The life of Captain James Cook by Andrew Kippis( Book )

2 editions published in 1788 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissenting minister Andrew Kippis (1725-95) was a Member of the Society of Antiquaries and of the Royal Society. With this work of 1788, he was the first biographer of Captain James Cook (1728-79), although several of Cook's colleagues, including Johann Reinhold Forster in 1778 and David Samwell in 1786, had previously published memoirs of their service with him. Believing that 'his public transactions ... are the grand objects to which the attention of his biographer must be directed', Kippis draws on the official Admiralty accounts of Cook's voyages and focuses on his professional life. The book was criticised at the time for failing to convey Cook's personality and motivation, stressing his achievements without putting them in context. However, it remained the only biography for forty years, and shaped public perception of Cook as a brilliant navigator and commander, a fearless explorer and an exemplary British hero

The costume of China : illustrated in forty-eight coloured engravings by William Alexander( Book )

1 edition published in 1805 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ayant accepté en 1792 d'accompagner le duc Macartney lors de son ambassade en Chine, Alexander crée de nombreux croquis lors du voyage de retour de Pékin à Canton par voie fluviale. Aucun artiste britannique n'avait encore ramené des images de cette voie de communication à l'intérieur de l'empire chinois. Ces croquis ont ensuite servi pour des aquarelles peintes par Alexander et pour de nombreuses planches gravées par Alexander lui-même ou par d'autres artistes. Pendant plus d'un demi-siècle, ces planches ont exercé une grande influence sur des artistes à la recherche de sujets chinois (d'après Grove dictionary of art)

A complete account of the settlement at Port Jackson : in New South Wales, including an accurate description of the situation of the colony ; of the natives ; and of its natural productions: taken on the spot by Watkin Tench( Book )

6 editions published in 1793 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In May 1787 a fleet of ships carrying convicts left England bound for Botany Bay, New South Wales, where they were to establish a settlement. One of the crew on board the Charlotte was Watkin Tench (c.1758-1833), who wrote about the voyage of what was later known as the First Fleet. He remained in New South Wales, living in Port Jackson (part of present-day Sydney) from 1788 to 1791, and in this work, published in 1793, he gives a vivid, first-hand account of the early years of British settlement. The chapters are chronologically organised and discuss the many challenges settlers in the fledgling colony faced in staying alive, such as illness and lack of food and other provisions. He also recounts the often violent encounters and 'unabated animosity' between the settlers and the aboriginal people, making this work an important source on the colonisation of Australia
