James Cook and the Exploration of the Pacific James Cook and the Exploration of the Pacific Captain James Cook (1728-1779) is renowned for leading three expeditions into the vast and uncharted waters of the Pacific Ocean. He was the first westerner to survey and map New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Islands, forming the modern image of the world and finally defeating the idea of a mythical southern continent. This book documents Cooks voyages and reproduces around 500 original items collected by him and the international team of scientists and artists accompanying him. As early as the end of the 18th century, many of the ethnographic and natural history objects from diverse Pacific cultures, which were accrued during the three Cook voyages, were dispersed into various collections. Now, for the first time, they are reassembled here. The ethnographic exhibits are supplemented by magnificent paintings and drawings, which offer a fascinating insight into the explorers euphoric yet curious view of the exotic South Sea landscapes. Ship models, original sea charts and navigation instruments also provide a vivid introduction to the world of James Cooks voyages. Thames & Hudson 978-0-500-51516-7
