Engraving. 270 x 230mm, 10½ x 9".
A coastline profile and chart of Adventure Bay on the south coast of Tasmania. Captain Tobias Furneaux named the bay after his ship HMS Adventure, having stayed there for five days in 1773, having being separated from from Cook during his second circumnavigation. However these were sketched (possibly by William Bligh) during Cook's Third Voyage, 1776-1780. Engraved by Bénard for a French edition of the Official Account of Cook's Voyages.
