Hi, I can't pretend to be a massive fan of Cook but I was just hoping to get a little advise from some people who are...my husband is a mad Cook fan and I'm hoping to get him a book(one of the old ones with maps etc) for his birthday...I didn't realise there was going to be about a billion out there...so my question is...if you loved Captain Cook and you loved the very old books about Cook...which book would you most want?? Some of the ones I'm considering are:
1. NARRATIVE OF CAPTAIN JAMES COOK'S VOYAGES ROUND THE WORLD; WITH AN ACCOUNT OF HIS LIFE DURING THE PREVIOUS AND INTERVENING PERIODS: ALSO, AN APPENCIX, DETAILING THE PROGRESS OF THE VOYAGE AFTER THE DEATH OF CAPTAIN COOK.
Milner Edition. [Kippis]
2. The Explorations of Captain James Cook in the Pacific, as Told by Selections of His Own Journals, 1768-1779.
Cook, James. Edited by A. Grenfell Price. Illustrated by Geoffrey C. Ingleton
3. Captain Cook, Maclean, Alistair [1923-1987]
Thanks so much...
