Description:

Large scale chart of the south seas, showing Australia with the discoveries of Cook on the east coast but not including current knowledge of Bass Strait (Bass & Flinders 1798) and just prior to the charting of the southern coast by Baudin and Flinders (1802) The tracks of the ships l’Esperance and la Republic under the command of Bruni d’Entrecasteux are shown. D’Entrecasteaux was given the command of the expedition in search of Jean-Francois de La Perouse, who had last been seen by the First Fleet leaving Botany Bay in March 1788. The mystery of La Perouse’s disappearance was solved by Dumont D’Urville in 1826 when he found relics of La Perouse’s shipwreck in Vanikoro (Santa Cruz Islands- Solomon Islands).

He was appointed Geographer of the Department of External Relations (1803), member of the Institute (1806), and finally professor of geography at the Faculty of Arts of Paris (1809).
