Description

Tall ships La Recherche and l'Espérance, under the command of Antoine Bruny d'Entrecasteaux (1737-1793). Between 1791 and 1793, they sailed from Brest (France) to the islands northwest of Australia. The intention of the voyage was to make scientific and geographic discoveries and also to look for the expedition led by Jean-François de Galaup de La Perouse (1741-1788) which had gone missing in 1788.
