Journal of Joseph Banks, HMS Endeavour October 6th – October 10th 1769

Joseph Banks was one of a pair of men made famous by HM Bark Endeavour 's voyage to the Pacific in 1769. That voyage which deserves the description of the first true scientific expedition in World History was unlike any circumnavigation before or since and was conducted with combination of maritime expertise and scientific enthusiasm for which Banks supplied the enthusiasm. That Banks ruined his chance for greater glory under the influence of the fame this voyage gained him is regrettable but his personality was such that he not only retained his friends and garnered fame at home and is why he deserves to be both respected and admired.
