Plate no. 1. Freycinet, Louis de. 'Carte Generale de la Nouvelle Hollande' (1811).
This chart was published in 1811 as part of Francois Peron's publication on Baudin's voyage. The chart, drawn by Louis de Freycinet, commander of the Casuarina, depicts Baudin's discoveries in Australian waters. There is no acknowledgement on the chart of Flinders' prior discoveries, even though the Dutch discoveries of the west and southern coastline of Australia are acknowledged. Note the vignette, in the bottom left hand corner of the map, showing the three ships of the French expedition.
