Uncolored detailed side view of the exploration vessel, with 2 insets. On upper margin: Voyages de Mr. Pages, Pl. 9.
9 uncolored maps, folded and bound in hard cover with manuscript title to accompany Pages's extensive narrative of travel and exploration. Library does not have the book (but see links to scanned book in Reference field below). Pages (1748-1793) was born in Toulouse and had an noteworthy career in the French navy, including several years spent traveling in Texas and Mexico (his account is considered one of the more important early works on Texas particularly, and indeed the English translation of 1791 is thought to be the oldest description of the Lone Star State in an English-language book).
