“The view is taken in Jervis Bay, looking seaward – Jervis Bay is a fine harbour and a favourite resort of whalers, many whales having been taken in the Bay. This drawing exhibits the general character of the entrances of the harbours of this country.” Description from an unpublished manuscript for AW Scott, ’Australian Lepidoptera and their Transformations’ (1864-1898).
