Rare copper engraving showing the shipwreck of two small boats that were part of the La Perouse Expedition, during their reconnaissance of Lituya Bay, near Juneau, Alaska.

The view depicts a group of French crew members fight storm in small boats as sailing ship at right comes to rescue, with the rocky mountains of the Alaskan Coastal range in distance.

The view is very rare. We locate examples in the Californis State Library, Yale (Beinecke Library).
