Abstract:

The voyage, led by Duperrey, concentrated on the exploration of the Pacific. He had "already circumnavigated the globe under Freycinet. Dumont d'Urville, who would later lead his own expeditions in the Pacific, was Duperrey's second-in-command, Réné Lesson was the naturalist on the voyage. The Coquille called at Brazil, the Falkland Islands, Concepciõn, Callao, and Payta. The Pacific islands visited were the Tuamotu Archipelago, Tahiti and the Society Islands, Tonga, Rotuma, the Gilbert and Caroline Islands, and the Bismarck Archipelago. Australia was visited twice, and explorations made of New Zealand and the Maoris were of particular significance. Vast quantities of ethnographic and scientific data were collected. Before returning to Marseilles, Java, Mauritius, and Ascension were visited"--Hill collection of Pacific voyages (San Diego, Calif.: Univ. of California San Diego, 1974-1983), pages180-181.
