Description Mounted in album with PAI3939-PAI4076.; Page 1. John Hawkesworth was the publisher of Captain Cook's journals from his three voyages (also publisher of John Byron and Joseph Banks). Captain James Cook (1728-1779) made three separate voyages to the Pacific (with the ships Endeavour, Resolution, Adventure, and Discovery) and did more than any other voyager to explore the Pacific and Southern Ocean. Cook not only encountered Pacific cultures for the first time, but also assembled the first large-scale collections of Pacific objects to be brought back to Europe. He was killed in Hawaii in 1779.
Date made 1 Dec 1773
