Louis Isidore Duperrey (1786 - 1865)

Louis Isidore Duperrey (1786 - 1865) Important French Pacific explorer and mapmaker who joined the navy in 1802, and served as marine hydrologist to Louis Claude de Saulces de Freycinet aboard the Uranie (1817–1820). He commanded La Coquille on its circumnavigation of the earth (1822–1825) with Jules Dumont d'Urville as second in command. On the return to France in March 1825, Lesson and Dumont brought back to France an imposing collection of animals and plants collected on the Falkland Islands, on the coasts of Chile and Peru, in the archipelagos of the Pacific and New Zealand, New Guinea and Australia. During the voyage the ship spent two weeks in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand in 1824. He was the first to chart all of the Gilbert Islands archipelago, (Kiribati). He was elected a Foreign Honorary Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1861.
