Three fascinating plates from the English text edition of Jean Baptiste Bory de Saint-Vincent's 'Voyage Dans Les Quartre Principales Iles Des Mers D'Afrique'. The plates comprise 'Map of the Island of Bourbon'", 'A Birds Eye View of a Volcano in the Island of Bourbon' and 'Inside the Crater of Dolomien in the Isle of Bourbon'. The birds-eye view is in fine original colour showing in graphic detail the lava flows, while the cross-section of the crater shows spirals of lava with smoking fumeroles - the latter using a delicate aquatint printing style. Bory de Saint-Vincent was the chief naturalist on Baudin's French expedition into the Indian Ocean and on to Australia. After disagreements with the leader, Saint-Vincent left the expedition and spent two years exploring and mapping the islands of, and around, Mauritius. Various plate sizes, map 195 x 235; birds-eye view 155 x 235; cross-section 110 x 335.
