Louis de Rienzi was a 19th-century French voyager who is remembered for his 1836 masterwork ‘Oceania, or Fifth Part of the World.’ This book is a summary compilation of James Cook, George Anson, and Bougainville voyages supplemented by Rienzi’s own travels. According to Nunc Broc this work is

“quite successful. The book makes more room for history than for geography. If the exotic flora and fauna are not neglected, the author is particularly interested in customs of the natives.”

 

This set features incredible folding maps of the South Pacific Islands including Australia, Malaysia, Borneo as well as illustrated views of native people and their customs. It also includes original musical scores with text.
