Don José Mariano Moziño Suárez de Figueroa, botanist appointed as naturalist to the 1792 Expedición de Limites al Norte de California by Viceroy Revilla-Gigedo. He later collaborated with Martin de Sessé on his Plantae Novae Hispaniae and Flora Mexicana.
Abstract:
Manuscript, possibly autograph, of Moziño's account of the Nootka expedition, later published as Noticias de Nutka. In twelve chapters, the work describes the discovery and locations of the Nootka and details their social life and customs, government, religious beliefs, natural resources, and trade. Moziño also discusses the relations between the English and Spanish on the Northwest coast, including their conflict over the Spanish seizure of the Argonaut, the Princess Royal, and the Portuguese ship Iphegenia. There are also references to the explorations of the Americans John Kendrick and the trader Robert Gray.
