LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Hakluyt Society, London, 1982. Volumes 152-154 inc. Second Series. Overshadowed for nearly two hundred years in European scholarship by the literary and scientific achievements and reputation of his eldest son George Forster, the author of this journal J. R. Forster principal naturalist on James Cook's second voyage, was nevertheless recognised by many contemporaries as one of the 'universal geniuses' of the late eighteenth century. Despite Forster's diverse prodigious and sometimes brilliant output, the constant circumstances of his career and personality were such that his work was dogged by debilitating disputes and vendettas, with the result that those many longer, more epoch-making and polished works, which would have established him as the leading pioneering comparative anthropologist, linguist, geographer and zoologist of the Pacific, and a most competent student in those disciplines of Africa, North America and Europe (especially Russia) have remained only as obscure and seldom used manuscripts. Dust jackets a little scuffed otherwise nice fine condition throughout. Blue cloth covered end boards. 831pp. 220 x 140 mm
