A coastal profile and charts of two bays on Nendö Island, the largest of the Santa Cruz Islands, part of the Solomon Islands group, as mapped by Captain Cartaret in 1767, the first time the islands had been located since 1568. Swallow Bay was named after his ship; Byron Harbour was named after John Byron, under whom Cartaret had served. The volcano shown in profile is now called Nupani. Engraved by Bénard for a French edition of the Official Account of Cook's Voyages, which included accounts of other English explorers in the South Seas.
