The tantalizing theory of a huge southern continent, ' terra Australia Incognita ' had haunted the imaginations of countless geographers throughout history. Not until the second of his great voyages in 1773 did Captain James Cook finally lay the theory to rest. The book block has very light speckling to its top, and the fore edge has a mark on it. There is also an inscription on the f.e.p A good, tight copy.
