Description:

Scarce engraving showing the fight where Paul Antoine Fleuriot de Langle, second in command on the La Perouse expedition was killed on Tutuila Island in American Samoa.

Paul Antoine Fleuriot de Langle (1744-1787), was a French vicomte, académicien de marine, naval commander and explorer. He was second in command of the La Pérouse expedition, which departed France on 1 August 1785 and was eventually lost in the Pacific. Fleuriot de Langle died in an encounter with natives in what is now American Samoa before the expedition was lost; his remains were returned to France, and were buried in the choir of the church of Saint-Louis at Brest.
