"Narrative of the Voyage of H.M.S. Rattlesnake, 1846-50, Volume 2" is the second volume of Captain Owen Stanley's account of the expedition around the Australian coast. In December 1846, Stanley sailed from Portsmouth with the naturalists Thomas Huxley, John MacGillivray, and artist Oswald Walters Brierly on board. In November 1847, the expedition arrived at Port Curtis on the Australian coast and, after surveying the harbor, prepared a detailed description of the nature and coastline. In 1848 he continued north to explore New Guinea, and in June of that year, he joined Edmund Kennedy's expedition to the Cape York Peninsula.
