1821 - A Chart of New South Wales, Van Diemen's Land, & C.

Map makerSizeMap IDCondition
J. Aspin 600 x 500 mmD1 / M215 / I128Good condition. Medium offsetting. Minor staining along centre fold. Very nice wide margins.

Aspin's chart shows inset maps of Tasmania, the settlements at Port Jakson and Patterson's river, and of the Australian continent, marked 'New Holland'.

A very nice map showing the extent of exploration in the Australian colonies in the early 1820s. The map shows the tracks of Oxley & Evans 1817-1818 and Howe from Windsor to Patterson's river. For an atlas map and because of its size it has reasonably good detail thought the extent of exploration at the time is very limited. (tooley 1985)
