[The Wager Mutiny: Captain Cheap shooting Midshipman Cozens] Kaptein Cheap, schietende den schieman Cozens...
[n.d., c.1750.]
Rare etching, 170 x 250mm (6¾ x 9¾"). Folds and stains.
David Cheap was captain of HMS Wager, one of Admiral Anson's fleet on his voyage around the world. However the ship lost contact during storms rounding Cape Horn and ran aground off the Pacific coast of Patagonia. Stranded, Cheap lost control of the crew and during an altercation shot Cozens in the face without warning, after which he took ten days to die. Eighty crewmen took a cutter and headed south to the Strait of Magellan, leaving Cheap and twenty men behind, expecting them to die, which all but four did. Survivors of both groups managed to return to England, and their stories caused a sensation. A Dutch copy of 'A Representation of Cap.t Cheap, Commander of the ship Wager, Shooting Mr. Cozens his Midshipman; with the Crew building their Huts after the Ship was Cast away on a desolate island on the coast of Patagonia', originally published in 'A voyage to the South-seas, and to many other parts of the world, from 1740 to 1744, by an officer of the fleet', 1745.
