Summary

This second part of the Papers of Sir Joseph Banks features 30 manuscript volumes documenting voyages of discovery, 1760-1800, and the history of science. In addition to covering voyages that Banks participated in or sponsored, there are log-books and records of other important voyages of this period. Those covered include: Cook's first circumnavigation with Banks in HMS Endeavour (1768-1771); Cook's second voyage with HMS Resolution and HMS Adventure (1772-1775); Cook's third and final voyage with HMS Resolution and HMS Discovery (1776-1780); and George Vancouver's survey voyage to the West Coast of America (1791-1794). Of more general interest are the papers of James West (1704?-1772), Secretary to the Treasury (1741-1762), MP for St Albans (1741-1768), Treasurer of the Royal Society (1736-1768) and President of the Royal Society (1768-1772). West was also a great collector and formerly owned the Burghley Papers and other manuscripts from the Lansdowne Collection. Other papers illustrate the close connections between science, politics and patronage in the period prior to Banks' presidency of the Royal Society. There is also correspondence of 1768 between West, Banks and Solander relating to the Endeavour voyage.
