Paris : Alfred Duquesne, 1881. Nouvelle edition. Sextodecimo, 130 x 82 mm, recased, preserving upper and lower wrappers, pp. 63, very good.

In this curious little volume, Arago’s account of the Freycinet expedition is rendered without employing the letter ‘A’ once, except, notably, on the title page and some notes for clarity at the end. An example of French witticism applied to narrating the grands voyages.
