Coxe, an English priest and historian, at one time based in St. Petersburg, endeavoured to collect the journals of the several voyages relating to the area subsequent to Bering's 1741 expedition with which Gerhard Müller had concluded his account of the first Russian navigations. This work includes the main Russian discoveries made in northwestern America in their attempts to open communications with Alaska and the Aleutian Islands. The work contains valuable information on the fur trade between Russia and China.
