They fold part of their habit, which is usually made of striped stuff, round their waist to which they fasten it by one end, and suffer the rest to flow down to their feet. The upper part of their attire, which is of a different colour, covers their breast, and then descends to their knees. They generally have a handkerchief in their hand, and their hair is plaited into a point on the upper part of their head. Their arms and feet are naked'.

Engraving. 310 x 450mm, 12¼ x 17¾".
A Dutch trading post near Java. In 1788 Jean-Francois de Galaup, comte de La Pérouse set sail from Botany Bay and was never seen again. Despite the upheaval of the French Revolution the National Assembly was moved to send an expedition in search of their lost hero, 1791-3, under Chevalier Bruni d'Entrecasteaux. Despite finding no trace of La Perouse, losing its commander and many crew to scurvy, and finally splitting between royalist and republican factions, the expedition was judged a success because of the important observations made by the expedition's scientists, especially in Australia. This account, compiled by the expedition's botanist, Jacques Julien Houtou de Labillardière, was published as 'Relation du voyage à la recherche de La Pérouse', with natural history plates by Redouté and Audebert. The work even has its own abbreviation in botantical literature, 'Voy.Rech.Perouse'.

Plate from the Dutch artist and writer Cornelis de Bruyn's (1652-1727) 'Travels into Muscovy, Persia, and part of the East-Indies', as the 1737 English translation was titled.

He explains that the men had been brought to Batavia with the intention of teaching them the local language, and then to obtain from them an account of their native land, before sending them back and hoping that 'they might have an opportunity of representing the humanity of the company to their fellow natives, and to induce them to engage in a commerce with our nation'.
