2018 marks the 250th anniversary of Captain Cook setting sail in one of the greatest voyages of discovery of all time aboard HMS Endeavour with 100 men including astronomers, artists and scientists. The stunning Captain Cook and the Endeavour Voyage Presentation Pack AP449 celebrates this landmark anniversary. The expedition was an incredible success, during which Cook and his men initiated the first European contact with Eastern Australia, mapped New Zealand and observed the transit of Venus.
The Captain Cook and the Endeavour Voyage Presentation Pack takes an in depth look at the discoveries during the three year voyage and how it revealed unprecedented information about the lands, peoples, flora and fauna of the Pacific, and set new standards for cartography, scientific enquiry and exploration. The full colour inner looks at the planning and objectives leading to departure whilst the rich, colourful outer concentrates on the main events of the expedition.
