250th anniversary of Captain Cook's first voyage to Australia - limited edition box set available 


Melbourne University Publishing has published  a very special limited edition box set to mark the 250th Anniversary of James Cook's first voyage to Australia and the Pacific in 1770/



Here, in one accessible volume, is Ray Parkin's highly acclaimed and multi-award winning study of Captain James Cook's Endeavour. This incomparable book is a unique account of a great journey - Endeavour's voyage up the east coast of Australia in 1770 - and a remarkable re-creation of the experience of being on board ship. Parkin draws on meticulous research to reveal what the Endeavour looked like, how it sailed, how it smelled, what daily life would have been like for those on board. 

A composite log of Endeavour's voyage-extracts from journals kept by those on board-is supplemented by an interpretive commentary and explanatory charts. H.M. Bark Endeavour is an absorbing book: discursive, erudite, at times poetic, full of wisdom, insight and information.
