Map of the South-East Coast of Australia, 1808 by French Cartographer Louis de Freycinet in 1811-12 Giclee

"Carte Generale de la Terre Napoleon (a la Nouvelle Hollande)/redigee d'apres les travaux executes a bord de la  corvette le Geographe et de la Goellette le Casuarina par M.L. Freycinet an 1808" Original French title

From 1800-1804 the French Captain, Nicolas Baudin, undertook a voyage of scientific discovery in the Southern Oceans. 

On April 8th, 1802, Matthew Flinders, who was undertaking a similar task along with the challenge of being the first to circumnavigate "New Holland", met Baudin off the South Australian Coastline that he was later to call Encounter Bay. 

The Captains were both unfortunate on their respective European return as Baudin died at French Mauritius and Flinders was required to "give his parole" and remain on the island until 1810.

 In the meantime the French managed to publish an account and atlas of the French discoveries in Paris between 1811-12. The cartouche on this map features Napoleon himself in the upper right hand corner, and a natural history scene revealing the wonders of this previously unrecorded coastline. In the lower left hand corner the two French ships, La Geographe and La Naturalist, are featured.
