'A Feather of the Cassowary'

Edward Kennion

Studies of a cassowary feather and native Australian fish-hooks. The latter are represented as: Figure A 'of a hard black, wood-like substance'; and Figure B 'a hook of mother of pearl'. Plate 62 from Journal of a voyage to New South Wales...by John White (J.Debrett, London, 1790). The accompanying text states that: "The feathers of the New Holland Cassowary are of a remarkable construction...It seems incapable of resisting water, or of holding air." The plate is inscribed: "Fish Hooks of New So. Wales. A Feather of the Cassowary. E. Kennion delin. London. Published as the Act directs Dec: 29, 1789, by J.Debrett."

Original: copperplate engraving. 1790
