Caption: Sydney Parkinson (1745-1771), Scottish artist. Parkinson travelled on and died during Captain James Cook's first voyage around the world (1768-1771). Parkinson is most famous for the illustrations he made during that voyage, though some of his collected works date from before that time. This artwork is the frontispiece from 'A Journal of a Voyage to the South seas in His Majesty's ship The Endeavour' (1784).
