by Cook, Captain James

Antique Print of A Man of New Caledonia. A Woman of New Caledonia. This is one of a series of engravings of pairs of head-studies of the natives sketched during Captain Cook's voyages. 

Wonderful original copperplate engraving by J.G. Wooding 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. 
This engraved page has good wide borders all round. Page measures 235 x 385mm (9.25 x 15 inches). Narrow border at top, cropping publisher information and wide borders each side. 
There is slight external age discolouration, but overall a very good engraving.
