Description

Lower left (l.l.) with brush: The “Discovery at Deptford”; label in ink in Dr Hocken’s hand: The Discovery, convict-ship, lying off Deptford. The vessel which accompanied Captain Cook on his last voyage - 1776-80. From the original, drawn & etched by E.W. Cooke in his sixty-five plates of shipping and craft, London 1829. T.M. Hocken; letter J.H. Scott to T.M. Hocken, 28 July 1898: A representation of Cooke’s plate of the Discovery in its old age. It is not a beautiful old age, I am sorry to say, but I have done my best to mitigate its ugliness without departing from the outlines of the plate.
