A voyage of discovery to the North Pacific ocean and round the world : in which the coast of north-west America has been carefully examined and accurately surveyed ; undertaken by His Majesty's command principally with a view to ascertain the existence of any navigable communication between the North Pacific and North Atlantic oceans; and performed in the years 1790, 1791, 1792, 1793, 1794 and 1795, in the Discovery sloop of war, and armed tender Chatham, under the command of Captain George Vancouver ... in six volumes by George Vancouver( Book )

75 editions published between 1798 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first octavo edition is now almost as rare as the first edition, and has the advantage of including the definitive, corrected version of the text. The account was completed by George Vancouver's brother John, assisted by Captain Peter Puget, George having died before the work was finished. Vancouver's account of his voyage was first published in 1798 in 4 volumes (3 volumes of quarto text and 1 folio atlas volume). The text contained 1 engraved chart and 17 engraved plates, the atlas volume 10 folding engraved charts and 6 engraved plates of coastal profiles. For the present octavo edition, corrections were made to the text, and all 17 plates from the text volumes were reprinted using the original printing plates. There are only two folding charts included because the printing plates for the chart from the first edition text volumes, and the charts and plates in the first edition atlas were lost, and the decision was made to re-engrave only two charts."--Sotheby's website
