. The definitive reference to Cook’s voyages and life con-

taining extensive commentary, notes, and supporting documents drawn from his surviving holo-

graph journals, along with writings of crew members and other sources. A stunning achievement of

modern textual and historical scholarship that will never be superseded and which presents for the

first time in print many sources previously available only in manuscript.

): “The first mono-

graph on the subject.” A series of four original publications on Hawaiian antiquities by the distin-

guished scientist and educator, who was the museum’s first director and established its publica-

tion program. These publications are particularly valuable for the many illustrations they repro-

duce of fragile Hawaiian cultural artifacts. The Museum remains a premier Hawaiian cultural

institution.
