In 1785, King Louis XVI appointed Jean Francois la Perouse to lead a world expedition that, hopefully, would supplement, and ultimately complete, the voyages begun by James Cook years earlier. Perouse greatly admired Cook though thought his maps and discoveries were incomplete. The voyage took him and his crew to South America, California, Alaska, Eastern Asia, and south Pacific Islands, where the voyage ultimately ended in shipwreck.

 

This 1798 first English translation of Perouse’s work is illustrated with 25 incredible engravings, nautical tables, and descriptions of encounters on Easter Island, Siberian dog sleds, Japan, and New Zealand.
