Présentation de l'éditeur :

As the 19th century dawned, Europe remained in the grips of the previous centurys devastating legacy of war. Napoleon, soon to crown himself Emperor of France, held the continent in thrall. Britain, however, stood defiant. Amidst the political tensions of the day, two remarkable voyages of discovery set out from rival ports, but with a common destination Terra Australis. Alienated from one another by international relations, the expeditions and their captains, Matthew Flinders and Nicolas Baudin, were nonetheless united in their cause of carrying to the Antipodes the European Enlightenments defining quest for knowledge and discovery. However, history has not been as even-handed as Baudin and Flinders were in recognizing each others accomplishments. While the name of Matthew Flinders has found its rightful place in the pantheon of Australian explorers, that of Nicolas Baudin remains tarnished by the false accusations levelled by his detractors. This book redresses that balance. Next to Flinders voice is that of Baudin presented through fresh translations of his journals. And alongside charts and artwork of the English expedition is placed the visually striking encounters of the French. The result is a stunning record of the triumph of common human endeavour over the vagaries of politics, and, above all, the elevation of the cruelly maligned Nicolas Baudin to his rightful place in history alongside Matthew Flinders.
