There are numerous variants of this map, each displaying unique features. This example has a comparative mountain profile at bottom center as well as a very pronounced erroneous hook shape for Lake Torrens.
A detailed, scarce and interesting mid-19th century German map which could readily be collected on it's own merits, displayed or given as a present.
In VG antiquarian condition, mostly clean overall, light minor age dustiness or trivial small scattered age spotting as seen, original fold-line as issued, overall the map remains clean and attractive.
