The Pike [Peak] of Teneriff bearing W 1/2 S 9 Lgs January 1775

No. 32 of 74 (PAJ1976 - PAJ2049). Titled and dated as above and signed 'AVprGB' (to the life by Gabriel Bray), on the backing paper. The drawing itself also bears the inscription 'W 1/2 S' in the top right corner. It shows the Peak of Tenerife, bearing west and half a point south at a distance of nine leagues (nine sea-miles), probably as the 'Pallas' was approaching the island, where she called in en route to Africa. This allows the drawing to be dated fairly precisely from the ship's log. 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)
