Publish'd Decr. 14th 1781, by G. Robinson.
Copper engraving, 175 x 105mm. 7 x 4¼". A very fine impression.
A native of Alaska. From 'An authentic narrative of a voyage performed by Captain Cook and Captain Clerke, in His Majesty’s ships Resolution and Discovery during the years 1776, 1777, 1778, 1779 and 1780 : in search of a North-West passage between the continents of Asia and America…', by William Ellis, published 1782. Ellis was a surgeon's mate during Cook's third voyage, first on the Discovery and later on the Resolution, and gives quite a good history of this expedition. His account was published two years before the 'official' version. Ellis was also an amateur artist of some skill and the illustrations in the book are after his own drawings; they include eight of Hawaii, two of Alaska and three of the Northwest Coast.

Engraving. Collector's mark verso bottom right; 242 x 278mm (9½ x 11"). Trimmed.
Native of Unalaska, Alaska in canoes, from a French edition of James Cook's Third Voyage. Captain James Cook, explorer, cartographer and hydrographer went to command several notable voyages, the first was from 1768-1771. He was led to his commission by the direction of British overseas exploration in 1766 as commander of HM Endeavour for the first of three Pacific voyages. Cook's journals were published upon his return, and he became something of a hero among the scientific community. Cook's 12 years sailing around the Pacific Ocean contributed much to European knowledge of the area.

Engraving. 390 x 560mm, 15½ x 22". Crease through middle.
A temporary settlement in Lituya Bay, Alaska (now part of the Glacier Bay Park & Wilderness), used for the fishing season. In 1785 Jean-Francois de Galaup, comte de La Pérouse (1741-88) was sent by the French to continue Cook's exploration work in the Pacific, in the ships 'Astrolabe' & 'Boussole'. After three years, during which time he visited Chile, California, Alaska, Kamchatka, the Philippines, Japan and Hawaii, he travelled to Australia. Outside Botany Bay he met up with Captain Arthur Phillip's First Fleet, after which he set sail and was never seen again, despite an extensive rescue mission. Fortunately La Pérouse took every oportunity to send his work back to France: one crew member disembarked in Kamchatka and spent a year crossing Siberia back to France; later journals, charts and letters he left with the British at Botany Bay. Thus his discoveries were not lost with him, but published posthumously in this work, 'Voyage de la Perouse autour du monde..'.

Some of La Perouse's crew in trouble in the icy waters of Lituya Bay, Alaska (now part of the Glacier Bay Park & Wilderness), after the capsizing of two cutters, resulting in twenty-one deaths. In normal circumstances the waters are incredibly dangerous, with the spill of three glaciers entering the bay and a tidal difference of 10 feet; but in 1958 a megatsunami was recorded in the bay that destroyed trees to a height of 1,720 feet above sea-level, signifying a wave higher than the Empire State Building.
