Thanks for your comments Brendon. This page is certainly atmospheric, perhaps a reminder of the conditions they would face on their voyage south?

We will soon have translations of the Japanese text from the Shirase Museum in Japan -- which might help with our interpretations!

This is my favourite page. On the left is a message in Japanese and signature from the expeditions doctor. On the right is a beautiful seascape watercolour. It looks better in the flesh so go and have a look at the museum.
