Lesson served as a naturalist on board La Coquille during Duperrey's major French voyage of discovery of 1822-1825, and he was the first to describe a Bird of Paradise in flight when the voyage visited New Guinea in 1824. The voyage concentrated on the exploration of the Pacific and "called at Brazil, the Falkland islands, Concepcion, Callao, and Payta. The Pacific islands visited were the Tuamotu Archipelago, Tahiti and the Society Islands, Tonga , Rotuma, the Gilbert and Caroline Islands, and the Bismarck Archipelago. Australia was visited twice, and explorations made of New Zealand and of the Maoris were of particular significance. Vast quantities of ethnographic and scientific data were collected. Before returning to Marseilles , Java, Mauritius, and Ascension were visited" (Hill 517). From the distinguished library at Audley End of Richard Griffin, 3rd Baron Braybrooke, a career politician, and bowdlerizing editor of the "Memoirs of Samuel Pepys" in 1825, and subsequent successful editions.
