Reise um die Welt by Louis-Antoine de Bougainville( Book )

Bougainville begibt sich mit zwei Schiffen auf die lange Reise um die Welt! Zuerst führt die Reise Richtung Südamerika, wo er noch mit der Besiedelung, resp. der Rückgabe der Falkland-Inseln beschäftigt ist und auch anderes Ungemach erdulden muss, bis die Fahrt endlich in den Pazifik fortgesetzt werden kann. Nach den erlebten Umständen mit den Indianern an der äussersten Spitze Südamerikas muss ihm die Ankunft auf Tahiti wirklich wie die Entdeckung des Paradieses vorgekommen sein. Die Leute sind durchwegs freundlich und friedlich eingestellt und äusserst freizügig im Umgang mit dem weiblichen Geschlecht! Welch eine Freude für die vierhundert Seeleute ... Doch schon nach neun Tagen verlassen sie die Paradies-Insel wieder und setzen ihre Reise durch die Inselwelt des Pazifiks zurück nach Frankreich fort. Der Teil über Tahiti ist also gar nicht so sehr zentral, wie man von der Aufmachung her annehmen könnte (was auch gut so ist)! Für einmal ist das in dieser Reihe sonst herausragende Vorwort etwas missglückt - allzu ausführlich geht der Herausgeber auf die Interpretation des von Bougainville gedachten Namens für besagte Inseln eine: Neu-Kythera! Schon interessant aber zu viel des Guten - v.a. für ein jugendliches Publikum viel zu "wissenschaftlich". Aber dafür ist der Reisebericht als solches sehr lesenswert und bringt viele Hintergründe über die Verhältnisse in den zahlreichen angesegelten Kolonien und neuentdeckten Inseln! Ein toller Bericht!

"The French had sailed into the Pacific since the later seventeenth century and indeed completed several circumnavigations early in the following century, but the ocean remained largely a Spanish preserve until British navigators began to cross its vast expanse in the mid-1760s. France then became concerned that the British might establish its superiority in the area, and welcomed Louis de Bougainville's proposal for a voyage of exploration, which was undertaken in 1766-9. Bougainville's first task was to hand over to Spain a colony he had established on the Falkland Islands. This done, he sailed through the still imperfectly-known Straits of Magellan and into the poorly charted Southern Pacific. He made a number of discoveries in the south-west, but was much too late to discover Tahiti, where Samuel Wallis had preceded him by less than a year. Reports on Bougainville's reception there and on life in the island were to create wide interest and controversy in Europe. He then sailed through the Samoan Islands and on to Vanuatu, as far as the edge of the Australian Great Barrier Reef, and north towards New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. He made a number of discoveries, endeavouring to complete the inadequate charts of the times, and leaving his name to a number of features, the best known of which is the island of Bougainville. He returned home by way of the Dutch East Indies and the Indian Ocean. His voyage led to further French voyages to the Pacific, for which Bougainville acted as adviser. His achievements and his influence were recognized in his promotion to rear-admiral, his election to the Institut de France, and his appointment as a senator and count by Napoleon I. The bougainvillea flower, discovered during his voyage, was so named in his honour by the expedition's naturalist. Although Bougainville published an account of his voyage in 1771, his original journal was published only in 1977; the present volume makes the latter text available for the first time in English translation."--BOOK JACKET
