Abstract

During his circumnavigation of the globe in 1824–1826, French Captain Hyacinthe de Bougainville visited Malacca in 1824. In his official journal of the voyage, translated here for the first time, he describes the town of Malacca and discusses the transfer of Malacca from the Dutch to the English, the decline in Malacca’s trade following the establishment of a British settlement at Singapore, and English dominance of the Malacca Strait.

The translation presented here was prepared by Colin Dyer based on Baron Hyacinthe de Bougainville (1837), Journal de la navigation autour du globe de “La Thétis” et de “L’Espérance” pendant les années 1824, 1825, et 1826, 2 vols, Paris: A. Bertrand. 2 vols.
