Catalogue Note

Hunter served as second in command to Governor Phillip on the Sirius, in the first convict fleet, and later succeeded Phillip as Governor of New South Wales. Included here is one of the earliest views of Sydney, after a sketch by Hunter dated 1788, showing the very modest settlement that had been founded in the previous year. The plate of a New South Wales family was engraved by William Blake after a sketch by Governor King.
