A study of French explorations and attempts to found a penal colony and strategic base in south western Australia, 1503-1826.
Based on previously unused records of explorers and information gleaned by the author on his own expeditions, this book provides a definitive account of the French contribution to Australian discovery from the time of Vasco da Gama to the joint effort made by British and French explorers in the age of Enlightenment.
Released in hardback edition only, the quality of this book is remarkable. With full colour illustrations throughout and interspersed within the text, it is published to the highest degree with a quality finish. Truly a book to treasure.
