An unusual outcome of the Duperrey expedition

First edition. Ernest de Blosseville's younger brother Jules sailed for the Pacific in 1822 under Duperrey who had been ordered to report on western New Holland as a possible site for French settlement. Duperrey ignored these orders but Jules de Blosseville made his own reports and spent nearly a month in New South Wales. His diaries, letters and theorising form the basis for this book.
