  • Cook the Discoverer – George Forster

    Small quarto, number six in the prestigious Maritime series published by Hordern House in 2007. Limited to 1050 copies, 276 pages, bound in quarter tan kangaroo with speckled papered sides. Fine condition as new.

    The book includes a facsimile of the original book published in the German language with a new English translation to follow. Copious notes and a good bibliography the whole supported by an excellent introduction by Nigel Erskine, Curator of Explorations at the Australian National Maritime Museum.

    It was eight years after the death of Cook that Forster completed his essay on the great man Cook der Entdecker (Discoverer). Partly written as an introduction to Forster’s own translation of Cook’s Third Voyage. Foster had participated in Cook’s second Voyage along with his father who had taken over as naturalist with Joseph Banks dropping out. Forster displays a true understanding of the character of Cook and that alone makes his viewpoint worthy of this sumptuous presentation by Hordern House.

    Forster required reading for all Cook followers

  • The HMS Challenger Expedition 1872-1876 Centenary Celebration of Visit Tristan da Cunha – Mint Stamp Set

    The HMS Challenger Expedition 1872-1876 Centenary Celebration of Visit Tristan da Cunha – Mint Stamp Set

    The British protectorate of Tristan da Cunha in the South Atlantic is the most remotely populated place in the world. There is no airstrip or internet and the population is circa 300. They rarely get visitors. The main island is Volcanic and an eruption in the 1960’s saw the whole population leave for a couple of years and live temporarily in the UK. The main island is 38 square miles and the main endeavour unsurprisingly is fishing.

    The mint stamp set issued in 1973 comprising 4,5, 7 1/2 and 12 1/2 pence and show the Challenger, the Pinnace off Nightingale Island, World map of the Voyage and the Onboard laboratory as well as schematics of deep sea sounding apparatus.

    Postage will be reduced appropriately to cost on charging.

    A nice commemorative set aligned to the Challenger Expedition
