Description:

La Perouse’s large c.18th map of Easter Island divided into three sections. The French expedition visited Easter Island on 8 April 1786 in the ships the Boussole and Astrolabe.

In 1785, Jean-Francois de Galaup, Comte de la Perouse, began preparations for an extensive sea voyage. His aim was to explore the Pacific regions of North and South America, Asia and Australasia. The sponsor of the expedition was the French king, Louis XVI, who was inspired by Captain James Cook’s Pacific voyages. Louis ordered the French expedition to show the world that France could also dominate in ocean exploration.

From, La Perouse, Voyage de La Pérouse autour du monde, publicé conformément au décret du 22 Avril 1791.
