Map Of South Australia, New South Wales, Van Diemen's Land : J.Wyld

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A very detailed and finely engraved map of the major newly-colonised parts of south-eastern Australia, with insets showing Western Australia, Van Diemen's Land, prior to being renamed Tasmania, and plans of Sydney and Adelaide. Although well detailed for the settled areas, the map emphasises the emptiness and unknown nature of the greater part of this huge continent. The James Wylds, father who started the business and died in 1836, and son, who joined the business in 1830, were two of the major cartographers of the period, offering updated versions of earlier plates and also new maps of recently discovered and newly settled areas. This map, first published in 1841, ran through a number of editions with variations to the imprint, as the business address changed, and to the detail on the map. R.V.Tooley in "Mapping Of Australia" describes a number of editions, none of which coincide with the present example, which has an added mileage scale below the title, but lacks geographical additions as listed. A very large plate, with backing to old dissections at the folds, otherwise, very nice.
