Rare first and only edition in French of an account of a journey to Madeira and Porto Santo, by the British traveller and naturalist Thomas Edward Bowdich , edited and with appendices by his wife Sarah , an outstanding naturalist and traveller in her own right. The resulting publication met with little success in the United Kingdom but more so in France, where Bowdich and his wife befriended Georges Cuvier and worked on several publications about West Africa and natural history, illustrated by Sarah.
The success of these publications enabled the couple to embark upon a second African expedition in After a stay of several months in Madeira, where they gathered all sorts of botanical, geographical and geological material, they travelled to Gambia. After taking astronomical observations at night, Bowdich caught a cold, developed a fever and died. Penniless and with the botanical specimens collected during the voyage lost in a storm, Sarah Bowdich took it upon herself to edit and publish the gathered material.
With the help of several friends, including Cuvier and Alexander von Humboldt , she prepared Bowdich's notes on Madeira, added illustrations drawn by herself the 7 plates of fishes foreshadowing her famous book Fresh-water fishes of Great Britain and prepared additional sections describing the African part of the journey and presenting translations of Arabic writing. The French translation also contained additional notes by her friends Cuvier and Von Humboldt.
