The Voyages of Pedro Fernandez de Quiros, 1595 to 1606
Three narratives of voyages to the Pacific, translated and edited. The main pagination of this and the following volume (Second Series 15) is continuous. This is a new print-on-demand hardback edition of the volume first published in 1904. Owing to technical constraints it has not been possible to reproduce the three maps original included in a pocket at the back of the first edition of the work.
