Description - Original engraving with later hand colouring from the work: Bougainville's Journal de la Navigation Autour du Globe.
c1824-26: This fine engraving is one of the few included in the work which was not of the French discoveries. As Cook was the first to sight many of the places Bougainville visited they were included.
The full page is 7 x 10.1/2 inches. Because antique maps and prints on paper are vulnerable to deterioration with the passage of time, they are individually relatively rare, so Art Emporium usually has only one of each image.
