RICKMAN, John (fl.1776-1782). Troisième voyage de Cook, ou Journal d'une expédition faite dans la Mer Pacifique du sud & du Nord, en 1776, 1777, 1778, 1779 & 1780. [Translated by J.N. Demeunier.] Paris: l'Imprimerie de Valade for Pissot, père et fils and Laporte, 1782. 8° (215 x 137mm). Half title, folding etched frontispiece and folding engraved map by Benard. (Large tear to folding map repaired with only very minor loss, occasional faint spotting.) Original marbled-paper wrappers, uncut (backstrip worn but holding). Provenance: Estrange (contemporary ink ownership inscription on title; notes probably in the same hand on inner wrapper).

AN EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAN AND FRESH, UNCUT COPY OF THE FIRST FRENCH EDITION
, second issue. Rickman (Second Lieutenant on the Discovery) managed to keep his illicit copy of his journal despite the Admiralty's orders that all logs, journals, maps and illustrations should be handed over to Captain King and sealed. Due to this injunction, the work was published anonymously in 1781 (leading to spurious attributions of the text to both John Ledyard and William Ellis), thus predating the official account by more than two years; 'the text, especially as regards details of Cook's death, differs considerably from other accounts' (Hill 1453). This first French edition is known in two states; the first is uncorrected and has no imprint on p.508, and the second, present, state is corrected and bears the printer's name at the foot of p.508. Beddie 1611; Forbes I, 45.View Condition Report
