Title: Beautes de L Histoire Des Voyages Les Plus Fameux Autour Du Monde Et Dans Les Deux Hemispheres, 1830. Tome I
Author: H. Lemaire
Publisher: Eymery, Fruger et Comp
An early edition of Lemaire's History of some of the most famous voyages around the world, highlighting its beauty and the harrowing experiences of several explorers. From the voyages and brief captivity of Jules Dumont d'Urville, to the death of Mungo Park during his second expedition, and the destruction of 40-gun frigate Méduse (largely due to severe ineptitude), this volume is full of adventure, discovery, and occasionally despair.
This volume has one front piece and several illustrations present.
One volume in small 8vo, 370 pages
On note of condition, this volume is in good shape, with some wear noted at the corners and joints, and minor peeling on the spine which is otherwise shining brightly. There is little to no foxing or staining noted.
