Descripción:

Volume 2 only (of 2 volumes). Full contemporary calf. 18mo. 4 by 7 inches. 351pp. Illustrated with engraved frontispiece portrait and 3 engraved plates (complete). First American collected edition of Cook's three voyages. It appears to be an adaptation of the text contained in Vols. VI & VII of William Mavor's "Historical Accounts of the Most Celebrated Voyages, Travels & Discoveries." (London: E. Newbery, 1796). The illustrations are a frontis portrait of Omai, a native of Otaheite; a view of Huaheine; a view of the habitations in Nootka Sound; and the death of Captain Cook. A good copy in a handsome early calf binding (perhaps original). The covers are lightly rubbed with some corner wear. The spine is split down the middle but the binding is quite secure. Internally the text is good with some foxing and spotting. Pages 335 to 344 are partially stuck together. The View of Huaheine plate is torn along the bottom but is complete. There is a bookplate at front and the early ink ownership signature of Sylvester P. Fogg of Salem in 1819. There is also an ink name at the top of the title page. Scarce. BEDDIE, 58. EVANS 31982.
