Description:

Rare engraving of the Chevert at anchor at Elizabeth Bay which was used for a scientific expedition to collect natural history samples from New Guinea and the Torres Strait led and financed by William John Macleay, the first president of the Linnean Society of New South Wales.

Chevert sailed from Sydney on 18 May 1875 and returned in September that year. The expedition initially made stops at Cape York, the Palm Islands and Cape Grenville, Brookes Island and the north-west of the North Barnard Isles. By the 18 June 1875, the barque moored at Mud Bay, Queensland where it remained until 26 June 1875. Following this period, Chevert headed north to Warrior Island, and then departed Somerset for New Guinea.
