Jules Sébastien César Dumont d'Urville (1790-1842), was a French naval officer who captained Astrolabe when exploring the south and west Pacific, Australia, New Zealand and Antarctica. 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 approximately 265 x 175mm (10.3/8 x 7 inches). The individual engravings measure approximately 90 x 120mm ( 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches). This page has fine later hand-colour.
