Books from a private collection. Part 7: English voyages after Cook.

Hordern House Rare Books, Manuscripts & Paintings.

This catalogue describes English voyages after Cook, dating from Thomas Forrest's classic account of experiences in New Guinea and the East Indies (1779) to Guillemard's first hand account of his voyage in the Marchesa from Japan to the South Pacific (1886). These form part of the collection of a long-term client and friend of Hordern House, with a few additions; their collection has been assembled over several decades, with books acquired from ourselves as well as from other specialist dealers.
