The first engraving, "Vue du coste du Sud oust de L’Isle de Tinium," shows the southern coast of Tinian Island, which was one of the islands visited by Anson during his voyage.
The engraving includes details such as the island's rugged coastline and the mountains in the distance, and it provides a vivid glimpse into what the island looked like in the mid-18th century.

The second engraving, "Vue de la rade de Tinian," shows the Tinian Island. The engraving depicts a ship at anchor along with the coastline and the mountains in the background. This engraving is notable for its accuracy and attention to detail, as it provides a realistic depiction of the surrounding terrain.
Overall, these engravings offer valuable insights into the early exploration of the Mariana Islands and the Pacific region more broadly, and they remain important historical documents to this day.
