"The third voyage, on which Cook sailed in 1776, was directed to the Northern Hemisphere. Its objective was the discovery of 'a Northern Passage by sea from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean - the North-west Passage, sought since the 16th century, which would have transformed the pattern of world trade. The search was to take Cook into high latitudes where, as in the Antarctic, his skill in ice navigation was tested.

"Sailing north from Tahiti in 1778, Cook made the first recorded discovery of the Hawaiian islands. On March 7, he sighted the Oregon coast in 44 o N. The remarkable voyage which he made northward along the Canadian and Alaskan coasts and through Bering Strait to his farthest north in 70 o nearly disproved the existence of a navigable passage towards the Atlantic and produced charts of impressive accuracy.

Returning to Hawaii to refit, Cook met his death in a clash with natives as tragic as it seems unnecessary. Dr. Beaglehole discusses, with sympathy and insight, the tensions which led Cook, by then a tired man, into miscalculations alien to his own nature and habits.

The volume and vitality of the records, both textual and graphic, for this voyage surpass those even for Cook's second voyage. Dr. Beaglehole prints the full text of Cook's own holographic journals, followed by those of Captains Clerke and King for the course of the voyage after Cook's death. The surgeons Willian Anderson and David Samwell, both admirable observers, lefy journals which are also here printed in full for the first time. The documentaion is completed, as in the previous volumes, by appendixes of documents and correspondence and by reproductions of original drawings and paintings mainly by John Webber, the artist of the expedition.

In Dr. Beaglehole's words, 'no one can study attentively the records of Cook's third, and last, voyage, without being convinced that it was of the same order of greatness as its two predecessors'. Even if it failed in the object set out in Cook's instructions, it made an extraordinary contribution to geographical knowledge; and it embraces both intellectual and psychological drama. In presenting the materials dor understanding this voyage, Dr. Beaglehole shows no less amstery and perceptivness than in his earlier volumes." - from the jacket flap.
