Aborigines of Nouvelle Hollande

Charming French hand-coloured woodcut depicting a man and woman of "New Holland". It was most likely printed as part of a series of costume plates, similar to those in the rare ethnographic survey prepared by Rudolf Schinz in the 1820s bringing together descriptions and images of the native inhabitants of Kamtschatka, Japan, China, Timor, Hawaii, Tahiti, Australia, North America and Africa from a number of published voyage accounts including those of Cook, Langsdorff, Kotzebue, Krusenstern and Baudin. It may be the same as a similarly-sized woodcut of the same name held in the Rex Nan Kivell collection of the National Library (NK9989).
