Summary
On the great Pacific discovery expeditions of the 'long eighteenth century', naturalists for the first time were commonly found aboard ships sailing forth from European ports. Lured by intoxicating opportunities to discover exotic and perhaps lucrative flora and fauna unknown at home, these men set out eagerly to collect and catalogue, study, and document an uncharted natural world. This book describes the adventures and misadventures, discoveries, and dangers of this devoted and sometimes eccentric band of explorer-scholars
