Views in the South Seas, from Drawings, by the late James Webber, draftsman on board the Resolution, Captain James Cooke, from the year 1776 to 1780


Date: 1808



James Webber created Pacific and east Indies views between 1788 and 1792; these were republished posthumously by Boydell as 'Views in the South Seas'. Webber had been trained as an artist in Berne and Paris, then returning to London. He produced a remarkable body of work to illustrate Cook's third voyage, and supervised the engraving.

Plates include; Queen Charlotte's Sound in NZ, the Friendly Islands, Cracatoa, Otahaite, Taloo, Kamtchatka and Macao.

The text in this work consists mainly of quotations from the official account of Cook's third voyage.

Title page in all works is dated 1808, but plate imprints are dated April, 1809, and watermark dates vary from copy to copy.
