Antique Print of Waipio Valley and Rainbow Falls outside Hilo.

Original engraving circa 1835 for Voyages Pittoresque Autour de Monde  (Picturesque Voyages around the World), which comprised a general resume of the voyages of the discoveries of Magellan, Tasman, Dampier, Anson, Byron, Wallis, Carteret, Bougainville, Cook, Laperouse, G. Bligh, Vancouver, D'Entrecasteaux, Wilson, Baudin, Flinders, Krunsenstern, Porter, Kotzebue, Freycinet, Bellinghausen, Basil Hall, Duperrey, Paulding, Beechey, Dumont d'Urville, Lutke, Dillon, Laplace, B.Morrel, etc., published in Paris circa 1834-1835, under the direction of d'Urville.

Jules Sébastien César Dumont d'Urville (1790-1842), was a French naval officer who captained a vessel inexplored regions around Australia at the beginning of the nineteenth century. D'Urville combined engravings from the drawings by his official expedition artist Louis Auguste de Sainson (1801-1887), with sketches and engravings from previous voyages (notably those from Captain Cook's third voyage between 1776 and 1780).

Most of the engravings were printed two on a page, one above the other, but a few, on their sides, occupied the whole page. The page measures 265 x 175 mm (approximately 10.5 x 7 inches). This page is black and white as published. This is a lovely pair of views, but unfortunately there is a tear (archivally repaired) top right, outside the top of the image.
