William Dampier
CHRISTOPHER LLOYD

Captain William Dampier was in turn a buccaneer, a naval officer, an explorer and a natural scientist. His travel books have inspired writers ever since the days of Swift and Defoe. He sailed around the world three times and he was the first Englishman to visit Australia. Because of his adventurous way of life and his innate curiosity, his career was exciting and fruitful. Yet for many years there has been no life of this great navigator in print.

Christopher Lloyd, Professor of History at the Royal Naval College, Greenwich, presents him as the typical sailor of Stuart times and the scientist who played an important part in the development of geography, botany and meteorology. It is Dampier the rolling stone, the ancient mariner with a gift for observation and description, who is the subject of this eventful and amusing biography.
