“These fantastic color plates of marine mollusks are from the 1833 scientific atlas, “Voyage De La Corvettte L’Astrolabe.” The five volume atlas documents the scientific expedition of French naval officer and naturalist Jules Dumont d’Urville, who circumnavigated the globe aboard the French exploration ship Astrolabe between 1826 and 1829.”
