There is also a set of facsimile charts taken on board the Endeavour in 1768, 1769 and 1770.

Part 2 – includes material relating to transportation, the First Fleet, nature of the country, the natives, wants of the settlement, the New South Wales Corps, the mutiny of the Bounty, Norfolk Island, the second fleet, Land Grants, and complaints of the military – many, many documents relating to the years 1783 to 1792.
