Nice example of this highly desireable engraving of a native Hawaiian man wearing the Gourd Helmet made famous by John Webber. From the French edition of the Official Report of Cook's 3rd Voyage. Fine wide margined example. The scene was sketched by John Webber, a talented young artist who accompanied Capt. James Cook on his third voyage to the Pacific in 1776-1780 and engraved by master engraver Robert Benard, in Paris.
