Bound for Glory: Exquisite books of French Pacific Voyages

The French made a number of significant scientific voyages into the Pacific in the early 19th century. Almost alone among nations, they published lavishly illustrated, multi-volumed accounts of these voyages which brought this new, exotic world to Europe. The State Library exhibition (2006) focusses on four voyages: Nicolas Baudin (1800–1804); Louis de Freycinet (1817–1820); Louis Duperrey (1822–1825) and Jules Dumont D’Urville (1826–1829).
