Author: 
George William Anderson [NEW ZEALAND; CAPTAIN THOMAS COOK; ALEXANDER HOGG]
Publication details: 
Without date or place, but taken from George William Anderson's 'A new, authentic, and complete collection of voyages round the world [...] containing a new [...] account of Captain Cook's [...] voyages' (London: Alexander Hogg, [1785]).

Roughly nine and a half inches by fifteen wide. Mounted on a piece of card, with some fraying to extremities. Somewhat aged, but a good impression of a strong, striking idealised illustration, showing a bearded warrior with a club, emerging from the undergrowth beside a tree and fast-flowing water, beside which four women (one of them baring a breast) recline with their children.
