Description

Nice example of this highly desireable engraving of a native Hawaiian man dancing. 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.
