Significance

In 1841 the French naval officer François-Edmond Pâris (1806-1893) compiled his notes and drawings of indigenous watercraft, based on observations made during three circumnavigations of the globe on the ASTROLABE (1826-1829), LA FAVORITE (1829-1833) and ARTEMISE (1837-1841). Retiring from the French Navy in 1871 with the rank of Vice Admiral, Pâris became Curator of the Musée National de la Marine where he had several hundred models made from his drawings in the Essai. He combined a passion for maritime technology with the skill of a master draftsman to produce an unparalleled record of indigenous watercraft at a time when western influences were introducing fundamental changes to indigenous cultures.
