Norfolk Island / S. End Of Norfolk Island : J. Stockdale

click here to view a large version in a separate window

The first map of Norfolk Island off the Australian east coast. Norfolk Island was first discovered in 1774 by Captain James Cook. The island, then uninhabited, was considered a fine place to settle and to take advantage of the 'Norfolk Island pines', which were believed to be ideal for ship masts. The Island was settled six weeks after the First Fleet's settlement in Sydney. Unusually the settlement on Norfolk was also named Sydney, which obviously may have created some confusion back in England. This double plan appeared in the account of Arthur Phillip, who had led the First Fleet, with Cook to Australasia and Polynesia, discovering and establishing Botany Bay. This map was produced soon after the islands were occupied, it shows the site of the settlement at Sydney Bay and the reefs and rocks in the bay that made landing so perilous. Reinforcement to old folds and minor marginal nicks, but very acceptable.
