The Pacific Journal of Louis-Antoine de Bougainville 1767-1768 - Hakluyt Society

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The French entered the Pacific in the late 17th century, but the ocean remained largely a Spanish preserve until British navigators began to cross its vast expanse in the mid 1760s. France's concerns that Britain might establish its superiority in the area, meant they welcomed Louis de Bougainville's voyage of exploration undertaken in 1766-9. Although Bougainville published an account of his voyage in 1771, his original journal was published only in 1977; the present volume makes the latter text available for the first time in English translation.

Hardback book in very good condition. Bottom end of spine bumped. Dust jacket in very good condition. Ends of spine and top corners bumped. Top edges shelfworn.
