhold Forster and William Hodges depicting superb reproductions of his paintings and drawings.

During the production and printing of this hand-bound facsimile edition of his second journal, Genesis took every care to match faithfully the reproduction of Cook's handwriting to the original document held in the British Library, London.
