Rare first edition on the most important voyage of the North Pacific!

 

In 1791, Royal Navy officer George Vancouver set out on an expedition to North America’s Pacific Northwest, exploring western Canada, Alaska, and parts of Northwest United States. The specifics of this voyage were published in 1801 by Stockdale, in an impressive six-volume set, which is often considered to be the most accurate account of the Pacific Northwest.

 

According to Howes, of all modern expeditions to the Pacific, Vancouver’s is one of the most important. In this work Vancouver also describes Alaskan and Canadian natives, nautical and astronomical wonders, and encounters with Spanish missions.

 

Per Hill,

“This voyage became one of the most important ever made in the interests of geographical knowledge.”
