October 1, 1771
THE LONDON MAGAZINE, England, October, 1771
* HMS Endeavour - Royal Navy
* Captain James Cook
* 1st voyage of South Pacific
Perhaps the most interesting feature is the full title/contents page which has a very intricately engraved view of the skyline of London at the time, making this very decorative.
In the review of recent publications over 2 pages are taken up with: "A Journal of a Voyage Round the World in his Majesty's Ship Endeavour in the Years 1768, 1769, 1770 and 1771." Lengthy and very detailed reporting on Capt. James Cook's famous excursion to Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere in the South Pacific. A wealth of great reading.
Two of the three plates called for are present, one being a foldout.
Complete in 52 pages, 5 by 8 inches, excellent condition.
