Description

Engraved plate from 'Voyage autour du monde' ('Voyage round the world') by Louis Isidore Duperrey (1826). The engraving shows chiefs of the island of 'Waigiou', now known as Pulau Waigeo, in Irian Jaya, Indonesia, and from the haven of Doreri in the Doberai Peninsula, Irian Jaya, on what is now the Indonesian part of the island of New Guinea. Duperrey (1786-1865), a French marine hydrographer, was the commander of the 'Coquille' during its voyage (1822-1825) to Chile, Peru, Polynesia, the Molucca Islands (Indonesia), New Ireland (Papua New Guinea) and Australia.
