Dear Colleagues

if you visit: (either through the French language or the English 
language accesss)

you will now find an access (download) to all documentation available on 
the early encounters between Samoans and Europeans: between 1722 (Dutch) 
and 1824 (for non French: British and German-Russian), and up to 1838 
for the French. All French language docs are available in English 
translation, in addition to the original, some of them for the first time.

In 2008, a first collection (a volume of photocopies) was given to Samoa 
National Archives (and NUS Library), in addition to the Head of State 
private collection,  and the American Samoa Archives. But from that 
paper volume, only two texts have been put on line in our web site 
(visit of Lafond de Lurcy in 1831, with one page missing; and visit of 
Dumont d'Urville in 1838). Now these two have been updated and, more 
importantly, all the other items of the 2008 volume together with a 
number of newly added material gathered during these recent years, have 
been made available on line in our website.

Among other informations, one can now view the successive maps which 
show the invented (or misheard) names that have been given by those 
visitors to each Samoan island: maps from the expedition of:

1768-Bougainville: doc DHS 2c..., pages 2-3

1787-La Pérouse: doc DHS 3e3..., pages 3-9

1824-Kotzebue: doc DHS 4c2

1838-D'Urville: doc DHS 6d2

Bonne visite!
