Beaglehole’s monumental work of scholarship stands as one of the greatest achievements in voyage history.  The text of the journals provides the reliable and authoritative narrative of Cook’s three voyages.Volume Three Part One contains Cook’s journal from February 1776 until October 178o but is missing the supplementary extracts from journals or logs by James King, Charles Clerke, James Burney, Richard Gilbert, Thomas Edgar. These presumably comprise Volume Three Part Two.
