Thomson Australia
John Thomson. "New Holland and Asiatic Isles." From A New General Atlas. Edinburgh: J. Thomson, 1821. 19 5/8 x 24 1/8. Engraving. Original hand color. A few marginal blemishes. Very good condition.

A very interesting map of Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea and the islands of the southwestern Pacific. In the early nineteenth century, many ships lied these waters in search of whale oil, so knowledge of the islands and continent grew each year. On this map the coast of Australia is clearly delineated. with the coastline nearly drawn and descriptions of the land as seen from the sea given. Settlement was sparse and hugging the coast, as well documented here. New Zealand is also shown with good detail, and the many islands in, for instance, the Spice Islands, Solomons, and New Hebrides are accurately shown. $375
