"Over the men of science, the philosophers of the eighteenth century, Sir Joseph Banks' rule was as remarkable as was that of his friend Dr. Johnson over the men of letters. Some sixty years after his death, his great collection of manuscripts which had been deposited on loan in the British Museum was sold and dispersed by a dissatisfied heir. Since that date the search for the lost material has never ceased. ...]. The present book is based largely upon unpublished manuscripts, sufficient to enable the attempt to be made to trace the story of his life from the point where his Journal of his voyage with Captain Cook ends, and he stepped ashore at Gravesend to find himself of interest in London Society."-from the dj.
