Figures peintes d'oiseaux [et de reptiles], envoyées de l'Inde par Duvaucel et Diard

From 1818 to their respective deaths, two French zoologists, Alfred Duvaucel (1793-1824) and Pierre Médard Diard (1794-1863) traveled to India and South East Asia: they first explored India and Sumatra, then went their separate ways; Duvaucel stayed in India and Nepal, Diard went to Java, Batavia, Malacca, Cambodia and Vietnam. Both appointed by the French Museum of Natural History in Paris, they were closely connected to the famous French naturalist Georges Cuvier: Duvaucel was his stepson and Diard his student. Commissioned by Stamford Raffles to collect specimens in Sumatra (1819-1820), they were part of the first collecting expedition in Singapore between May and June 1819. During their various trips, they both sent specimens, descriptions and drawings to Paris; the drawings were made locally under their supervision so as to ensure their accuracy. Frédéric Cuvier and Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire used this information for their Natural History of Mammals published in Paris between 1818 and 1842. Drawings, lists of specimens and letters are now kept in the Cuvier Archives at the Central Library of the French National Museum of Natural History in Paris. This first set of digitized drawings related to the Diard and Duvaucel trips to India and South East Asia shows mammals, invertebrates and plants. Identification of the animal species was provided by the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum, Faculty of Science, National University of Singapore.
