Details

Genre/Form: Early works to 1800
Named Person: James Cook
Material Type: Biography
Document Type: Book
OCLC Number: 271799254
Notes: 18 parts in 1 vol. Two sequences of 216 pages. Page 216 in first sequence misnumbered 215.
"An unusual and particularly rare German popular account of Cook's third voyage to the Pacific. The account is of some interest textually, as this is not only an early version of Cook's third voyage in German, but is evidently based on Georg Forster's translation of the official account of the third voyage, with clear and sustained textual borrowing. It is notable that the anonymous editor considered the death of Cook in Hawaii to be the natural climax of the work: after detailing events at Kealakekua Bay, the work concludes abruptly with a note that 'we then continued our return voyage'.
"The work presents an interesting challenge to the bibliographer. Issued in eighteen parts, it appears to have been intended to have a plate for each of these fascicles, but only one is present here. However these popular works were often printed and published in the most haphazard fashion, so it is by no means necessary to assume that all or any of the missing plates were ever issued. Moreover, this difficulty in collating the work is compounded by the work's great rarity: it is not recorded in any of the standard bibliographies including Forbes' monumental 'Hawaiian National Bibliography', meaning that the date and place of publication, as well as the details of the plates, must remain unknown ..." -- Bookseller's catalogue.
Description: 215 [i.e. 216], 216 p. : ill. ; 16 cm.
