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).
