NOTES

General note

Inscribed on the reverse of the drawing, probably in H.F. Wickham's hand, is: "Victoria River was so named by J.C. Wickham, captain of the 'Beagle', which explored N. Australia. Other sketches and papers connected with the 'Beagle's voyages were destroyed by a fire."

CONTEXTUAL INFORMATION

Source

Presented by H.F. Wickham, ca. 1905
Transfer from B 750, Mar 2005

Administrative / Biographical history

J. C. Wickham commanded H.M.S. Beagle on a survey of the north-west coast of Australia, 1837-41. There was no official artist on board so Wickham provided some of the visual records of the voyage.
