About This Item

London: C.Cooke, 1793. Undated circa 1793. The content based on information received up until 1793. 6+990pp+2 - 88 plates, 22 maps. Whilst the scope purports to be the genuine history and description of the Whole World, such was the importance of Cook's discoveries that the first 106pp incorporating 25 plates and three maps is taken up with Cook's voyages. To this is included a particular description of the improved state of the New Colony formed at Port Jackson and Norfolk Island, where the convicts are now settled, and an account of the excursions and discoveries made in the interior parts of New Holland. Altogether this is a gargantuan production with stunning plates and maps. Contemporary full calf, superbly rebacked with the original spine relaid. Photographs available on request.. Contemporary Full Calf. Very Good. 385x235mm.
