Abstract

The cover of Endeavouring Banks indicates the wide array of material this book considers, including subject matter only marginally related to its subtitle. In fact, the 1773 satirical cartoon in which Joseph Banks appears as The Flycatching Macaroni—‘an amateur collector and dandy’—belies the intense detail and seriousness with which the book deals with the material collected by the young naturalist who accompanied James Cook on his voyage to the Pacific,Tahiti, New Zealand and Australia.
