Here is the link to the 6th of Michael Suarez's Lyell Lectures (audio 
only) at the Bodleian Library earlier this year: 
. It is focused on the history of the abridged versions and a 
perspective on their role in the market. Many of you are aware that 
Michael is the head of the University of Virginia's Rare Book School. 
Ortelius' work is the first segment of the talk, lasting about 7 
minutes. The discussion of the abridged versions of Cook's works is at 
roughly 38 minutes into the talk. There are a number of other 
works--unrelated to maps and voyages--discussed with respect to the 
overall theme of abridgements and their place in an expanding market.
