Kangaroo Island, South Australia, Nicolas Baudin

Gulf of St. Vincent and Spencer Gulf, 1803

"Carte generale des Golfes Bonaparte et Josephine (a la Terre Napoleon, Nouvelle Hollande)/ par M.M.L. Freycinet et Boullanger 1803"

A detail of the gulfs, also published in 1811-12, that appears on the larger map of the South Coast of Australia. This map's importance in highlighting the names of prominent features (after important people!) was not reprinted when the French were olbliged to replace many French names with the English names Matthew Flinders had chosen (if the particular discovery had predated Baudin's Voyage). Pointedly, many of those people of importance were no longer in postions of power due to the political instability of the era.
