Rare engraving from the French edition of the accounts of Cook’s first voyage, published (1774) the year after the English edition (1773).

The title in the English version was:

[A View of the Island of Ulietea, with a double canoe and a boathouse.]

A double canoe (pahi) with carved figures on bow and stern. Another double canoe in the background at right and a boathouse at left.

‘There are a great number of boathouses all round the bays built with a Catanarian arch, thatched all over; and the boats kept in them are very long, bellying out on the sides, with a very high peak stern, and are used only at particular seasons’. Parkinson 74.

Sydney Parkinson (1745 - 1771)

Sydney Parkinson (17451771) Parkinson was born in Edinburgh, Scotland and from an early age his artistic abilities were noticed. He was employed by Joseph Banks in London before joining him and Daniel Solander on James Cook’s Endeavour on a circumnavigation of the globe (1768-1771) as a botanical draughtsman. During the voyage, he made at least 1,300 drawings and paintings. Parkinson was the first European to draw eucalypts. On the return voyage, he died in Batavia.
