Scope and content
The Journal of Cook's Voyages was published in 1777, in two volumes, and includes engravings done by many artists after drawings executed by Hodges on this second journey. The official first edition was published February 1, 1777 by William Strahan in New Street, Shoe Lane and Thomas Cadell in the Strand, London, England. This image appears in Volume One, facing page 375.
Called "Oedidee" in Captain Cook's Journals. A young native man who had previously joined the sailors but decided to stay at Ulietea. He was very upset that he could not return to his own island and Captain Cook tried to comfort him by promising to tell other ships who might visit of his whereabouts (p.375).
William Hodges was chosen by the British Admiralty to accompany Captain James Cook on his Second Voyage (1772-1775) as the official artist of this expedition.
