  • La Favorite – Au Mouillage Durant la Colla de Manille – Lauvergne – 1835

    La Favorite – Au Mouillage Durant la Colla de Manille – Lauvergne – 1835

    An original engraving by Barthelemy Lauvergne (1805-1875) of the French Vessel La Favorite using a shackle anchor in high seas. Executed on India-laid paper being plate number 32 from “Voyage Autour du Monde par les Mers de l’Inde et de la Chine de la corvette de sa Majeste La Favorite execute pendant les annees 1830,1831,1832 sous le commandement de M. Laplace” published in Paris in 1835 under the direction of Louise Auguste de Sainson.

    Le Favorite arrived in Hobart on the 11th July 1830 and stayed until the 7th August before sailing for Sydney.

    Some foxing away from the plate image and minor marks still a very good example and we believe well priced.

    Plate size 28.8 x 38.2 cm. Included in the National Collection as part of the Rex Nan Kivell bequest NK685
