Engraving with very large margins. 185 x 235mm (7¼ x 9").
A view of a very rudimentary settlement at Goulding's Harbour, a side channel of Portlocks Harbor between Sitka and Juneau in Alaska. From George Dixon's 'Voyage round the World; but More Particularly to the North-West Coast of America: Performed in 1785, 1786, 1787, and 1788, in the King George and Queen Charlotte, Captains Portlock and Dixon'. This was the account of the first commercial voyage to the Pacific Northwest, attempting to trade sea-otter fur. The crew were the first English visitors to Hawaii since Cook.
