FANNING, CAPTAIN EDMUND
Voyages & Discoveries in the South Seas 1792 to 1832
Salem, Marine Research Society. 1924, First Thus. Hardcover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. One of the rare narratives of an American shipmaster Capt. Edmund Fanning. Sailed for the South Seas in May 1792 for seal skins then during the next 25 years made voyages to the Pacific and around the world. Discovered several hitherto unknown islands. Either commanded or acted as directive agent for almost 70 expeditions to the South Seas and China. Index. End-Paper Maps. Originally published in 1833, the First Edition is very seldom encountered. This is the first reprinting of this important account of the Pacific and Antarctic regions. A handsomely produced volume, it is however slightly marred by the omission of the last three chapters of the original work (these dealing with Fanning's recommendations for exploration towards the South Pole and the report of Pendleton's expedition) and by the incorrect bibliographical information, confusing Fanning's two books, which is given in the introduction, and was uncritically repeated by Ferguson who consequently omits the original edition of this work. Very Good/No Jacket.
