Translated with a Preface by Anne Francois Joachim de Freville. Pages 113-122 omitted in pagination with text continuous. The English edition, an important collection of voyages, relating entirely to the discoveries made between South American and New Guinea. Dalrymple is also remembered for some unpleasant associations with Cook's first voyage in 1768. Dalrymple, a member of the Royal Society, well versed in hydrography and astronomy was originally selected to head the expedition, but the Admiralty preferred to place a naval man in charge and offered it to James Cook, than a lieutenant. Dalyrmple remained home refusing to serve in a subordinate capacity. HILL p.392. SABIN 18344.
