Six major French expeditions to the Australian coast took place over the course of the 18th and 19th centuries. Through contemporary photographs, expedition drawings and historical commentary, this book plunges us into the impressive and bewildering universe of an Australia still intact, loyal to the environment these seafaring explorers came upon over 200 years ago.
