AUSTRALIA
[RICKMAN (JOHN)] Journal of Captain Cook's Last Voyage, to the Pacific Ocean, on Discovery, half-title, engraved folding frontispiece, folding chart and 6 plates only (of 9), occasional light spotting and offsetting), contemporary tree calf, repaired and rebacked [Beddie 1615; Forbes 106; Holmes 53], 8vo, E. Newberry, 1785

Footnotes

  • "An entirely re-edited version of the 1781 Rickman text, expanded and altered in many details to conform with the official London 1784 account of the Third Voyage" (Forbes). New plates were added and the chart was amended to correct errors to Hawaii and elsewhere. Forbes states that the plates re-used from the first edition may have run out, hence the scarcity of copies with the complete number of plates.
