    Freycinet accompanied Nicholas Baudin on his famous voyage to complete the French mapping of Australia. Baudin leader aboard Le Geographie and Freycinet aboard Le Naturaliste. Whilst in Sydney Baudin sent the Naturalist home with the records of their effort so far and purchased a vessel from Philip Gidley King, the Casuarina, which he placed under Freycinet’s command. Baudin died on the final voyage home and the task of writing up the travels fell to the naturalist Francois Peron. Sadly, he in turn died before completing the work and the mantle was passed to Louis Freycinet who completed that task and produced the magnificent accompanying atlas.

  • Tasman’s Kaart – van Zijn Australische Ontdekkingen 1644 – Dr F.C. Wielder

    Tasman’s Kaart – van Zijn Australische Ontdekkingen 1644 – Dr F.C. Wielder

    The landmark book by distinguished cartographic expert Dr F.C. Wielder. Published by Martinus Nijhoff, the Hague, Holland in 1942.

    A full study of the cartography stemming from the Tasman voyages. Without the large folding Bonaparte map as nearly always. Notwithstanding that, there are nineteen maps and coastal views reproduced, some double page and one double page with fold-out.

    Published in Dutch with a minimal amount of English content … the cartographically inclined can follow the gist without language knowledge … but it obviously helps!

    Large quarto, 140 pages, original blue cloth covered boards with paper label. Some age to the exterior, internally very good.

    References maps include those from Gerritsz, Tasman’s Journal, Jacobsen, Gilesmans, Vingboons and of course Thevenot … the first near full map devoted to Australia.

  • Van Dieman’s Land –  Cartographer John Dower – 1836

    Van Dieman’s Land – Cartographer John Dower – 1836

    An original map of Tasmania or Van-Diemans Land, drawn and engraved by John Dower published in London in the 1830’s. Note the misspelling “Dieman’s”. This is a very early version of the Dower map published by Orr & Smith of Paternoster Row, London. Engraved area 26cm by 21cm. Very good condition, clean and bright colouring. Refer Tooley Printed Maps of Tasmania number 196.

    This map was first published in 1831. In this updated version Lake St Clair is added. And bottom left the following note … Population 31,718; Capitol(sic) Hobart Town; The estimated average importation of Convicts into Van Dieman’s Land is 1,709 per Annum.

    Much of the terrain to the west half remains unexplored. A number of interesting features can be found in the detail. Above the “rocky and barren shore” below Rocky Point in the west we see “White topped mountains apparently granite”, north of which are “Higher and less barren hills”. Travelling north from Hobart Town are a string of pubs … The Stokell Inn, Crown Inn, Swan Inn, Ransome Inn, Lovely Bank Inn, New Inn, Sorrell Spring Inn, Stockers In and on to Launceston. Whilst known high ground is shown with hachures certain peaks are estimated … Ben Lomond 4,200 feet, Peak of Teneriffe 4,500 feet, interestingly not Mt Wellington.

    John Dower (1791-1847) was a quality map maker, print seller and publisher based in London. He worked with many prominent map makers of the time including Weller, Cassell, Bacon and Petermann.

  • Magic Lantern Slide – Cartographic Material – The Ross Dependency – Antarctica c1923 on Its Formation

    Magic Lantern Slide – Cartographic Material – The Ross Dependency – Antarctica c1923 on Its Formation

    An original magic lantern slide showing clearly the New Zealand Ross Dependency, by Newton & Co.

    The Ross Dependency takes its name from Sir James Clark Ross ho discovered the Ross Sea and Victoria Land in 1841 and claimed the region for Britain.

    The region is defined by a sector originating at the South Pole and passing along longitude 160 degrees east and 150 degrees east and stopping at latitude 60 degrees south.

    On 30th July 1923 an order was published in the Government Gazette of the Dominion of New Zealand that the region should be named the “Ross dependency”’ and that the Governor-General and Commander in Chief of New Zealand will be Governor of the Territory.

    Newton & Co were formed in 1858. In the period 1912-1925 they had premises in Covent Garden. S we are pretty sure that the slide comes from 1923 and was prepared for presentations concerning these changes.

    Standard size circa 3.5 inches or 8cm by 8cm.

  • Thomas Cook’s – Tours of Egypt the Nile, Sudan, Palestine and Syria -1928

    Thomas Cook’s – Tours of Egypt the Nile, Sudan, Palestine and Syria -1928

    We love this 110 page brochure advertising Thomas Cook’s tours in the style of Poirot and Death on the Nile.

    It would take us a week to explain the depth of information, photographs, maps, intricate details of each of the numerous vessels with photos of the cabins, saloons etc. End paper maps and layout of each of the vessels.

    Very good condition albeit some pencil annotations of a planned holiday – luck bastards!
