William Bligh. A voyage to the South Sea, 1792.

After the mutiny Captain William Bligh and 17 of his crew were set adrift in the Bounty’s launch, a seven-metre long boat that gave no protection from the elements. Remarkably, Bligh continued to produce charts while aboard the long boat, including this one showing the North East coast of New Holland (Australia).

A voyage round the world, in His Majesty’s frigate Pandora, 1793.

The author of this book can be seen in the frontispiece portrait below. George Hamilton was surgeon on board the Pandora, the naval ship sent to track down the mutineers.
