The Australia of the French Explorers

Frederic Mouchet, Noelene Bloomfield

The Australia of the French Explorers
Six major French expeditions to the Australian coast took place over the course of the 18th and 19th centuries. Through contemporary photographs, expedition drawings and historical commentary, this book plunges us into the impressive and bewildering universe of an Australia still intact, loyal to the environment these seafaring explorers came upon over 200 years ago.

A dual French/English publication from France, distributed by Wakefield Press in time for the exhibition of Mouchet's photographs at the State Library of South Australia, 8 June to 14 August 2016.

Praise for The Australia of the French Explorers:
'A wonderful gift for anyone interested in Australian history or exploration. The concise yet informative text wonderfully complements the historical drawings and contemporary photographs which well deserve repeated viewings, each time finding something new to see and wonder at.' - Jan Kershaw, Glam Adelaide
