George Raper, a midshipman on the First Fleet flagship H.M.S. Sirius, appears to have made these drawings as copies of earlier watercolours and charts, as most date from some years after the events they depict.
These drawings were purchased by the National Library of Australia in 2000. They are described on a website at: www.nla.gov.au/exhibitions/georgeraper
