Lisiansky was the deputy commander on this first Russian circumnavigation under Krusenstern. While Krusenstern was in Kamchatka, Lisiansky took his ship the Neva to Sitka where he played an important part in the reoccupation of the settlement which had been savagely attacked by the Kolosh Indians. On the way to China, the Neva hit a reef which led to the discovery of the Hawaiian islands now bearing Lisiansky's name. The 14th chapter gives a detailed description of Canton, where he spent two months. The colored charts include a large world map as well as charts of the islands and harbors of the Alaska coast.

Very good and untrimmed, with bookplate or Sir James Campbell of Ardkinglass on front pastedown. The first English edition of this very important narrative, which includes an account of Russian expansion into Alaska. Lisianski left the Krusenstern expedition when it reached Hawaii in 1804 and sailed aboard the Neva to Kodiak, where he corroborated reports that Indians had demolished the settlement at Sitka. He then went to Baranov where he took a new hill, naming it New Archangel. After spending over a year at both Kodiak and Sitka (comprising one hundred pages of the narrative), he set sail for China, but hit a reef en route, leading to his discovery of the Hawaiian island which now bears his name. The portion of the narrative which Lisianski devotes to Hawaii is more extensive than that of Krusenstern, and his account of the Marquesas is also different. The final part of the account consists of a detailed description of time spent in Canton. Appendix 3 contains a "Vocabulary of the Languages of the Islands of Cadiack and Oonalaschca." The colored charts show islands and harbors of the Alaska coast, most notably the "Island of Cadiack" and "Sitka or Norfolk Sound," as well as a world map. The handsome aquatint views depict "Harbour of St. Paul in the Island of Cadiack" and "Harbour of New Archangel in Sitca of Norfolk Sound." A rare work on Alaska and the Pacific.
