Captain Cook's Endeavor Journal Online Digitised scans of 700 pages of the journal of the H.M.S. Endeavour, 1768-1771. Written by Captain James Cook. There's no transcript, so far as I can tell, and the thing is difficult to read in places, but, well, voom.
  • Has his mum backed it in wood-effect wallpaper?
  • Fantastic, thank you! It is hard to read, but it's very cool to just look at, given what it is.
  • Excellent! If the handwriting is too hard to make out, you can read some printed excerpts of his journals here: http://www.captaincooksociety.com/ccsu10.htm#journals
  • I half expected this to be yet another LiveJournal post.
  • Oh, but cool post, astb. Have some 'naners.
  • Thanks, ASTB!
  • I love you. Seriously, I've been on a Cook kick for the last few months and this is just amazing. Thank you thank you thank you!
  • Oh boy. "I was there" stuff is the best of the web. I'm printing this out for the weekend - thank you!
