Cook's third voyage was organized to seek a more efficient route from England to both southern and eastern Asia without entailing rounding the Cape of Good Hope.
Since the beginning of the European expansion in the later fifteenth century, the search for a Passage more Northwest or even Northeast had been on the agenda of lots of northern European mariners and merchants. Incentive for the latest exploration for this specific route was England's growing interests in India, economical as well as colonial, in the late eighteenth century. Cook, who again was in command of this Resolution, was to approach the Northwest Passage from the Pacific. After leaving England separately, they regrouped at Cape Town and went from there to Tasmania, New Zealand and also Tahiti.
They then continued to sail north and made landfall at the Christmas Island and Hawaiian Islands. Cook went further northward and charted the American west coast from northern California as far as the Bering Strait. Clerke took over the command of the expedition after Cook's death, but died several months later in August. Robert B######xE9;nard was an 18th-century French engraver.
