Jules Sébastien César Dumont d'Urville (1790-1842), was a French naval officer who combined engravings from the drawings of 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, as with this one. This the upper half of a page. The page measures 265 x 175mm (approximately 10.5 x 7 inches). This half page measures 120 x 175mm (4 3/4 x 6 7/8 inches).
