Wonderful engravings from the Rev. Thomas Bankes' Geography, issued near the end of the eighteenth century. Bankes was the Vicar at Dixton, Monmouthshire, and he compiled his geography of all parts of the world, including "a Genuine History and Description of the Whole World." Also included in this work were images and reports from James Cook's three voyages, so that Bankes' volume provided as complete and up-to-date a report on the known world as was available at the time.
