Sketch of a bison
No. 37 of 74 (PAJ1976 - PAJ2049). While this drawing has the appearance of an American bison it is not clear how Bray could have seen one and it is more probably African, and sketched on one of his West African voyages in the years 1775-77. It is one of 73 drawings by Bray (plus one signed 'NF 1782') preserved in a 19th-century album that was purchased for the Museum by the Macpherson Fund of the Society for Nautical Research in April 1991. They have now been separately remounted. Bray (1750-1823), was second lieutenant of the 44-gun 'Pallas' under Captain the Hon. William Cornwallis (1744-1819)
