    Description:
    Rare map by Phillipe Buache of the Pacific Ocean and is one of the earliest attempts at thematic mapping in the field of geology. This map illustrates Buache's theory that geological features of land masses, particularly mountain ranges, continue under the surface of the oceans and interconnect the continents. Buache was a French geographer who studied under Guillaume Delisle and was nominated royal geographer in 1729. He established the division of the world by seas and river systems and believed in a southern continent, a hypothesis which was confirmed by later discoveries.

    PI 1789 DJUR 064 (RW04)
    Description:

    Famous map with the name Ulimaroa used for the Australian continent .

    Djurberg published the first Swedish map in 1780 (Tooley 446. p.58), which showed Cook's first voyage discoveries in Australia and the Pacific. He applied the name Ulimaroa to the Australian mainland, propagating its use by various mapmakers well into the 19th century.

    Djurberg's use of the name was based on Cook's account of his time in New Zealand 'the large island Ulimaroa, which in old geographies is known as New Holland. On page 436 of Hawkesworth's rendition of Cook's first voyage, Ulimaroa is mentioned as the biggest island in the world. I should give a reason for this name. This land is called New Holland in a lot of maps, but for what reason I do not know; there is no similarity between Holland in Europe and this land, neither in size nor in the area's character. You find in the account of the famous English sailor Cook's journeys that when he was on the northern coast of New Zealand, he asked the inhabitants there if they knew any other country, to which they replied that to the north-west of their home, a quite large land was located, which they called Ulimaroa. I have decided to maintain this name as given to this land by its neighbours; besides it is better than New Holland.'

    The two passages in the published account of James Cook's first voyage, by Hawkesworth in 1773, relating to Ulimaroa are:

    Saturday 5 February 1769Volume 2, page 372:

    'This place we concluded to be the land difcovered by Tafman, which he called CAPE MARIA VAN DIEMEN, and finding thefe people fo intelligent, we inquired farther, if they knew of any country befides their own: they anfwered, that they never had vifisted any other, but that their anceftors had told them, that to the N.W. by N., or N.N.W. there was a country of great extent, called Ulimaroa, which people had failed in a very large canoe...'

    Monday 5 February 1770, Volume 2, page 402:

    'When we were under fail, our old man aTopaa came on board to take his leave of us, and as we were ftill defirous of making farther enquiries whether any memory of Tafman had been preferved among thefe people, Tupia was directed to afk him whether he had ever heard that fuch a veffel as ours had vifited the country. To this he replied in the negative, but faid, that his anceftors had told him there had once come to this place a fmall veffel, from a distant country, called Ulimaroa, in which were four men, who, upon coming on fhore, were all killed: upon being afked where this diftant land lay, he pointed to the northward. Of Ulimaroa we had heard fome-thing before, from people about the Bay of Iflands, who faid that their anceftors had vifisted it; and Tupia had alfo talked to us of Ulimaroa....' sic

    Early map of Australia showing the recent charting of the southern coast and the discovery of Bass Strait. 


    A feature of this map is the interesting historical naming. The western half of the mainland is named Neu Holland and below this, the name 
    Ulimarou. The historical discoveries on the western and northern coasts reflect the Dutch role up to the discoveries made by Tasman on his second voyage in 1643-3 and include those made on the western side of Cape York Peninsula from 1606 to 1643-4. The southern coast shows the recent discoveries made by the French voyage of exploration under the command of Nicholas Baudin in the ships the Naturalist and Geographe in 1802-3. The eastern half is shown with discoveries of James Cook in the Endeavour in 1770.

    Description:

    Attractive map of New South Wales and Van Dieman's Land, with insets of Norfolk and Lord Howe Islands. Also shows part of New Caledonia and the Solomon Islands. The area marked 'unexplored' at the southern end of the map was soon to be explored by Thomas Mitchell on his third expedition in 1836 where he found rich grazing land and named the region 'Australia Felix'.

    The inset of Lord Howe Island is based on the map in the First Fleet account by Governor Arthur Phillip in 1789, the one of Norfolk was based on the map published in Hunter's Journal issued in 1793. The inset map of Van Diemen's Land is based on Scott's map issued in 1824.
