TLF ID R5355
This is a hand-coloured map of Australia, printed between about 1859 and 1861, showing boundaries for what were then the colonies of Western Australia, South Australia, New South Wales and Victoria. There is an area labelled 'North Australia', which includes the present-day Northern Territory and Queensland within the same boundary, without the present-day dividing border. The map is coloured to show colonial boundaries in yellow, the coastline in pink and the ocean in blue. Tasmania is labelled 'VAN DIEMEN'S LAND OR TASMANIA'. The map was first published in London by Peter and Galpin Cassell, probably from a Maclure, MacDonald and MacGregor steam lithograph. It measures 29.0 cm x 41.7 cm.
