letter of historic importance as it documents Cok’s inspection of a ship that was to accompany him on his third voyage of exploration

Markus Brandes discovered important James Cook autographed letter

I am very grateful for the diligence of Markus Brandes (one of the founders of www.autograph-club.org) of Konstanz, Germany for bringing two of Cook’s letters to my attention. The first was a letter of 7th May 1772 which in 1925 was in the autograph collection of Karl Geigy-Hagenbach in Basle, Switzerland. That collection was dispersed at auction in 1961 and the current location of the letter by Captain Cook is not known. More recently Markus kindly drew my attention to a letter by Cook dated 2 January 1776 which was on display in an exhibition in the Staatsbibliothek in Berlin. This is a letter of historic importance as it documents Cok’s inspection of a ship that was to accompany him on his third voyage of exploration.
