Herman Lynge & Son-Rare books


Comment from Herman Lynge & Son-Rare books:

First edition of Duperrey's circumnavigation of the earth with La Coquille, 1822-25, on which Dumont d'Urville was a second. René-Primevère Lesson travelled on La Coquille as a naval doctor and naturalist, and the expedition is renowned for the amazing collection of animals and plants collected on the Falkland Islands, on the coasts of Chile and Peru, in the archipelagos of the Pacific and New Zealand, New Guinea and Australia, as well as the discovery of a number of undocumented islands and the preparation of charts of little-known areas of the South Pacific. #rarebooks #antiquarianbooks #finebooks #handcoloured bibliophile #duperrey #chile #peru #australia #maps #voyages #travel #circumnavigation #pacific
