Formac, Halifax, 2011, ISBN:9780887809200 2011 0887809200 / 9780887809200 
LOCKETT, Jerry. Captain James Cook in Atlantic Canada : The Adventurer and Map Maker's Formative Years. Halifax : Formac Publishing Company Limited, (2010). First Edition. Pp. (6),[7]-198,(2). Illustrated with maps, drawings, etc in the text. 8vo, brown cloth with gilt lettering to front and spine.

Jerry Lockett (b. 1950, London, England) writer, photographer, and film-maker, residing in Halifax.

This book won the 2011 Dartmouth Book Award for Non-Fiction.

"In 1758 the young James Cook arrived in Nova Scotia as a competent, if undistinguished, warrant officer in Britain's Royal Navy. By the time he left the shores of eastern Canada nine years later he had acquired the skills and a reputation that made him an obvious choice to lead a voyage of exploration to the far side of the world.

How did this man of humble origin, who received hardly any formal education, learn his craft?

In Atlantic Canada Cook encountered influential men who would become his mentors and patrons. He witnessed the devastating effects of scurvy, perfected his navigation and seamanship and mastered the arts of surveying, hydrography and cartography. He saw action at Quebec and Louisbourg, and during long winters in Halifax he taught himself mathematics and astronomy.

Cook finally proved his mastery with a survey of the west coast of Newfoundland - a survey of such high quality that it set the standard for all who followed. This well-researched and absorbing account shows how James Cook's Canadian experience shaped the man who was to become one of the most successful explorers of all time." - from the dj.

17 De ARMOND, R.N., (ed.) COOK, James, Captain SIMPSON, George, Sir PORTLOCK, Nathaniel, Captain Early Visitors to Southeastern Alaska : Nine Accounts
Alaska Northwest Publishing, Anchorage, Alaska, Anchorage, Alaska, 1978, ISBN:0882401165 
De ARMOND, R.N., (ed.). Early Visitors to Southeastern Alaska : Nine Accounts. Edited by R.N. De Armond. Wood Engravings by Dale De Armond,. Anchorage, Alaska : Alaska Northwest Publishing Company, (1978). Pp (6),[v]-vii,(3),1-214,(2). Maps, illustrations in text. 8vo, illustrated tan cardcovers, lettering in green. The accounts : Captain James Cook (1778), Captain George Dixon (1787), Captain Nathaniel Portlock (1787), Captain Richard Cleveland (1799), Captain John D'Wolf (1805-6), Captain Camille de Roquefeuil (1818),Commander Edward Belcher (1837), Sir George Simpson (1841-2), and Captain Richard Collinson (1850). "In the years after Capt. James Cook visited Southeastern Alaska on his third and last great voyage of discovery, numerous explorers and fur traders visited that coast and its myriad islands and interconnected waterways. A lew of these early visitors left detailed accounts of their experiences. R.N. De Armond has gathered a collection of nine of these personal accounts, ranging over the years from 1778 to 1850, and has provided brief introductions to each of the voyagers. In these pages the reader will find action and suspense as gripping as that in any novel, recorded with the freshness and immediacy of the actual participants. Here are intriguing descriptions of the style of life of the Natives of Southeastern Alaska, their dress, behavior, customs, their shrewd commercial instincts which were a match for any sharp Yankee or Scottish trader. The visitors relate much fascinating detail about the way the hospitable Russian officials and company lived in that most isolated capital of New Archangel. And there are always the dangers tbe captains faced in navigating their sailing ships through mostly uncharted, rock-studded channels. accounts with a series of original wood engravings."

20 HORWITZ, Tony. COOK, James, Captain). Into the Blue : Boldly Going Where Captain Cook Has Gone Before. First British Edition in dustjacket.
Bloomsbury, London, 2002, ISBN:0747560471 
HORWITZ, Tony. Into the Blue : Boldly Going Where Captain Cook Has Gone Before. (London): Bloomsbury, (2002). First UK Printing. Pp. (12),1-480,(4). Maps to endpapers and text. 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Published in the United States under the title "Blue Latitudes". "James Cook's three epic journeys between 1768 and 1779 were the last great voyages ofdiscovery. Cook explored more of the earth's surface than anyone in histor y -- sailing from the Arctic to the Antarctic, from Tahiti to Siberia, fromEaster Island to the Great Barrier Reef -- and introduced the West to an e xotic world of taboo and tattoo, of cannibalism and ritual sex. Tony Horwitz vividly recounts these adventures, and revisits the lands and peoples Cook discovered to explore the captain's legacy in today's Pacific. He also has exotic and comic adventures of his own, on land and at sea: meeting Miss Tahiti, uncovering the secret behind the red-toothed warriors of Savage Island, working atop a hundred-foot mast as a sailor aboard a replica of Cook's tall ship, the Endeavour. Horwitz also searches for Cook the man: a restless prodigy who fled farm life, and later the luxury of Georgian London, for the privation and peril of sailing off the edge of the map. In a probing,poignant and often hilarious narrative of historical adventure, the Pulitz er Prize-winning author of 'Confederates in the Attic' brings to life the captain whose voyages helped create the global village we inhabit today." - from the dustjacket.
