'Barrow Island' one of the plates from 'Watercolours of fish from Australian waters' by James Barker Emery. Emery entered the Royal Navy in 1808 and had a colourful career that included two circumnavigations of the world surveying on the coast of east Africa - including work on the suppression of slavery - and some months as an unsanctioned 'governor' in Mombasa. He joined HMS Beagle in 1837, under Captain Wickham for the survey of the Australian coast.
