palla“Der Kapitän und der Künstler. Die Erforschung der Terra Australis” documents an extraordinary expedition. In 1801, a group of adventurers set out to explore the South Seas. The team fronted by navigator Matthew Flinders examined what is known today as Australia. The men – who named the continent – were accompanied by Ferdinand Bauer, an outstanding illustrator. The artist’s portrays of plants and animals – of which many are featured in the book – are remarkable. “Der Kapitän und der Künstler. Die Erforschung der Terra Australis” is a special publication about a special adventure.
