The Napoleonic era was a period of major transition.

Starbuck examines Baudin's captainship, life on board the ship, the details of the stop in Port Jackson and the 'new voyage' that followed
Portés par l'air du temps by John West-Sooby( )

Originaire de l'île de Ré, Nicolas Baudin (1754-1803) est un fameux navigateur-explorateur français. Ce volume part à la quête des différentes étapes de son périple. Après un court passage dans l'armée navale à la fin des années 1770, Nicolas Baudin rejoignit son cousin Peltier, armateur à Nantes et ami de Beaumarchais, pour le compte duquel il navigua le long des côtes nord-américaines à l'époque troublée de la guerre d'Indépendance des États-Unis.Une rencontre, dans la ville du Cap, avec le jardinier de Joseph II lui donna l'occasion de travailler pour l'empereur comme transporteur puis récolteur d'objets d'histoire naturelle. Il devint, en 1792, officier de la marine autrichienne. Après la Révolution, il passa au service de la France, plus exactement à celui du Muséum d'histoire naturelle de Paris, alors dirigé par Antoine-Laurent de Jussieu, pour lequel il mena une expédition botanique aux Antilles. Ce voyage fut un immense succès au point qu'au retour de La Belle Angélique, le vaisseau du capitaine, Jussieu déclara : « le citoyen Baudin est un des voyageurs qui a le plus mérité des sciences naturelles ». Il put ainsi convaincre le premier consul, Bonaparte, et l'Institut de France de lui confier les rênes d'un voyage de découvertes aux Terres australes. Il quitta Le Havre en octobre 1800 aux commandes de deux vaisseaux de la République, Le Géographe et Le Naturaliste. Las, ce voyage fut un enfer pour Baudin : le rejet de son autorité par les officiers, l'indiscipline des savants à bord, de multiples dissensions, une santé défaillante, tout se ligua contre lui et sa réputation en fut complètement ternie.Baudin mourut en 1803, à l'Île-de-France, sur le chemin de retour du Géographe en France, sans jamais avoir eu l'occasion d'être confronté à ses détracteurs.Les contributions rassemblées dans ce volume portent sur les différentes étapes de la vie de Baudin. Elles permettent de mieux cerner la personnalité du capitaine, personnage atypique qui aimait à dire qu'il préférait voir son nom associé à une nouvelle espèce de mollusque qu'à une île inconnue. Naturaliste récolteur plutôt que savant naturaliste, Nicolas Baudin était un homme de talent, de volonté et de passion. Cet ouvrage entend lui rendre hommage
Constructing the "perfect" voyage : Nicolas Baudin at Port Jackson, 1802 by Nicole Starbuck( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1802, a French scientific expedition under the command of Nicolas Baudin made an unscheduled visit to the British colony at Port Jackson, New South Wales. It was a pivotal episode in the course of Baudin's Australian voyage. The commander had already fulfilled most of his instructions, though imperfectly, and only the north coast of New Holland remained unexamined. He and his men stayed at anchor in Port Jackson for over five months. When they set sail once more, they embarked on what historians agree was a new phase of the expedition. Baudin and his men did not proceed directly to the north coast, but returned to the southern and western coasts, where they perfected and augmented the work in geography and natural history that they had carried out earlier. This thesis examines what occurred during the sojourn at Port Jackson, as well as the circumstances that led up to it, in order to determine in precise terms why and how this episode came to be a turning point in Baudin's voyage. It asks: was the second campaign just an extension of the first or was it an opportunity for Baudin to redefine the voyage? The Port Jackson sojourn thus serves as a site of interrogation regarding the nature of Nicolas Baudin's leadership and the construction, on British colonial territory, of a French scientific voyage. However, the opportunity to gain real insight into the sojourn of the voyagers at Port Jackson has been limited by a perceived scarcity of resources. The fact that Baudin's journal falls silent here has meant that there is no one privileged source of information on the commander's role or on the day-to-day activities of the expeditioners, and that scholars examining this episode have tended to focus on the details of the larger picture rather than on the larger picture itself. This is not to say that the presence of the Baudin expedition in Port Jackson has left no material traces. In fact, there is a diverse range of archival records - expense accounts, correspondence, inventories of specimens, journals kept by officers and [savants?] and the logbooks of the Geographe - from which the day-to-day life of the commander and his men at Port Jackson can be reconstructed. Commencing with an analysis of the events that led up to the sojourn and influenced Baudin's approach to it, this study examines the relationships that Baudin built in the colony, his manner of command aboard the Geographe and the scientific results of the stay. After then analysing the way in which Baudin managed the sojourn and planned the second campaign, we conclude that Baudin did not simply seek to satisfy the expectations of his superiors but in fact he seized this opportunity to create the "perfect" scientific voyage."[taken from abstract]
