Baudin in Australian Waters: The Artwork of the French Voyage of Discovery to the Southern Lands, 1800-1804 Hardcover - 1988

by Jacqueline Bonnemains (Editor); Elliott Forsyth (Editor); Bernard Smith (Editor)


From the publisher

Captain Nicolas Baudin's early 19th-century voyage of scientific discovery to Australia is a little-known event in French and Australian history. Yet that voyage played an important part in the history of Australian and Pacific colonization, and in the long story of worldwide scientific
exploration. Departing Le Havre in 1800, Baudin's expedition comprised two ships--the Naturaliste and the Gographe--and 238 men, including 22 scientists. For most of the next three-and-a half years they travelled along the western and southern coasts of Australia, charting the coastline and
landscape, studying the habits of Aborigines, and collecting specimens of the region's indigenous animal life. This book is a collection of the ethnographical and zoological drawings and paintings resulting from Baudin's voyage. Now housed at the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle in Le Havre, these rare
and beautiful illustrations--over 300 in all--depict a wide range of human and animal life, from Aboriginal rites, habits, and homes, to sponges, fish, birds, and mammals, including a number of now-extinct species. With a number of introductory essays providing essential historical and scientific
background, Baudin in Australian Waters will prove invaluable for anyone with an interest in French and Australian history, anthropology, natural history, exploration, and art.

Petit from the Lesueur Collection at the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle, Le Havre, France. "Until recently, the important geographical and scientific investigations carried out by the French voyage of discovery to the southern lands led by Captain Nicolas Baudin [1754-1803] between 1800 and 1804 has received little attention in either France or Australia. In particular, the significance of the drawings and the gouache and watercolour paintings executed by two young artists of the expedition, Charles-Alexandre Lesueur and Nicolas-Martin Petit, has hitherto been known only to a small number of specialists.… Read More
