1781 1ed Captain James Cook Voyage Australia Zealand Hawaii Pacific MAP Rickman"Remember, the greater the opportunity, the fewer are those who see it." – James Cook James Cook was an 18th-century British explorer known for these three major world voyages. The third Pacific voyage, which began in 1776, took Cook and his crew around New Zealand and Hawaii. On this trip, Cook became well acquainted with the King of Hawaii, Kalani-opu'u. After spending time in the South Pacific, Cook also took his ship northward to the Aleutian Islands reaching to the Arctic Circle. Cook eventually died upon his return to Hawaii, after angering the King of Hawaii.

This narrative anticipated the government's authorized account by two years. All the journals kept ... Read more

1723 1st ed ENGLISH Physics Isaac NEWTON Illustrated Optics by Rohault & ClarkeJacques Rohault was an important French philosopher during the 17th-century, particularly in the field of Cartesian philosophy.

1697 Alexander the Great Quintus Curtius Rufus Greece Latin Illustrated War RARE "Nothing can be lasting when reason does not rule." ― Quintus Curtius Rufus, Histories of Alexander the Great This famous and important work by Quintus Curtius was inspired by the celebrated Macedonian ruler Alexander the Great and was written, more than likely, during the reign of Caligula in Rome.
