His Majesty's Bark Endeavour. The story of the ship and her people Macarthur, Antonia. 1997

 

Carr 1983His Majesty's Bark Endeavour. The story of the ship and her people
By Antonia Macarthur, was published in 1997 by Angus & Robertson (ISBN 0-207-19180-8).
This book describes the background to the voyage and what happened during it. Unusually it contains a ship's crew list that has biographical details of the men, and a list of the nine Endeavour journals (none by Cook) held in the Public Records Office at Kew, London. 86 pages with 73 illustrations: the familiar, the unusual; photos of the replica and specially drawn sketches. I have read many books, but I still learnt something new!
Reviewer: Ian Boreham
Originally published in Cook's Log, page 1418, volume 20, number 3 (1997).
