Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
Beschreibung"The world of Pacificc scholarship owes a considerable debt to John Dunmore, whose monographs, editions of journals, and articles . . . have documented the exploits of French navigators in the great ocean. . . . Dunmore is particularly effective in using the journals to convey the claustrophobic, often squalid conditions on ships crowded with men and animals. . . . [Dunmore''s two biographies] provide readbale and balanced accounts of the lives of two navigators who to many in the English-speaking world are little more than names." -- Glyndwr Williams "International History Review"
