First edition of the narrative of Cook's first voyage. Volume I contains accounts of the voyages of Byron, Carteret and Wallis, including the discovery of Tahiti; volumes II and III contain Hawkesworth's edited account of Captain [then Lieutenant] Cook's voyage. Cook had been commissioned to observe the transit of Venus from Tahiti and to carry on John Byron's survey and exploration of the seas between Cape Horn and New Holland, and he added more than 5000 miles of coastline to Admiralty charts for Tahiti, Australia and the Great Barrier Reff and New Zealand which he circumnavigated.
