London: Alex Hogg, 1794/95. An unusual view with natives in a canoe in the foreground and 7 ships, five at anchor behind. Botany Bay looks well vegetated with bush, trees and palms making it hard to believe that it is an accurate depiction of the original, on the spot drawing.
Wood engraving, 15.3 x 19.3 cm, laid down on laid paper, some loss restored with border added. The text above image: Engraved for Portlock's New collection of voyages and travels. Libraries Australia ID 8417222. Otherwise very good condition. Item #27997
