"Volume I [books IpIII] covers the voyage out (1800-1802), and vividly describes the expedition's discoveries in Western Australia and Tasmania, as well as its visits to Timor and Sydney. Book IV details the period when Péron was zoologist on Baudin's voyage and when he met Matthew Flinders at Encounter Bay in 1802. It describes in detail the expedition's discoveries on Kangaroo Island, King Island, the coast of Western Australia and visits to Timor and South Africa. Book V, Dissertations [by François Péron and continued by Louis de Freycinet], offers a translation of scientific papers. Among these, of particular interest, is Leschenault's paper on the botany of Tasmania and the parts of the mainland which he visited. Others papers, written by François Péron, deal with ways to determine the temperature of the sea at different depths, various aspects of Australian wild life and the treatment of dysentery. The Atlas completes the official account of the French expedition of 1800-04 led by Post Captain Nicolas Baudin. The voyagers stopped for varying periods at Mauritius, Cape Town, New Holland, Van Diemen's Land, New South Wales and Timor. The flora, fauna, local inhabitants and settlements in each of these locations were meticulously recorded by the expedition's artists, perfectly supplementing the detailed accounts written by zoologist François Péron."--Publisher's website
