Product Overview

Featuring previously unpublished translations, this insightful volume of journals and records from seven expeditions of French exploration between 1788 and 1831 documents the early years of Sydney. These revealing accounts present intimate details of the everyday lives at all levels of society, from governors' parties to convict labor. The cultural observations and outsider perspectives on the new British colony and its leading citizens is surprising and engaging, simultaneously painting a vivid picture of early Australia, British colonial history, and the interests of pivotal French explorers such as Freycinet, Laperouse, and Bouganville.
