Australia : A. K. Johnston

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Apparently an intermediate state, not listed in Tooley, of this magnificent map of Australia (lacking an imprint but without "Victoria" named). The bounds of South Australia and counties in New South Wales and Western Australia are shown. A large horseshoe-shaped Lake Torrens is postulated with an accompanying note. The discoveries of Cook, Tasman and others are noted; some geographical information is given such as "Low Level Country" or "High Cliffs" in otherwise unexplored areas. The northern coast of Tasmania is just visible. A.K. Johnston came of a respected Victorian geographical family, styling himself "Geographer At Edinburgh In Ordinary To The Queen".
