James Aiten. Alias John the Painter.
Lond. Mag. March 177[7].
Engraving. Sheet 215 x 120mm (8½ x 4¾"). Trimmed into date on right.
James or John Aitkin (1752-77), a Scot better known as John the Painter, shown in the dock during his trial for arson attacks on British dockyards during the American War of Independence. A painter by trade, his knowledge of chemicals paint solvents enabled him to make crude incendiary devices. After attacking Portsmouth and Bristol Dockyards, causing a general panic of a large band of arsonists, he was captured, tried and hung at Portsmouth on 10th March 1777. The mizzenmast of HMS Arethusa was taken from the ship and erected at the dockyard entrance, so that the reported 20,000 spectators could all get a good view. It was the highest gallows ever to be used in an execution in England.

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.

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.

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. 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 here at Petropavlovsk and spent a year crossing Russia 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..'.

James Cook entered Prince William Sound in 1778 and named it Sandwich Sound, after his patron the Earl of Sandwich. The editors of Cook's maps changed the name to Prince William Sound, in honor of Prince William, who would later become King William IV. John Webber (1751-93) travelled with Captain Cook on the Third Voyage (1776-80) as the Official Artist of the expedition, recording the explorer's death at the hand of Hawaiian natives.

In 1820 the tensions with the Turkish Reforms grew and after two years of fighting the Ottoman forces took hold of Ioannina forcing Ali Pasha to surrender. He was asked to surrender for beheading, which he refused and continued to fight until he was eventually shot.
