  • Views in Australia, or New South Wales and Van Diemen’s Land – Lycett Facsimile

    Views in Australia, or New South Wales and Van Diemen’s Land – Lycett Facsimile

    Delineated, in Fifty Views, with Descriptive Letter Dedicated with Permission to the Right Hon’ble Earl Bathhurst

    This is the only facsimile of the rarely seen Views by Joseph Lycett originally published in London in 1824. A landscape presentation in decorated slipcase (as shown) – fine condition. A heavy item which might require a little more postage … we will try to be helpful.

    Lycett was a convict artist of great distinction – he had been sent out for forgery. He was pardoned and later returned to England where he again went about his forger’s ways – he took his own life in prison.

    His artistry is unique and charming with 50 images of New South Wales mainly in and around Sydney and also many of Tasmania with some beautiful images of Hobart, the Derwent and the surrounding mountains.

    Voyager also has an original Lycett of a Tasmanian view … see our Prints …

    Such beautiful images originally from 1824

  • The Voyage of the Brig Mercury – Including Maria’s Islands near Van Diemen’s Land

    The Voyage of the Brig Mercury – Including Maria’s Islands near Van Diemen’s Land

    Full title … Observations and Remarks made during a Voyage to the Islands of Tenerife, Amsterdam, Maria’s Islands near Van Diemen’s Land; Otaheite, Sandwich Islands, Owhyhee, the Fox Islands on the North West Coast of America, Tinian, and then to Canton, in the Brig Mercury, Commanded by John Henry Cox …

    Illustrated with a Sketch of the Island of Amsterdam, a Plan of Oyster Harbour at the Maria Islands, with some views of the Land; a Curious Medal; and a Club accurately engraved.

    Originally published for the author Lieutenant George Mortimer of the Marines, T Cadell in the Strand et al. in 1792.

    This fine facsimile published by Israel, Amsterdam in 1975. Small quarto, 73 pages with the charts faithfully reproduced. A clean crisp copy.

    The original account of this voyage difficult near impossible to obtain. Mortimer suggests that the Voyage was chiefly undertaken from motives of curiosity by Mr Cox, the fur trade on the North West Coast of America was the ultimate objective.

    Mortimer’s narrative is a pleasing and easily read account. The visit to Amsterdam Island well to the South in the Indian Ocean, nearly Antarctic, is important to cold weather island enthusiasts. Cox had planned to call in at Adventure Bay in Van Diemen’s Land but missed it and ended up at Maria’s Island … he named Oyster Bay and the charts produced is of historical value. The progression across the Pacific to the North west Coast of America has unique elements and interesting encounters with Russians in the locale.
