Endeavour : the ship and the attitude that changed the world by Peter Moore( Book )

14 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Enlightenment was an age of endeavours. From Johnson's Dictionary to campaigns for liberty to schemes for measuring the dimensions of the solar system, Britain was consumed by the impulse for grand projects, undertaken at speed. 'Endeavour' was also the name given to a Whitby collier bought by the Royal Navy in 1768 for an expedition to the South Seas. A commonplace, coal-carrying vessel, no one could have guessed that Endeavour would go on to become the most significant ship in the history of British exploration. Endeavour famously carried James Cook on his first great voyage, visiting Pacific islands unknown to European geography, charting for the first time New Zealand and the eastern coast of Australia and almost foundering on the Great Barrier Reef. But Endeavour was a ship with many lives. She was there at the Wilkes Riots in London in 1768. During the battles for control of New York in 1776 she witnessed the bloody birth of the United States of America. As well as carrying botanists, a Polynesian priest and the remains of the first kangaroo to arrive in Britain, she transported Newcastle coal and Hessian soldiers. According to Charles Darwin, she helped Cook add a hemisphere to the civilised world. NASA named a space shuttle after her. To others she would be a toxic symbol, responsible for the dispossession of the oldest continuous human society and the disruption of many others. No one has ever told Endeavour's complete story before. Peter Moore sets out to explore the different lives of this remarkable ship, from the acorn that grew into the oak that made her, to her rich and complex legacy

In the peaceful Worcestershire village of Oddingley farmers are returning from Midsummer Day festivities, shadows are lengthening on the June grass, and the Reverend George Parker leaves his rectory to fetch his cows from pasture.

Das Wetter-Experiment von Himmelsbeobachtern und den Pionieren der Meteorologie by Peter Moore( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in German and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts galt ein Sturm noch als Strafgericht Gottes, und wer wissen wollte, wie das Wetter wird, hielt sich Frösche im Glas. Erst die unerschrockene Neugier aufgeklärter Geister vermochte es, die Dogmen des (Aber-)Glaubens hinter sich zu lassen und die Geheimnisse der Atmosphäre zu lüften. Eine Gruppe von Wissenschaftspionieren machte sich Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts daran, Wolken zu klassifizieren, die Stärke des Windes zu beschreiben und im Heißluftballon eisige Höhen zu erforschen. Manch einer zahlte einen hohen Preis dafür - Existenzen wurden ruiniert, Reputationen zerstört, Konkurrenten aus dem Weg geräumt. Anschaulich und kenntnisreich erzählt Peter Moore die Geschichte von den stürmischen Anfängen der Wetterprognose
Endeavour : the ship that changed the world by Peter Moore( Recording )

6 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A revealing and comprehensive account of the storied ship's role in shaping the Western world. The ship famously carried James Cook on his first major voyage, charting for the first time New Zealand and the eastern coast of Australia. It was a ship with many lives: During the battles for control of New York in 1776, she witnessed the bloody birth of the republic. As well as carrying botanists, a Polynesian priest, and the remains of the first kangaroo to arrive in Britain, she transported Newcastle coal and Hessian soldiers. NASA ultimately named a space shuttle in her honor. But to others, it would be a toxic symbol of imperialism. Through careful research, Moore tells the story of one of history's most important sailing ships and in turn, shines new light on the ambition and consequences of the Age of Enlightenment

The brutal murder of the Reverend George Parker on Midsummer's Day in 1806 - shot and beaten to death, his body set on fire and left smouldering - gripped everyone.
