Beschreibung

Andrew Sparrman was a Swedish physician and naturalist. He arrived in South Africa on 10 January 1772. He joined Captain Cook on the Resolution on 22 November 1772. Returning in 1775, he undertook further exploration that lasted until April 1776, taking him as far as Kaffraria - what is today the southeast part of Eastern Cape of South Africa. Sparrman's account of Cook's voyage, as well as his exploration in Africa, are described in this book. Included is a brief glossary of Hottentot language and full page plates of indigenous animals, as well as the original errata and instructions to the bookbinder. Two volumes, in a recent fine half leather binding over marbled paper boards with leather corners, raised and gilt spine bands, gilt rules, and red spine labels. The binding is nearly as-new. The contents are exceptionally clean and well-preserved, with only trivial scattered hints of spotting. The pages are bright and clean, with immaculate illustrated plates, including the striking Volume I frontispiece plate "Prospect of the Country at the Cape of Good Hope". The large folding map at the end of Volume I is also clean and intact with no tears. Sparrman's work was one of the earliest on Southern Africa and the Southern Oceans.
