In his hands were placed all the journals of Byron, Wallis, Carteret, Cook, and Banks; he received some personal contributions from Dr. Solander and had access to the Admiralty records. Being a litterateur he was expected to grace the narratives with sentiments and remarks of his own appropriate to the moment... He wrote the journals in the first person and so put sentiments into the mouths of the captains suited to the refinements of the age of the Noble Savage. Consequently the unique personal element of each commander is totally wanting. However, the work was one of the literary triumphs of the day" (Cox). 2. Cook, James. A Voyage towards the South Pole, and round the World. Performed in His Majesty's Ships the Resolution and Adventure, in the Years 1772, 1773. 1774, and 1775.

It was also the first scientific exploration of the South Polar Regions... Banks gave up the idea of accompanying this voyage and in his place was selected a naturalist of prodigious energy, of German extraction, John Reinhold Forster. The most meticulous pains were taken to insure scientific success of the voyage. This was the first time in history that the Antarctic Circle was crossed by white men, as well as the latitude 70 degrees south. The two ships were separated in a fog but were rejoined in New Zealand. This voyage brought to light many islands and island groups, and besides circumnavigated the globe in sufficiently high latitudes as to bring to an end the dreams of philosophers of an early day. Owing to dietary precautions, only one man died during the voyage" (Cox). - Die 63 Stiche meist plano in separatem Tafelband. 3. Cook, James u. James King A Voyage to the Pacific Ocean.
