About This Item

London: John Betts, 1855. Very good condition. A pair of maps of South eastern Australia, showing the area pre- gold discovery and post- gold discovery. The first map, South eastern Australia, published in 1848, shows New South Wales extending from Farquhar Inlet down to just below Bateman Bay, with Victoria named Australia Felix, and with an inset at the upper left, Plan of Adelaide, and "Continuation of South Australia inset at lower left. The number 43 on a small paper label at the lower right corner of the map. 15 x 12 1/2". The second Betts map (of the gold regions), is a re-issue of the South Eastern Australia map and shows much new detail. It was separately published for the use of arriving gold miners to Victoria and New South Wales and was referred to as a six penny map. New South Wales now extends from Farquhar Inlet all the way down to Cape Howe. Australia Felix is there, but with Victoria printed below. Gold regions & the shoreline are outlined in color, and relief is shown with hachures. With many topographical notes for the use of prospectors ("poor vegetation and water scarce"), and the river system north of the Darling with much more detail, up to "R. Condamine". Inset of "Port Philip District" and "Continuation of the South Australian Coast Westward." The Port Phillip District inset with many areas highlighted in yellow for gold, and with the city of Melbourne laid out. Rex Nan Kivell Collection Map NK 2456/111; Tooley p25, no 171. Price sixpence in lower right margin, with 2 old folds. 14 3/4 x 12 1/2"
