    Engraved British chart of Vanikoro, sheet size 69 x 103 cm, black and white, engraved by Edward Weller, centrefold, a little dusty; shows soundings etc, with interior detail of relief. First published in 1873, with corrections to March 1901. The French explorer Jean-François de La Pérouse and the crews of his two vessels were stranded on Vanikoro in 1788, and all ultimately perished. The fate of the expedition remained a mystery until 1826.
