Two Volumes. 4to. 11 x 8 1/2 inches. Unpaginated. Lists 295 lots in the Parsons Collection of Pacific Voyages, each lot is illustrated and with extensive illustrations throughout, prices realized slips for each volume laid in; text clean, unmarked. Silver-stamps dark green cloth, dust-jackets in archival mylar, illustrated end-papers; binding square and tight. Fine. Documents the dispersal of the David Parsons collection. Parson was an Atlanta, Georgia businessman who began with an interest in the novels of Patrick O'Brian and then built this collection of Pacific Voyages, beginning with the voyage of Anson, but then from English-language material to various languages, the voyages of James Cook, association copies, and books in the finest condition. A gorgeous tribute to an outstanding collection.
