    That statement is certainly true when it comes to Captain Cook. Not surprisingly, the number of such publications was much larger for the second and third voyages, once the lucrative potential of such works was demonstrated by the first voyage accounts. The dates given are those of the first publication in book form.

Robert Irwin summarises their findings: In the s and s a lot of work was done on the Nights by Zotenberg and others, in the course of which a consensus view of the history of the text emerged. Four sources come to mind - official accounts, secondary accounts, bibliographies and specialized catalogs.

    It is said that there can't be any style in a novel of adventure, but it isn't true; though I admit it is very much more difficult to write such a novel in a good literary form than the studies of character which are so vogue to-day. Almost all of the original book editions were published by Pierre-Jules Hetzel in octodecimo format, often in several volumes. However, most members will be able to acquire the catalog itself, and with that single addition to their libraries they will come as close as they probably can to being able to enjoy and appreciate the wealth of early published material about Cook. It is hardbound with a color dust jacket and measures approximately 8.
