Entrance of Port Lincoln, taken from behind Memory Cove, from Flinders' Voyage. William Westall, A. R. A. F. L. S., John Pye.

Entrance of Port Lincoln, taken from behind Memory Cove, from Flinders' Voyage.

London: G. & W. Nicol, 1814. First edition. View on the South Australian coast from Matthew Flinders' "A Voyage to Terra Australis". Flinders was the first to circumnavigate Australia and he is credited as giving Australia its name. His narrative has become scarce and the prints are rarely seen separately. The foreground shows an aboriginal hut next to a gum tree (which looks suspiciously lush for a gum) with the hills rolling out to the South Australian coast at Port Lincoln in the background. Copper engraved print, image size 23 x 16 cm on paper 29.2 x 22.5 cm, excellent condition. Item #14012
