Single sheet, octavo, manuscript in brown ink, written on one side only, undated but probably 1842, a note from the hydrographer Vincendon-Dumoulinto Dumont d'Urville's publisher, Casimir Gide, suggesting an amendment to one of the maps in the fourth volume of Dumont d'Urville's Voyage au Pôle Sud (Vincendon-Dumoulin was the editor of the work, published in 24 volumes between 1842 and 1854): "Si la carte du 4ème volume (iles Viti) n'et pas tirée, nous y ferons ajouter un nom d'ile qui est désignée dans la narration. C'est une omission de peu d'importance et qui, dans tous les cas, ne fera pas grand bruit si on ne peut plus la réparer"; signed Dumoulin; the note closes with "Salut et amitié à MM. Gide et Beadry"; original folds; clean and legible. Vincendon-Dumoulin sailed with Dumont d'Urville to the Antarctic and the Pacific on the second voyage of theAstrolabe(1837-40). He was responsible for drawing the first map ofAdélie Land. After the expedition, he acted as the principal editor ofVoyage au Pôle Sud.
