Australia and New Zealand - Antique Map from 1864

Genuine antique
dated:

1864

Description:

First atlas issue of this detailed and up to-date map of Australia and New Zealand. Identified as the first issue, by the lack of a map number in Roman numerals at top right that all later issues have, as well as showing Australia prior to the separation of Queensland from New South Wales which occurred on 6th June 1859. There are three insets; Victoria, New South Wales, the Goldfields of Mount Alexander.

Fullarton initially published and issued the maps for the The Royal Illustrated Atlas of the Modern World, in twenty seven parts from 1854 to 1862 which buyers would have had to have have bound. Then in 1864 he released a bound edition of the atlas which contained all the maps. The maps for both the parts and the first issue of the bound atlas do not have the maps numbered at top right. Given that most buyers of the maps in parts would have had them subsequently bound, it is consequently not possible to identify any these maps as being from the parts once they were later bound within an atlas and a date of 1864 has to be attributed (unless a map can be verified as been sourced from one of the original parts).

From Fullarton. A. The Royal Illustrated Atlas of the Modern World.
