"Cook's Pacific Encounters brings together objects from the Cook-Forster collection of the Georg-August University of Göttingen, Germany, and materials related to Cook's voyages held in Australian collections. The Cook-Forster collection comprises artefacts collected during the three Pacific voyages of Captain James Cook. Originating from the islands of the Pacific, it is the largest identifiable collection of Cook-related objects anywhere in the world. This is the first time these unique objects, untouched by European influence, have been shown in Australia."--Publisher's description.
