(Oceania, Australia, West Australia, North Australia, South Australia, Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Van Diemen's Land, Tasmania).
Issued 1862, New York by Johnson & Ward.
Uncommon mid 19th century lithographed map, with original hand color. There are numerous variant issues of this map which closer inspection reveals, especially reflecting interior travels.
Nice looking example, pleasing age patina, top blank margin trimmed slightly narrow to decorative border (still plenty of border for framing), light soiling and small scattered spotting, any minor age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Sheet Measures c. 14" H x 18" W.
