[Paris: H.J.Jansen, 1800.]
Engraving, sheet 315 x 450 (12½ x 17¾"). Very slight crease. Small margins.
Plate from 'Relation du voyage à la recherche de La Pérouse', compiled by Jacques Julien Houtou de Labillardière. Labillardière was the botanist on board an expedition led by Chevalier Bruni d'Entrecasteaux which in 1791-3 attempted to find Jean-Francois de Galaup, comte de La Pérouse, who disappeared in 1788 after setting sail from Botany Bay (Australia). Despite finding no trace of La Pérouse, 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 (and sketches by the expedition's artist Jean Piron) which were published in this book.
