David Parsons of Atlanta, Georgia, has assembled an ideal collection: exceptional copies of rare and important voyage books. We are delighted to have been asked to catalogue and sell the Pacific voyage section of his library, the most valuable collection of such material to have been offered by a bookseller in modern times. Part one Dampier to Cook covers 138 fine and rare books from the late seventeenth to the late eighteenth century. Fully described and illustrated in colour throughout. 128 pages HB.
