Narrative of a voyage around the world (Bibliotheca Australiana)

 
9789060720363: Narrative of a voyage around the world (Bibliotheca Australiana)

Prefaced by his short 'Report' to the Academy of Sciences, this is Arago's account of the French ship Uranie's voyage of scientific exploration, 1817-1820. Arago was draughtsman to the expedition and his narrative takes the form of letters to a friend describing the places and peoples encountered during the circumnavigation, including the Cape of Good Hope, the Moluccas, the Marianne Islands, New South Wales and the Falklands - without the 'barbarous and tiresome nautical details'. Facsimile reprint.
