Description:

Scarce map of the County of Heytesbury, Victoria from the first county atlas published of the state, extending west to Woodford, to Pirron Yaloak in the east and north to Camperdown and south to Moonlight Head. Roads and pastoral runs are shown. Surrounding the map are detailed lists of Creeks, Stations, Post Towns and Mountains.

Hiscock stated for prospective purchaser the following;

‘This Atlas is the first of the kind ever produced in the colony, and will be thoroughly authentic to date of publication. It will be found eminently useful to the Merchant and Squatter as a work of reference, and to the schollmaster or man of family it is best means extant of furnishing the rising generation of the colony with a thorough geographical knowledge of Victoria’. (June 1874)

From, F.E. Hiscock & Co’s New Victorian Counties Atlas.
