Edited and richly annotated by Lt Cdr Andrew David, this volume offers for the first time a complete transcript of the handwritten journal kept by William Broughton on his voyage to the North Pacific (1795–1798), together with supplementary letters and the journal of Broughton's journey across Mexico (1793). Aiming to complete the work left unfinished by Cook's third voyage, Broughton surveyed the coasts of Japan, the Kurile Islands, Sakhalin and Korea, despite being wrecked on an uncharted reef off the Ryukyu Islands in the middle of the mission. An extensive introduction by Professor Barry Gough places the voyage in its historical context.
