A representation of the interview between Commodore Byron and the Patagonians (without title)

Vice Admiral John Byron accompanied George Anson on his circumnavigation of the globe (via the Falkland Islands and through the Pacific) in the 1760s. Byron was published (along with Captain James Cook and Joseph Banks) by John Hawkesworth. Byron's mention of signs of a southern continent encouraged the immediate preparation of another expedition to the Pacific. In this work, Byron is meeting the inhabitants of Tierra del Fuego, Patagonia.
