Excellent folio lithograph is from August Nicolas Vaillant's Voyage Autour du Monde Execute Pendant les Annes 1836 et 1837 sur la Corvette la Bonite Commandee par M. Vaillant - Album Historique. The work was published in Paris by Arthus Bertrand between 1840 and 1866.

Vaillant was a French naval officer who was assigned this voyage in 1836. It was mainly a political expedition to build trade relations through the Pacific to South America, Hawaii, China, the Philippines, and Calcutta. He was also tasked with making hydrographic and geographic observations when possible, as well as gathering natural history specimens. On this expedition Vaillant employed naturalists Joseph Eydoux and François Souleyet, and watercolour artists Barthélémy Lauvergne and Théodore-Auguste Fisquet. "The principal aims of the voyage were political; to show the French flag in various areas in the Pacific, including the Hawaiian Islands, China, and Cochin China; to extend protection to a number of French subjects; and to draw up comprehensive reports on the countries visited, including Brazil, Chile, the Marianas, and the Philippines" (Hill)
