Descripción

Small octavo, with the half-title, early owner's names to preliminaries, contemporary navy-blue papered boards, manuscript label. A very rare edition, a Swedish-language compliation derived from both the official account of Cook's second voyage and Georg Forster's unofficial Voyage round the World.Issued the same year as Sparrman's Swedish-language Resa, the actual editor of this volume remains unknown (the Edman edition of the third voyage in Swedish referred to the editor as an "anoynme" from Finland). The work is testament to the very real interest in Cook's voyages in Sweden, in part because of their proprietorial feelings towards the important contributions of Solander and Sparrman.Beddie knew a copy in the Mitchell Library, and a copy has more recently been acquired by the National Library of Australia, but this is a most uncommon book. A few pages with some wear; manuscript label faded,; bumbed but a very good copy. N° de ref. de la librería 3806716
