Sydney Parkinson

Sydney Parkinson

Sydney Parkinson, who was draughtsman to Sir Joseph Banks on Cook's first voyage with Dr Solander round the world, was the author of a work published in 1773, A Journal of a Voyage to the South Seas, in His Majesty's Ship, the 'Endeavour,' with numerous Views and Designs executed by himself. Twelve of the twenty-seven plates in this book relate to New Zealand. Parkinson himself died at Batavia of dysentry in 1771, on the homeward voyage, and the book was published by his brother Stanfleld.
