    This attractive engraving from Cook's third and final voyage shows a Hawaiian war canoe filled with men wearing ceremonial gourd helmets and feather headdresses in the Kealakekua Bay. Cook explored Hawaii before heading north to explore the Pacific coast, where he tracked past the Bering Strait before being turned back by ice. The expedition then sailed south to Hawaii, where Cook was killed in a dispute with the natives at Karakakooa Bay on February 14th, 1779. Clerke, his second-in-command, took over the expedition and they surveyed further in Hawaii before returning north to continue the exploration for the Northwest Passage. Engraved by J.G. Wooding.

Condition Description: Minor soiling and a short edge tear that just enters the image at top.
