Bay of Ware on Wahine Island. Raiatea Islander. Antique Print.

Original engravings by Bouilly after drawings by Dumont D'Urville's official expedition artist, Louis Auguste de Sainson (1801-1887), for Voyages Pittoresque Autour de Monde  (Picturesque Voyages around the World), which was a collective account of the voyages of previous explorers' discoveries and records, as well as his own, published in Paris c.1834-1835, under the direction of d'Urville.
Jules Sébastien César Dumont d'Urville (1790-1842), was a French naval officer who was commissioned to explore the region around Australia at the beginning of the nineteenth century. D'Urville combined engravings from the drawings by his on board artist, with sketches and engravings from previous voyages (notably those from Captain Cook's third voyage between 1776 and 1780).

This page with two engravings measures 265 x 175mm (approximately 10.5 x 7 inches).
