‎COOK, JAMES, COMMANDER OF THE RESOLUTION‎

‎A Voyage Towards the South Pole, and Round the World. Performed by Her Majesty's Ships the Resolution and Adventure [1772-1775]‎

‎London, W. Strahan and T. Cadell, 1777. Hardcover. pp. xl, 378.4to,,A recently re-bound volume I only, of a two volume set,The first volume (of two) of the second edition, printed in the same year as the first, of Cook's second voyage, made in the years 1772 to 1775. Shortly after his return from his first voyage (1768-1771), Cook was promoted to the rank of commander and, in 1772, was directed to lead another scientific expedition on behalf of the Royal Society, ostensibly to search for the mythical land of Terra Australis. Although, on his first voyage, he had charted almost the entire eastern coastline of Australia, it was still believed that Terra Australis lay further south. Cook commanded HMS Resolution on this voyage, and Tobia Furneaux was in charge of the HMS Adventure. Cook's expedition circumnavigated the globe at an extreme southern latitude, becoming one of the first vessels to cross the Antarctic Circle. He also used a copy of John Harrison's H4 marine chronometer, which enabled Cook to calculate his longitudinal position with much greater accuracy. This copy has recently been professionally re-bound in full black cloth with morocco spine labels. The frontispiece of Cook, the title page and the famous large folding 'Chart of the Southern Hemisphere' have been professionally cleaned and repaired. All other folding charts and views have been properly re-folded with minor repairs. Contents show some foxing with off-setting from plates and 'ghosting' from folded charts etc. This volume collated and all plates etc. present. See Beddie, Bibliography of Captain James Cook 1217, Sabin 16245 and Rosove 77. A2 who notes that it contains a new notation concerning plate XXIV. Ill.: charts, engravings. 'In which is included Captain Furneaux's Narrative of his Proceedings in the Adventure during the Separation of the Ships'.‎

‎EASTER ISLAND‎

‎ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT MAP of EASTER ISLAND "Plano de la Ensenada de Gonzales en la Isla de San Carlos."‎

‎Spain: 1770. Single sheet float mounted and framed and glazed on both sides sheet size: 14 x 16 inches; 13 2/8 x 15 6/8 inches to the neat line. FINE ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT MAP OF the ANCHORAGE AT EASTER ISLAND in pen and ink and water-colour wash old vertical and horizontal folds. Provenance: early manuscript annotations on verso; with Maggs Bros Ltd. London their catalogue entry dated October 1940. A fine map showing the Anchorage at Easter Island from the 1770 Spanish expedition to claim the island for Spain. The full title inscribed above the key in the upper left-hand corner is: "Plano de la Ensenada de Gonzales en la Isla de San Carlos Alias de David situado en los 27 degrees 6' y en Long. 264 degrees Meridiano de Tenerife segun el calculo y observaciones echas en la Fragata Sta. Rosalia del mando de su Capn. Dn. Antonio Domonte que salio del Puerto del Caliao en 10 de 8bre. De 70 en conserva del No. Sn. Lorenzo hacer la descubierta y reconocimiento de della Isla" A fascinating historical document regarding the early knowledge of Easter Island and the history of its discovery by European explorers. Located in the South Pacific between Chile and Tahiti Easter Island or Rapanui is one of the most isolated inhabited islands in the world. Archeologists have proposed that it was settled sometime before the 4th century AD probably by natives from elsewhere in Eastern Polynesia perhaps the Marquesas. In any event on Easter Sunday 1722 the island's isolation ended when three ships under the command of Jacob Roggeveen came upon it and made preliminary explorations. A wild account of the time there and other adventures was published by a member of the crew Fredrich Behrens thus commencing the tradition of strange tales that have become such a major part of the literature of the island. It was not until almost 50 years later that further contact was made with the island with the 1770 Spanish expedition to Rapanui under the command of Felipe Gonzalez y Haedo. The arrival of the Spanish at Easter Island was not accidental; they were seeking to claim the island in order to prevent the English from doing so. In an elaborate ceremony complete with flags and cannon Gonzalez took possession of the "Isla de San Carlos" named for his king. However the Spanish colonization initiative went no further and the question of a claim there was never taken up but several excellent maps including the present rare example came out of the expedition. Drawn by a member of the Spanish crew this map shows the anchorage at Easter Island which was named "Ensenada de Gonzales" in honor of the captain. At the top it also includes profile drawings of the coast showing the locations of several of the famous stone figures. The map's inscription notes that it was drawn according to observations made aboard the frigate Santa Rosalia one of two ships on the expedition. [Spain: 1770]. unknown‎
