William Coxe

William Coxe (1748-1828) was a distinguished English historian and clergyman who also worked as a tutor for the British nobility.

Born in 1747, Coxe possessed a keen interest in the history of travel and exploration, which he combined with his scholarly pursuits. His works encompassed a wide range of subjects, including European history, travel narratives, and accounts of colonial expansion, and his contributions continue to be appreciated for their vivaciousness and accuracy to this day.

In particular, the remarkable “Account of the Russian discoveries between Asia and America” serves as an enduring testament to the spirit of exploration and the thirst for knowledge that shaped the 18th-century understanding of the world.
