A later edition of a detailed nineteenth-century map of New South Wales published by the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge. The Society was founded by John, Earl Russell, and Henry Brougham, later Lord Chancellor of England in 1827. The Society's main purpose was to encourage universal literacy by publishing numbers of books of good quality that would be affordable to the poor. Perhaps the grandest of their publications was their atlas, originally entitled "Maps Of The Society For The Diffusion Of Useful Knowledge", first issued by Baldwin and Craddock, and then re-issued by other publishers, here by Charles Knight. The map was engraved by J & C Walker whose imprint appears at the lower right corner. First issued in 1833, this example shows newly explored, and rapidly developed areas inland and includes, at lower right an inset plan of Sydney. Light age-toning to lower left corner.
