Antique Map Auction Sale No. 110 - closed 3/2/2005
Lovely map of New South Wales with remarkable detail along the coastline. The map predates the discovery of gold in NSW and does not contain the notations concerning gold diggings found in later issues. Well rendered vignettes of the Seal of New South Wales, Sydney Cove, The Murray and a plant called Xanthorrhaea. The large vignette of Sydney is a lovely bird's-eye view from the harbor. Surrounded by a delicately engraved decorative border. Borders and vignettes uncolored, as issued.
