Product Description

Map Kangaroo Island South Australia Baudin Freycinet 1803

“Plan de L’Ile Decree A La Terre Napoleon: Nouvelle Hollande Par MML et H. Freycinet et Boullanger 1802 et 1803” original French name by Nicolas Baudin's cartographer Louis de Freycinet. After 1814 it was known officially as Kangaroo Island.

Archival quality Giclee Limited Edition to 350 of the map included in the atlas of the Account of Nicolas Baudin's Voyage of 1800-1804, Voyage de découvertes aux terres australes (‘Voyage of Discovery to the Southern Lands’, three volumes, Paris, 1807–1816) : Atlas Part I by Francois Peron, and Atlas Part 2 by Louis de Freycinet, in 1811.

The French captain, Nicolas Baudin, unlike the English captain, Matthew Flinders, circumnavigated Kangaroo Island. While Baudin’s voyage returned with cartography and natural history in 1804, it was without Baudin. He died on Isle de France in 1803.

However, Matthew Flinders was delayed in his return to Britain by 6 years by French Governor-General of Isle de France (Mauritius), Charles Mathieu Isidore Decaen. Flinders returned with his cartography in 1810, publishing “Terre Australis” in 1814.

Along the South Australia coastline he included 49 French names, recognition of the Baudin Voyage’s prior discovery, many being on Kangaroo Island.

 Conservation Archival Limited Edition Giclee to 350. Issued with numbered certificate.

    Wonderful! This answers my query of how many French names from Nicolas Baudin's voyage in 1800-1804 remain on the SA Coastline!
