A H & A W Reed, Terrey Hills, Sydney - ISBN:0589502247, 1980. hardcover, 6½" x 9½", with dust jacket. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Despite his great wealth Joseph Banks turned his back on a life of ease, and as a young man sailed on a fisheries protection vessel to Newfoundland and Labrador to make the first comprehensive collection of flora and fauna from that harsh part of the world. Two years later, at his own expense he joined Captain James Cook, and sailed around the world. He also travelled widely in Great Britain and Iceland. A close friend of George III, he assisted the King in many of his scientific enterprises, and played a leading part in colonising Australia.
