Poissons from Voyage de la Corvette Postcard
These grouper fish were illustrated after finds of the French exploration ship La Corvette d’Astrolabe. Ordered by King Louis-Philippe to reach the south magnetic pole, the ship’s voyage marks the race of France and England to document the globe.
This postcard features bookplate 3 from Voyage de la Corvette l'Astrolabe, Zoologie Atlas by J. Durmont d'Urville (1833.), sourced from Museums Victoria's own collection of rare books. A miniature version of our exclusive print, this postcard makes a great missive, decoration or memento.
