The Death of Captain Cook Original Antique Print
Published in 1785 by Strahan & Cadell in London. Engraved by Bartolozzi and Byrne as a sentiment addendum to Cooks Last (third) Voyage, “The Death of Captain Cook” is the rarest of all Cook’s folio plates. Francesco Bartolozzi (1725-1815) was the master engraver that supervised the creation of the plates published in Cook’s Voyages. His work, as featured on this plate, is thought by many to be the best work in the entire edition.
