Edmond Bigot de La Touanne, naval officer on the Thetis expedition to the South Seas in 1824-6 commanded by H. de Bouganville. They had been given secret orders to report on the defense capabilities of British settlement. Bougainville &amp his officers traveled as far afield as possible. The grandeur of the Blue Mountains was so much admired by the French artists, that they declaimed it exceeded everything they had seen during their whole of their expedition.

From the very rare, Journal de la navigation autour du globe de la fregate la Thetis et de la corvette l’Esperance, the account of the expedition under the command of Baron de Hyancinthe Yves Philippe Potentien Bougainville.
