Small scratch on the glass, frame a little rubbed but easily near fine. Portrait of Park in a blue coat with gold buttons and a white stock. A nicely executed watercolor portrait on ivory after the portrait of Park by Henry Edridge. Park (1771-1806), an unemployed 22-year-old Scottish doctor became a famous explorer of Africa on behalf of the African Association. His second expedition claimed his life and that of all but three of his large contingent of soldiers and sailors but his legacy was that he effectively opened up the interior of Africa for further exploration.
