Miniature voyage collection, with a Freycinet section

A delightful French miniature collection of voyages. There are three volumes each to the sections on Africa, Asia, America, Europe and the South Seas. This last part has good Australian and South Pacific material from a variety of sources, including Oxley and Freycinet, both of whose narratives had only just been published. The collection is most interesting and is well illustrated with early engraved maps and plates.
