    Number 522 of a handnumbered edition of 2000
    This beautiful book illustrates Captain Cook's three voyages to New Zealand and the South Pacific by his official artists. The plates depict native flora & fauna, scenery and events such as the murder of Cook in Hawaii. Published by Avon Fine Prints in 1969 to commemorate the bi-centenary of Cook's re-discovery of New Zealand. Rectangular quarto, 125 plates (many coloured).  This is the very last one we have for sale after finding a box of  5 books when we shifted premises after the earthquakes, a significant NZ book carefully stored in pristine condition since publication.
