Notes: On India paper, A lithographic view of the island of Goree off the west coast of Africa which now forms part of the city of Dakar in Senegal. It was published in Dumont D'Urville's 'Voyage de la Corvette L'Astrolabe' issued in several parts in 1830. The voyage was searching for the French Admiral and explorer, le Comte de La P?ouse. His voyage ended in tragedy when they were lost after leaving Botany Bay in March 1788. It was not until 1827 that their fate was known, this book marks that finding.
