Description:

Rare engraving of Poulaho, King of the Friendly Islands, drinking kava. Tongatapu Island. From the French edition of Cook’s voyages.

John Webber (1752 - 1793)

Official artist on Cook's third and last voyage. The reasons for the voyage were to return Omai and explore the possibility of a north-west passage along the North American continent. Webber was required to "give a more perfect idea thereof than can be formed by written description." Webber's oeuvre from the voyage was the most comprehensive record of sights in the Pacific region ever produced.
