About This Item

London: John Arrowsmith, 1853. Map of the south eastern Australia with the gold fields of New South Wales and Victoria marked in gold. Arrowsmith was privy to the most recent information from the colonies as the cartographer for the British Crown, and his maps are not only detailed and up-to-date but works of art. There is text in the upper central quadrant "Reference Gold Fields in New South Wales" which includes the names of the fields along with those in the new colony of Victoria. All gold fields are shaded in gold while the holdings of the Australian Agricultural Co. appear in purple, which is quite striking. There is also outline color in blue. 68 counties listed under New South Wales, and 24 listed in Port Phillip (a carry over from the era before Victoria was named.) Printed in the lower right hand corner is a list detailing the "Routes of Travellers into the interior" from 1817 to 1840. "London Pubd 2d Jany 1853, by John Arrowsmith, 10 Soho Square". 24 x 20 1/2". Printed on thin paper with the original folds strengthened. Libraries Australia ID 46007789. Tooley page 250 #84.
