Ship Cove [Meretoto] - "very snug cove" according to Cook, "The number of Inhabitants hardly exceeds 3 or 400 people, they leive (sic) dispers'd along the Shores in search of their daly (sic) bread, which is fish and firn (sic) roots for they cultivate no part of the lands". (Journals of Captain Cook, 6 February, 1770). A very early European depiction of waka and whare by Cook’s official artist on his third voyage to the Pacific. Reprinted by Avon Fine Prints.
