Notes: "This important and comprehensive work brings the history of Pacific discovery down to 1764, where Hawkesworth continues it. Vol. iii contains the translation, by Rev. C.G. Woide, of Tasman's Journal, with woodcut and charts of New Zealand"--Hocken.
"The most important general history of early South Sea discoveries, containing practically everything of importance on the subject; collected from all sources, with the most important remarks concerning them, by Captain Burney, who was a great authority on the subject. Many of the early voyages to California would be inaccessible were they not herein collected. Burney accompanied Captain Cook on his second and third voyages. His access to the London literary world served to enhance the style of his great work, in which he carried the story of Pacific discovery from its beginnings through the period just prior to Cook's first voyage"--Hill.
