A.W. Beasley, a retired orthopaedic surgeon, of Wellington, New Zealand wrote this 80 page book based on material he compiled for the Herbert Moran Memorial Lecture at the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. It was fittingly published in the bicentenary year of the death of John Hunter.

In this book, Dr Beasley writes of John Hunter, famous surgeon, the navigator James Cook, and naturalist Joseph Banks. All three were contemporaries, and were linked - all being fellows of the Royal Society.

An interesting book to all fans of Captain Cook.
