Notes

Title-page: Hunter, John, 1738-1821. An historical journal of the transactions Port Jackson, and Norfolk Island. London : Printed for John Stockdale, 1793.

This octavo condensation issued some time after the quarto edition published in Jan. 1793. It has only 4 engravings as opposed to 17, including a newly engraved title-page and William Blake's plate at page 372, which is unchanged, though now folded to fit new format. Cf. Bentley.

Title-page illustration engraved by J. Hall after a T. Stothard illustration developed from a sketch by the author.
