Caption: Admiralty Islands. Artwork of the view from the ship, drawn during the voyage of HMS Challenger (1872-1876). The Admiralty Islands are part of the Bismarck Archipelago, to the north of New Guinea in the Pacific Ocean. The Challenger voyage, a scientific expedition, organised by the Royal Society, spent four years surveying the world's oceans. This expedition included both a photographer and an official artist (John James Wild, 1812-1900).
