Memoirs of his own life by Tate Wilkinson( Book )

3 editions published in 1790 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In addition to being one of the leading theatrical managers and performers in England during the last half of the eighteenth century, Tate Wilkinson was, perhaps, the greatest mimic who ever lived. He had the ability to precisely imitate a person's voice, even a woman's, and also to duplicate the individual's walk, gestures, and facial features. To be "taken off" in the eighteenth century, however, was considered a serious personal insult, and Wilkinson suffered ostracism and threats of violence for exhibiting the peculiarities of others before the public
The life of Captain James Cook by Andrew Kippis( Book )

1 edition published in 1788 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissenting minister Andrew Kippis (1725-95) was a Member of the Society of Antiquaries and of the Royal Society. With this work of 1788, he was the first biographer of Captain James Cook (1728-79), although several of Cook's colleagues, including Johann Reinhold Forster in 1778 and David Samwell in 1786, had previously published memoirs of their service with him. Believing that 'his public transactions ... are the grand objects to which the attention of his biographer must be directed', Kippis draws on the official Admiralty accounts of Cook's voyages and focuses on his professional life. The book was criticised at the time for failing to convey Cook's personality and motivation, stressing his achievements without putting them in context. However, it remained the only biography for forty years, and shaped public perception of Cook as a brilliant navigator and commander, a fearless explorer and an exemplary British hero

Voyages to the coast of Africa by Saugnier( Book )

1 edition published in 1792 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A ... first-hand account of an ill-fated French expedition to explore west Africa in the late 18th century. The explorers, Messieurs Saugnier and Bresson were shipwrecked off the coast of Senegal, only to be sold into Arabic slavery, where they languished for a long time before being rescued. During their incarceration the two men learned Arabic and made many ... observations of the then rulers of Africa that are set down here. Despite their grim experiences, the two men were keen to return to Africa and the book is therefore a prospectus for other bold explorers to follow in their footsteps; and the area they traversed did indeed become France?s African empire."--Publishers website
