Vue de la Baye de la Resolution dans l'Isle des Marquises. Description: Striking andhighly detailed copper engraved view of Resolution Bay (Vaitahu), Marquesas Islands, with natives on canoes in the foreground. Vaitahu is the name of a bay and valley in western Tahuata.Álvaro de Mendaña de Neira landed here in 1595 and in 1774, Captain James Cook visited the island and named it "Resolution" after his ship, "HMS Resolution".
Cook's Second Voyage (1772-1775):
Based on the success of his first voyage, Cook was appointed by the Admiralty to lead a second expedition. Two ships were employed with Cook commanding the Resolution and Captain Tobias Furneaux in charge of the Adventure. The purpose was to circumnavigate the globe as far south as possible to confirm the location of a southern continent. Cook proved that there was no "Terra Australis," which supposedly was located between New Zealand and South America. Cook was convinced, however, that there was land beyond the southern ice fields. In his pursuit of this idea, this expedition was the first European voyage to cross the Antarctic Circle. In addition, in two great sweeps through the Southern latitudes, Cook made an incredible number of landfalls including New Zealand, Easter Island, the Marquesas, Tahiti and the Society Islands, the Tonga Islands, the New Hebrides, New Caledonia, and a number of smaller islands. In addition to these navigational accomplishments and the accompanying expansion of geographical knowledge, the expedition also recorded a vast amount of information regarding the Pacific islands and peoples, proved the value of the chronometer as an instrument for calculating longitude, and improved techniques for preventing scurvy.
