Charte von Australien berichtight im November 1812. - Antique Map from 1816

Genuine antique
dated:

1816

Description:

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.
