Los Angeles: Glen Dawson, 1954. [xiv],274,pp. Original black cloth with tan cloth spine, gilt. Spine lightly rubbed, modern bookplate on front pastedown. Near fine. Three volumes bound in one. Numbers IX, X, and XXII in the Early California Travels Series. An account of Vancouver's voyage, emphasizing the portion of the trip spent along the California coastline. Vancouver, who served as a midshipman on the voyages of Cook, was placed in command of an expedition to the Northwest Coast to determine England's rights under the Nootka Sound convention of 1790. The ships of the expedition reached the Northwest Coast in 1792 and spent two years surveying the coastline, resulting in the most precise maps of the Northwest produced up to that time, or for many years thereafter. Vancouver remained on the coast until 1794, returning to England in 1795. (Inventory #: WRCAM44403)
