  • General note

    This drawing is accompanied by a handwritten label, "View of Sydney / By J. Lycett / Lycett's Views of Sydney, were sent to / Earl Bathurst, with letter dated / 28th Febuary [i.e. February] 1820".
    An earlier watercolour, though similar in appearance but larger in size, is titled "North View of Sydney, New South Wales" and signed and dated, "J.L. Delind. 1820" (see V1/1820/5). It was received in the Library in 1979 and does not show the spire of St. James Church. Both drawings are similar to Lycett's published plate in his "Views in Australia ... London, 1824 (M.L. ref. F980.1/L, pl.2) though the smaller is closer.
    Formerly located at DG 43.
