  • Australia Unveiled – Gunter Schilder Signed limited copy number 184 of 250

    Australia Unveiled – Gunter Schilder Signed limited copy number 184 of 250

    Title continues … “the share of the Dutch navigators in the discovery of Australia”

    Gunter Schilder’s landmark book about the Dutch role in the discovery of Australia. Published by Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, Amsterdam in 1976, translated from German by Olaf Richter. Schilder then lecturing in cartography at the Geographical Institute of the University of Utrecht.

    According to a label on the half title this is number 184 of 250 copies of Australia Unveiled etc reserved for distribution in Australia. Then boldly signed in blue ink by the author. A very good if not fine copy.

    Starts at first principles with the era of a geographical concept that there must be a fifth continent and the Dutch view of that south-land. The Medieval view and Johann Schoner’s globes and the transfer to Mercator. The hypotheses of the 16th century and the Dieppe school and work of de Eredia. Explorations followed and the extension of Dutch sea-power in the East Indies. Leading to the discovery and the voyage of Willem Jansz and van Roossengin in the Duyfken and the landfall of Dirk Hartog in the Eendracht in 1616. The voyages of the Pera and Arnhem in 1623 and the Golden Zeepaard in 1627 and of course the drama of the Batavia in 1629. And finally, the great voyages of Abel Tasman in 1642-3 and 1644.

    The whole wonderfully cross referenced to early maps and charts. Some within the body of the work and then others “Tooley style” at the rear.

    Required work number 184 of 250 signed copies

    Giblin’s sought after account of early discoveries in Tasmania. First edition 1928. A second companion and extension volume was published later and posthumously … This which is effectively volume I is consequently usually alone.

    Illustrated with three plates and twelve fold out charts which really make the book. Foxing to page edges nothing on the maps which are all fine. Rare to still find it in its dust jacket.

    Begins with Tasman and his journal and the Dutch and English East India Companies. Cook and his First Voyage and Marion du Fresne. The settlement of Australia and the Bounty the La Perouse and Cox. Bligh’s second voyage Tahiti bound and the searching voyage of Bruny d’Entrecasteaux. Hayes who went further and the “establishing era” of Flinders, Bass under the directions of Hunter. The first settlements at Risdon Cove, Sullivan Cove and Port Dalrymple and the sophistication of the Baudin voyage.

    Giblin pulled it together very well
