The Life of Jean-François de la Pérouse
French explorer and naval officer Jean-François de la Pérouse (1741–88) was, after James Cook, the greatest explorer of the Pacific in the eighteenth century. In 1785, La Pérouse was commissioned by Louis XVI to head an expedition into the uncharted regions of the Pacific Ocean. Setting out from France, the expedition over the next three years was the first to map the coasts of California, Alaska, and Siberia. From there, La Pérouse continued to Easter Island and Hawaii, where La Pérouse Bay bears his name. After a stop in Botany Bay, Australia, La Pérouse’s two ships set out for the Solomon Islands. En route, they encountered a storm and were sunk; despite search efforts over the centuries, no trace of the wreckage of La Pérouse’s ships has been found.
Where Fate Beckons tells the story of La Pérouse’s life and adventures, along the way providing a lively introduction to the world of French colonialism, the end of the Age of Exploration, and French society in the years leading to the French Revolution.

An Artist’s Life
This high-quality, exquisitely produced book, is a celebration of the life and art of William Dobell, considered to be one of Australia’s greatest artists. Dobell was the first artist to win both the Wynne Prize for landscapes and the Archibald Prize for portraiture in the same year. But William Dobell was also a quintessential Aussie bloke — more at home in the local pub with his mates than on the international stage. He also seemed to find controversy wherever he went, famously being sued by fellow competitors after winning the Archibald Prize in 1943. Lavishly illustrated with artworks, personal photographs and newspaper clippings, William Dobell paints a compelling portrait of both the man and the artist.
