Footnotes

  • John Cleveley the Younger was employed to produce engravings from drawings made on Captain Cook's second voyage to the South Seas (1772–75). Later, John was able to gain access to drawings made from Cook's third voyage (1776-80) via his brother James who worked as a carpenter on board the Resolution. Although John had not travelled on either expedition himself, he quickly attempted to capitalize on the artistic opportunities presented by a ready market for South Seas images.
