This is the original unique Gouache painting by Oliver Frey.

The Sea-Going Scientist. Captain Cook's voyage of exploration up Australia's east coast might well have had a tragic end. Only Cook's courage and cool leadership averted complete disaster. His ship The Endeavour almost ended up on the rocks.

Original artwork for the illustrations on pp 8-9 of L&L issue no. 861 (15 July 1978). The art was split in two pieces during production. The second image would have been the left half and overlaid with text in the magazine.
