Description

Engraved plate from 'Voyage autour du monde' ('Voyage round the world') by Louis Isidore Duperrey (1826). The engraving shows a scene on the island of Buru which is now part of Indonesia; the flag flying is probably meant to be the Dutch flag which has the red stripe at the top and the blue stripe at the bottom. Indonesia was formerly a Dutch colony known as the Netherlands East Indies. 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.
