Eight profiles showing Mt. la Touche, Baie de la Touche (present Englefield Bay), C. Hector (present Cape St. James ), I. Kerouard, Iles Sartine (Scott Islands) and Cap Blanc.

He was shipwrecked in 1788 but his narrative, maps, and views survived and were published in 1797. Thirty-eight years later the scattered remains of La Boussole and L’Astrolabe was discovered wrecked on a vicious reef on an atoll in the New Hebrides. Atlas Du Voyage De La Pérouse. Paris:
