Large inset of Sydney and Port Jackson. Second chart is all of New South Wales and Queensland up to about Hazelwood. The finest imaginable detail throughout. Third chart has large insets of Western Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand. Smaller inset details the Isthmus of Auckland. A matched set of three maps.
All precisely engraved with delicate coloring. A little very light & scattered foxing.
