Wonderful original copperplate engraving by Royce for the publication of the Voyages of Captain Cook. This engraving was for the larger edition published in London by Alexander Hogg circa 1784 as A new, authentic, and complete collection of voyages round the world, undertaken by order of His present Majesty, for making new discoveries in geography, navigation, astronomy, &c. in the Southern and Northern Hemispheres, &c., &c., &c. 

Page measures 235 x 380mm (approximately 9.25 x 15 inches). There is very slight soiling and water staining of the edges of this very old page, with small remnants of early cellotape repairs and reinforcement. There are good wide borders around the engraving.
