Description
Lithograph by Hostein after de Sainson. Napoleon I (1769-1821) was exiled on Saint Helena between 1815 and his death. At the time of depiction, Saint Helena was administered by the East India Company, and became a British crown colony in 1834. It later became the British dependent state of Saint Helena. 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.
