About This Item

Honolulu: University of Hawaii Press, (1986). First Edition. hard cover. Very Good/Very Good. Honolulu:University of Hawaii Press. (1986). 1st edition. xxiv+375pp. Hardcover with dust jacket.  A very good, clean copy, with a very good, lightly soiled dust jacket. * "Narratives of voyages in the golden age of exploration in the Pacific, though fascinating reading, tend to be written by sea captains or crew members whose style often lacks literary finesse. In Adelert von Chamisso's Voyage we have the unusual phenomenon of an account by a writer who had a literary man's interest in writing and a Romantic's interest in folkways and folklore. Chamisso's charming narrative stresses the human side of this important exploring expedition and gives us valuable insights into the confrontation between European and Pacific cultures in the early part of the nineteenth century."
