    An album of sketches belonging to Phillip Parker King (many by him), which relate to his surveys of the north-west coast of Australia and Tasmania between 1817 and 1822 in the vessels Mermaid and Bathurst; and of South America in 1826-1830 commanding HMS Adventure, in company with HMS Beagle. Some early caricatures by King are included. Later material in the album may have been added by P. P. King's son, Philip Gidley King.
