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.
