This pocket square aims to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the Endeavour Voyage, first of Captain James Cook's three famous voyages to the Pacific in 1768. In the portrait, he holds his own chart of the Southern Ocean on the table and his right hand points to the east coast of Australia. His left thumb and finger lightly hold the other edge of the chart over his knee. His hat sits on the table behind him to the left on top of a substantial book, perhaps his journal, itself resting on the chart.

In 1772, Cook sailed for the second time to the fringes of the Antarctic and the Pacific, returning in 1775. He sat for this portrait, commissioned by Sir Joseph Banks, 'for a few hours before dinner' on 25 May 1776 but it is not known whether he did so again before he left London on 24 June for his third voyage, never to return.
