Honolulu: Hawaiian Historical Society, 1999. xxvi,174pp. Half cloth and pictorial paper boards, gilt stamped, in dust jacket. As new. "PACIFIC IMAGES features the earliest illustrations and descriptions of Pacfic peoples and cultures as they were observed on Captain James Cook's third and final Pacific voyage (1776-1780) with HMS Resolution and Discovery. Reproduced are all sixty-one plates made from the artist John Webber's drawings, plus three maps published in the rare folio atlas accompanying the British government's official report, A VOYAGE TO THE PACIFIC OCEAN (1784). Also included is the engraving of Cook's death added to the 1785 second edition of the atlas. The text describing each illustration comes from the meticulous notebooks and detailed journals kept by cook and his officers -- cartographers, astronomers, artists, and scientists."
