"In July 1815 Choris, at the age of 20, joined Otto von Kotzebue's expedition on the Rurik as the official artist. This was the first Russian circumnavigation devoted exclusively to scientific purposes and several well-known scientists contributed greatly to its success. Choris made a great many drawings during this voyage. In 1822 he published Voyage Pittoresque autour du monde .. Despite his using many of his drawings in that work, Choris found 24 subjects among the remaining drawings which he published 4 years later in [the present work]" (Lada-Mocarski). The plates are of subjects from the Atlantic and Pacific and include five of the coast of Brazil, three in Chile, eleven in the South Pacific and Hawaii, and the remainder in Kamchatka, the Marianas, Manila, the Cape of Good Hope and St. Helena. "Choris' drawings are original and faithful pictorial representations of the subjects he drew" (Lada-Mocarski).
