Description :Map of the Northwest Coast of Alaska. by Captain James Cook (1728-1779). On his third and final voyage (1776-1780), Captain James Cook made his most valuable discovery for England, the Sandwich Islands, or Hawaii. In addition, Cook surveyed over 3,000 miles of the west coast of North America, searched to the edge of the Arctic ice for a Northwest Passage linking the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans, and verified French discoveries located southeast of the Cape of Good Hope.

Cook was an accomplished scholar and scientist as well as an adventurer, and the beautifully colored prints from this work provide a fascinating first-hand account of his major discoveries. Cook's voyages were also the first to carry professional artists, whose ethnographic drawings are reproduced here as delicately engraved illustrations.
John Webber, the artist on Cook's third voyage, worked quickly and with great attention to detail, making this the most fully illustrated of Cook's voyages. The bulk of Webber's aquatint engravings are anthropological and ethnological in subject. Considering the variety of people and places visited by Cook on this expedition, the documentation of his finds demanded of Webber and the best engravers living in England at the time a versatility second to none in the annals of the history of discovery.

Condition : Cropped margins.
