About This Item

London: John Arrowsmith, 10 Soho Square, 1858. One of John Arrowsmith's superb maps of Australia, this one highlighting the gold districts, and surprisingly, not listed in Tooley or Trove. The map encompasses the coast from Moreton Bay to Spencer Gulf, with an inset map of Australia in the top left corner. The newly proposed New South Wales/Queensland border has been instituted, however the question of the western Queensland border has been avoided by the inset of Australia in the top left corner. (Interestingly, the vignette map of Australia shows the northern border of NSW being an extension of the northern border of South Australia, and "North Australia" is above both of them, not Queensland.) There are 4 lists on the map, "Reference "Gold Fields in New South Wales" ; Counties of New South Wales (68 are listed); "Routes of Travellers into the interior listing 14 expeditions from Oxley in 1817 to Streleski (sic) [Strzelecki] in 1840; Counties in Port Phillip (24 are listed). "London Pubd 2d Jany 1858, by John Arrowsmith, 10 Soho Square". 24 x 20 1/2". Steel engraving with original hand color, central fold. Excellent condition.
