Description

Lithograph by Maurin after de Sainson, showing Australian aboriginals, posibly from King George's Sound, in what is now Western Australia. The arrival of Europeans in Australia, as elsewhere, led to the murder of indigenous people and the degradation of aboriginal culture. Illustration from 'Voyage de decouvertes de "l'Astrolabe": execute par ordre du roi, pendant les annees 1826-1827-1828-1829' by French navigator Jules-Sebastien-Cesar Dumont d'Urville (1790-1842), published in Paris in 1833. The book, (in English, 'Voyage of discovery of the "Astrolabe": undertaken by order of the king, during the years 1826-1829'), is an account of a scientific expedition to the Pacific. Illustration from the atlas section of the book.
