In the days of Queen Victoria by Eva March Tappan( Book )

2 editions published in 1903 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To her own people Queen Victoria was England itself, the emblem of the realm and of the empire. To millions who were not her people the words the Queen do not bring even yet the thought of the well-beloved woman who now shares the English throne, but rather of her who for nearly sixty-four years wore the crown of Great Britain and gave freely to her country of the gift that was in her.

A voyage to the South Atlantic and round Cape Horn into the Pacific Ocean by James Colnett( Book )

4 editions published in 1798 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

British naval officer James Colnett (1753-1806) served on many voyages during his career. He was a midshipman on Captain Cook's second voyage, and in 1774, he was first to sight New Caledonia, which led to Cook naming Cape Colnett after him. Later in his career, he was in command of the fur-trading expedition that resulted in the Nootka Crisis and near-war between Spain and England. In this book, first published in 1798, Colnett gives an account of the voyage he commanded to the Antarctic in 1793. The expedition's success at charting suitable places for ships to anchor was instrumental to the development of the whaling industry in the area. This book contains accounts and maps of the islands and coastlands visited during the expedition. Among the islands visited were the Galapagos Islands, and Charles Darwin is known to have had a copy of this book on HMS Beagle
