- Samuel Pepys Cockerell (ed.), 'Travels in Southern Europe and the Levant, 1810-1817. The Journal of C. R. Cockerell, R.A.' (1903, Reprinted 1999), p. 169:
'...we caught the breeze nicely, which carried us straight north to Porto Genovese by night.
This is a fine port, and the rocks above it are very grand. We caught and ate a fine supper of fish, and sat cross-legged on our little deck drinking wine with an enjoyment of this adventurous, unconventional life I can never forget. The night was cool, the moon shone bright upon us, and we crowned the evening with Moriote songs. It was past midnight before we got to bed...'

F. Beaufort, 'Karamania, or a Brief Description of the South Coast of Asia Minor and the remains of Antiquity', (London 1817) has many engravings that appear to be based on Cockerell's drawings, even if Beaufort's name is given as draughtsman.
