Flotte de Guerre a la Nouvelle-Zelande. Vue de la Baie-des-Iles. Antique print of New Zealand Maori War Canoes & View of the Bay of Islands.

Original engraving circa 1835 after a drawing 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 acount 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).
