Narrative of a voyage around the world by Jacques Arago( Book )

53 editions published between 1821 and 1971 in 5 languages and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Founded in 1666, the French Académie des Sciences was a prominent and prestigious organisation behind numerous scientific advances in Europe in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. In 1817, commissioned by the Académie, Louis de Freycinet (1779–1841) embarked on a three-year expedition with the main purpose of investigating terrestrial magnetism and taking a series of pendulum measurements. In the course of this voyage around the world, the scientists aboard the Uranie also collected an abundance of samples and made significant observations in the fields of geography, ethnology, astronomy, hydrography and meteorology. The progress of this journey was detailed by Jacques Arago (1790–1855), draughtsman on the expedition, in the form of letters to a friend. This illustrated narrative is prefaced by a report to the Académie which summarises the mission's findings. Translated into English and published in 1823, this work is an informative and often witty account, reflecting contemporary ambitions in science and exploration

La plupart des ill. (lithogr. en noir et blanc par Langlumé d'après des dessins de l'auteur) ne figurent pas dans l'atlas historique de l'éd. "officielle" (Paris : Pillet Aîné, 1826); par exemple, la vue des "Montagnes volcaniques ..." sur l'île de Timor, les deux pl. représentant l'exécution de peines capitales par les indigènes des îles Sandwich, la "Chasse au tigre ..." au Paraguay, etc. D'autres pl. ont été reprises dans la "grande" éd., soit directement (par ex. la "Jeune fille de Guham allant à la messe" (gde éd. no 65) ou la "Jeune femme des îles Sandwich dansant" (gde éd. no 88), soit sous forme d'un sujet plus ou moins retravaillé (rencontre avec des indigènes qui tirent à l'arc, gde éd. no 32) ou intégré comme détail dans un ensemble plus important ("Manière de faire du feu ... ", gde éd. no 46)
