Description :Attractive and early print of a Kangaroo, engraved from an oil painting by George Stubbs, a famous 18th century artist working in London, who used as a model a skin brought back to England by Joseph Banks, who accompanied Capt.

Engraved by François Godefroi. From the French edition of James Cook's first voyage entitled Relation des voyages entrepris par ordre de sa Majesté Britannique actuellement régnante pour faire des découvertes dans l'hémisphère méridional, et successivement exécutés par le commodore Byron, le capitaine Carteret, le capitaine Wallis et le capitaine Cook dans les vaisseaux "le Dauphin ", "le Swallow" and "l'Endeavour".
Translated by Suard and published in Paris by Saillant et Nyon - Pancoucke in 4 volumes with numerous illustrations, charts, and maps.
An Account of the voyages undertaken by the order of His Present Majesty for making discoveries in the southern hemisphere, and successively performed by Commodore Byron, Captain Wallis, Captain Carteret and Captain Cook, in the Dolphin, the Swallow, and the Endeavour , the first official three-volume account of James Cook's first voyage, was edited by John Hawkesworth in English in London in 1773. The second and third volumes are entirely concerned with Cook's voyage, based upon material drawn from journals kept by Cook and the papers of Joseph Banks. Hawkesworth composed his account in the first person of Cook and incorporated Banks's descriptions and observations as well as his own commentary, without ever distinguishing the different sources.
Condition : Very good condition. Left hand margin short, as issued.
