Books from a private collection. Part 4: French voyages before 1800.

This catalogue describes the fourth part of the collection of a long-term client and friend of Hordern House, with a few additions. The subject matter ranges from Bougainville and Crozet’s voyages to the La Pérouse expedition, covered in the collection in detail; its tragic fate would remain mysterious for forty years — the eighteenth century’s MH370.
