This volume studies how during the long 18th century British incursions into the Pacific transformed Europe's knowledge of that great ocean. Before the end of the century there were British settlements in New South Wales, Nootka Sound had become a centre of international dispute, and across the Pacific traders, whalers and missionaries were following the tracks of the explorers.
