Captain James Cook's Voyages


Captain James Cook's Voyages to the Pacific Ocean from 1768 to 1779 provided the first views of areas he explored from the coast of North America and Asia southward through the Pacific to several islands including Hawaii, Tahiti, Tonga, New Zealand, and Australia.

These historically important and artistic copper engraved masterpieces were completed by John Webber who was the officially appointed artist for Captain James Cook's third and final voyage. During this voyage Captain Cook was killed by disgruntled natives. Webber's views of Cook's final voyage were published in England.

Some of these large rare First Edition prints are still available from Prints Old & Rare.

NOTE: Several other later editions of Captain Cook prints are also available even though there are generally smaller published by different publishers.

French copper engraving original prints published shortly after the original English prints. The pictures are the same but smaller images and the text is in French.
