    Description:

    The first chart devoted to the South Australian coast from the important French voyage of exploration under the command of Nicholas Baudin. With the publication of this map the final piece in the charting of the Southland was complete. At top right is a superb decorative title with the figure of Mercury holding a banner and garland, below are kangaroos and elephant seals based on drawings by Charles Lesueur while in the background are two ships, presumably meant to be the Naturaliste and Geographe. The French ignored Flinders charting and the naming of the same area using only French names, many of which have been retained.

    In October 1800, Nicolas Baudin commanded an expedition to the south seas to complete the French survey of the Australian coastline, and make scientific observations. The two ships, Le Geographe and Le Naturaliste, arrived near Cape Leeuwin in May 1801. Following instructions issued in France, both ships sailed north along the western coast of the continent. After staying at Timor, the French then sailed south to survey Van Diemen's Land [Tasmania]. In following this itinerary, they missed the opportunity to be the first Europeans to survey the unknown southern coast.

    By early April 1802 Baudin in Le Geographe was in South Australian waters. He sailed westwards along the southern coastline, meeting Flinders at Encounter Bay, and continuing to Golfe de la Mauvaise [Gulf St Vincent] and Golfe de la Melomanie [Spencer Gulf], giving French names to many locations already named by Flinders. At Cape Adieu the survey was abandoned and Baudin sailed for Port Jackson where Le Naturaliste had already arrived.

    After wintering at Port Jackson, Baudin returned to the southern coast for a more detailed survey, and in January 1803 circumnavigated Ile Borda [Kangaroo Island]. While Baudin anchored at Nepean Bay, Freycinet and the geographer Boullanger explored the two gulfs in Casuarina - Le Naturaliste had been sent back to France with its scientific collections. By the end of February Le Geographe and Casuarina rendezvoused at King George Sound, and then explored the west and northwest coasts of 'New Holland', before heading home via Timor.

    Baudin died in 1803 on the homeward voyage, so publication of the account and charts of his voyage was undertaken by Francois Peron, the expedition's naturalist. The first volume of Voyage de decouvertes aux Terres Australes and Volume I of Atlas, which included plates, was released in 1807. French place names were recorded for 'Terre Napoleon' west of Wilson's Promontory. As Peron died in 1810, cartographer Louis de Freycinet continued to edit the voyage's account, and in 1811 he published the second part of Atlas, which featured the charts of the expedition, again recording French place names on 'Terre Napoleon.'

    The French expedition's charts were published in 1811 - three years before Flinders'. Freycinet's Carte General de la Nouvelle Hollande was therefore the first chart of Australia, bringing together the results of English and French surveys. The French charts are generally acknowledged as beautiful with their elaborate title cartouches with flora and fauna. However, Flinders' charts are notably superior, in particular those of the now revealed 'unknown coast'. Flinders was meticulous for the precise surveying he carried out, both onboard the Investigator and ashore. Matthew Flinders and his brother Samuel, who was responsible for the astronomical observations that were so necessary a part of the survey, were extremely competent surveyors, far more so than those on the French expedition.

    In the end however, claims of 'primacy' - or who was where first - were what mattered most to the authorities and to Flinders. With the French charts published first, with French names along the length of the South Australian coast, they laid a claim to that portion of the continent and called it Terre Napoleon. When Flinders' charts were finally published in July 1814, he was scrupulous in honouring prior discoveries on the coast - hence 'Discovered by Nuyts 1627' and 'Discovered by Captn. Baudin 1802', which marked the western and eastern limits of his discoveries.

    It was not until the second edition of Voyage de decouvertes aux Terres Australes was published in 1824 that French place names were only recorded where the French had been the first to survey along the southern coast, mainly in the south-east and on the southern coast of Kangaroo Island, and Flinders' discoveries and place names were restored by the French authorities.

    Description:

    Rare map of Nepean Bay, Kangaroo Island with an inset of Rapid Bay by Colonel William Light, Surveyor-General of South Australia.

    Light had been instructed to scout and survey various sites in the colony for preparation of a new state capital. Many of the surveyed sites such as those at Nepean Bay, Kangaroo Island, Endeavour Bay and Port Lincoln, were finally rejected due to a lack of fresh water supply and poor soil quality. Light found Rapid Bay to be plausible but decided against it after surveying the Adelaide plains. The South Australian Company, formed by George Fife Angas and other wealthy British merchants in 1835, had founded a settlement at Kingscote, Nepean Bay in 1836. The settlers soon found the area to be unsuitable for farming, prompting them to seek out another site for the fledgling colony.

    Description:

    Scarce map of the Flinders Ranges showing the tracks of Captain Edward Charles Frome, Royal Engineer and third Surveyor-General of South Australia.

     Frome had arrived in the colony in September 1839 and undertook extensive surveys of the country areas around Adelaide, allocating sites for roads and secondary towns. The Flinders Ranges had been surveyed by Edward John Eyre in 1839 who proposed that Lake Torrens was part of a large horseshoe-shaped salt-pan lake which would prevent exploration into central Australia. Frome attempted to break through the lake barrier in 1843 and discovered what he believed to be the eastern part of Lake Torrens but was in fact a separate body of water, later named Lake Frome. This map shows Lake Frome in the top right, to the east of the ranges, with the label ‘L. Torrens’. The myth of the horseshoe lake persisted until Gregory’s expedition in 1858.

    Description:

    Rare map showing the route of John McDouall Stuart, 1859 & 1860 to the west of Lake Eyre.

    Stuart's April-July 1859 route shown in red, his November-January 1860 route shown in green. Place names in English, notes on topography in German.

    Stuart led his first expedition in 1858, departing from the Chambers' station at Oratunga on 14 May 1858. He was accompanied by just two men, one of whom was an Aboriginal, and with five horses and six weeks provisions. They rounded the southern end of Lake Torrens travelling up its western side and at its northern tip turned north-west. Stuart discovered a large tree lined creek which he named Chambers Creek. Stuart would use this as an advance depot for all of his expeditions. He continued in a north-westerly direction and travelled as far as today's Coober Pedy. The country was terrible - reminding Stuart of Sturt's Stony Desert, and extremely difficult for the horses. He turned back, heading south to Denial Bay which was reached on 17 August, and then along the coast to Gibson's Station at Streaky Bay. After resting here for sometime Stuart returned to Mount Arden. Stuart set out on his second expedition 2 April 1859. On this expedition a number of mound springs were discovered. These would provide permanent water sources for further explorations and pastoralists. Stuart travelled as far north as 27 latitude, discovering the Neales River flowing into Lake Eyre North and he considered the country as good as that adjacent to Chambers Creek. Some days later he saw some distance to the north-east a 'large dark-coloured hill' which he named after Dr JH Browne, from Sturt's expedition of 1844. At this point he decided to return and reached Glen's Station on 3 July. William Kekwick joined Stuart for the first time on the third expedition, and would remain with him for all of the remaining journeys. Again financed by the Chambers Brothers, Stuart was this time better equipped for surveying and this enabled the creation of more accurate maps. They were provisioned for three months and had 12 horses. They again travelled to Chambers Creek, discovering more springs. The expedition continued north, surveying as it went. At length in late December Stuart decided to return as provisions were running low. The expedition had reached further north into South Australia than anyone had previously. Stuart remained at Chambers Creek while Kekwick returned to Chambers' Station at Moolooloo with the reports of the land surveyed and to seek more men. Stuart was already planning the fourth journey.

    The Burke and Wills expedition established a Depot Camp on Cooper Creek at Camp LXV, (their sixty-fifth camp since leaving Melbourne), at a place now called The Dig Tree. There was a depot at the Dig Tree from 6 December 1860 to 21 April 1861. The Victorian Contingent Party under Alfred Howitt was sent by the Victorian government to establish the fate of the expedition. Howitt found the remains of both leaders, Robert O'Hara Burke and William John Wills and buried them close to where the town is located today. He also found the sole survivor, John King living amongst and cared for by the Yandruwandha aboriginals, and returned him to Melbourne

    Description:
    Map showing the route of the Moravian missionary expedition led by Gottlieb Walder in Cooper Creek region, South Australia.

    In 1864 two Moravian Brothers, Gottlieb Walder and Heinrich Meissel, arrived from Germany to establish a mission on the Cooper's Creek. This was partly in gratitude to the Aboriginal people of the area who had cared for John King, a survivor of the Burke and Wills expedition in 1861. After some delay, the missionaries left Adelaide in 1866 and arrived at Kopperamanna six months later, only to find that Lutheran missionaries had already established another mission nearby.

    Also shows expedition routes of Sturt (1845), Goyder (1857), Freeling (1857), Jacob (1857), McKInley (1861), Howitt (1862).

    Scarce hydrographic chart of the South Australian coast extending from Cape Catastrophe to The Great Australian Bight Surveyed by Staff Commr. F.Howard R.N., assisted by Navg. Lieut. W.N.Goalen, Navg. Sub-Lieutts. H.Roxby & A.Leeper R.N.1873-9. 

    With insets of Fowlers Bay Port Eyre, Denial and Smoky Bays, Streaky Bay, Waterloo Bay, Coffin Bay and Venus Bay, and two land profiles of Flinders Island and Waldgrave Island. First issued in 1875, this map has small corrections up to 1940.

    The regular updating of Hydrographic charts by the Hydrographic Office was to ensure that commanders of ships, pilots and other mariners were able to have the most to up to date information available to safely navigate foreign waters and ports as new information of changes to sea depths, sand bars, wrecks or other any other pertinent nautical information that could hinder passage became available. As updated charts were offered for sale, the earlier outdated charts in the hands of mariners, pilots, ships owners and sailors were invariably discarded, subsequently making all British Admiralty issued hydrographic charts of the period rare.
