New Guinea : Picturesque Atlas Publishing Co.

A detailed map of New Guinea, with an alpha-numeric border and index of place-names to verso. This incredibly comprehensive map was published as part of the "Picturesque Atlas Of Australasia". An epic publishing venture designed to commemorate the centenary of Australia, the atlas was not a commercial success but was as informative and attractive as intended. As an early example of machine colouring in lithography, some colour displacement has taken place - nevertheless a very interesting map.
