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 6: July 1794-September 1795 covers:

Completed survey work on west coast of North America—Travelled south, stopping at Monterrey, various Pacific islands, and Valparaiso, Chile—Proceeded via St. Helena back to England. [Suggest a different description.]
