Authors La Perouse, Jean-Francois de Galaup, comte de, 1741-1788
Full Title (Covers to) Atlas du voyage de La Perouse. (title page only) Dessine par J. M. Moreau le Jeune. Grave par Ph. Triere. L. Aubert scripsit.
Note La Perouse set sail from France in 1785 to continue the discoveries of Captain Cook. He was shipwrecked in 1788 but his narrative, maps, and views survived and were published in 1797. This copy consists of the Atlas only to the First French edition. It is an exceptional copy, with very strong impressions. It should be compared to the smaller English Atlas of 1799. Maps are without color and bound in half leather brown marbled paper covered boards with "La Perouse's Voyages. Atlas" stamped in gilt on the spine. Issued to accompany: Voyage de la Perouse autour du monde ... an V (1797)

Chart Atlas
Authors France. Depot-general de la Marine
Full Title (Covers to) Neptune des cotes occidentales d'Amerique sur le Grand Ocean.
Note This volume 7 of Neptune Francois forms an extensive atlas of charts of the western coasts of North and South America, with most charts dated or updated to the 1820's. 25 charts are listed in the index, yet 36 charts are present here. This copy is from the library of the Duc d'Orleans. This issue must be later than the NMM 256, since it has 10 extra charts dated from 1823 to 1828, the latest date in NMM256 is 1822. The eight Vancouver charts appear to be original issues or restrikes from the original plates, the La Perouse charts are absolutely restrikes on newer paper, with the Mappe Monde updated in Australia to show the coastal discoveries in the south. The progression of engraving style from the La Perouse to the 1828 charts is most interesting. The charts of Mexico and South America are largely copies of the Spanish Marine charts issued in the early 1800s showing the Malaspina Expedition tracks (see W. Heckrotte's copy of the Spanish charts). Bound in full red leather covers with decorative gold border and the same titles as above stamped on the spine.
