Description:

These six volumes record Captain George Vancouver's voyage of discovery 1790-95 in which he primarily explored and mapped the north-west coast of North America.

Although Vancouver followed in the footsteps of Captain James Cook, his voyage ranks among the most notable such explorations of the Age of Sail. Vancouver died shortly after returning to England, and his brother John completed this publication from George's manuscripts and notes.

Volume 2 covers: Passage from Sandwich Islands (Hawai'i) to New Albion (California)—Passage northward along coast to De Fuca Strait (British Columbia)—Exploration in the vicinity of Georgia Strait and Puget Sound—Circumnavigated coast of Vancouver Island—Southward to Port St. Francisco [Suggest a different description.]
