John Thomson 615 x 500 mmD1 / M194 / I98Minor stress and darkening to original fold. Wide margins.

In 1814 Matthew Flinders printed his account of his discovery and charting of the Southern coastlines of Australia shortly before he died. This map printed the same year as flinders’ is an excellent representation of one of the first ’complete’ maps of the continent. Flinders actual map can sell for over $20,000, so this piece offers tremendous value. If you look closely at the area around Spencers gulf you can see that the ink is a bit darker, showing that it has been newly added to the map. Australia at this time was still commonly known as New Holland.
