Voyage Round the World is one of the volumes in our picture book series. Written by Adam Johann von Krusenstern, also known as Ivan Fëdorovič Kruzenštern, and translated by Richard Belgrave Hoppner in 1813, this two-volume work offers a meticulous and insightful account of the first Russian expedition to circumnavigate the world.
The expedition, which set out in 1803 under His Majesty Alexander I on the ships Nadezhda and Neva, had a primary objective of opening maritime trade with Japan and China, facilitating trade in South America, and exploring the possibilities of colonization in California. He also conducted in-depth research of the Pacific coast of North America, detailing the geographical explorations, encounters with diverse cultures, and naval challenges they faced.
We have chosen this title for our collection of picture books because the visual representations of this work are emblematic in the telling of the history and exploration of America, and offer a unique and fascinating perspective on the era of naval exploration. The connection between the written work and the selected images reflects our commitment to the visual representation of the crucial historical moments in the evolution of America.
In addition to the details of the exploration, the book offers valuable information on the scientific aspects, including meteorology, botany and ethnography. The incorporation of two hand-colored aquatints and a double engraved map provides a visual perspective that enriches the reader’s experience.
Voyage Round the World is more than a travel story; It chronicles science, commerce and diplomacy in an age of global expansion. Krusenstern offers an intimate insight into his leadership and life on board, as well as reflections on international relations and the expedition’s political goals.
The historical importance of this work is reflected in specialized bibliographies and is considered one of the essential works in travel literature. Its aesthetic appeal and rich information contained make it a valuable piece for collectors, historians and marine exploration enthusiasts.
