A later edition of a detailed nineteenth-century map of Western Australia and Tasmania, 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 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". It was first issued by Baldwin and Craddock, and then re-issued by other publishers, here Charles Knight. The map was engraved by J & C Walker whose imprint appears at the lower right of the map.
