"Discovering Cook's collections focuses on the collections of art and material culture brought back from the Pacific on Captain Cook's voyages ... The essays explore the history of the collections, their dispersal through the museums and private collections of Europe and the different ways in which they have been interpreted over time."--Back cover.
