2 stipple engraved portraits of Aborigines, printed in colour and heightened with watercolour, from the Atlas to the "Voyage de découvertes aux Terres Australes...", each 8½ x 5 ins. framed and glazed,
This voyage, one of the many sent out in response to the success of Cook's, had none of the caché of the earlier voyage. However the Atlas produced under the direction of Milbert, is staggering from the point of view of quality & style compared with Cook's. The attention to draftsmanship and the reproduction of colour is magnificent.
