James Cook's Voyages

[ World Explorations home page | Antique Maps home page ]


James Cook (1728-1779), was one of the greatest explorers of any age. These prints are from his three voyages to the Pacific (1768-1779). Cook's first two expeditions were launched in an attempt to find the great southern continent (Antarctica) which was generally believed to exist but which had yet to be discovered. Cook was unsuccessful in his search for this continent, but his discovery of many new lands and his gathering of much scientific information on the Pacific Ocean made these voyages some of the most important in history. These prints and maps provide contemporary and accurate images from this great episode in the exploration of our world.
