Bernard Smith.

The authoritative and highly respected account of how the European interpretation of what they encountered in the Pacific influenced the development of romantic taste and the scientific theory of natural selection. The work centres on the three exploration and scientific voyages of James Cook made between 1768 and 1780. During each of these extensive voyages visits were made to New Zealand and botanical and natural history specimens were collected. The second part of the book describes British aesthetic reactions to the people and landscape of Australia and the emergence of colonial art following the settlement at Port Jackson in 1788. A large heavy book.
