Large Weimar map of Australasia

Johann Matthias Christoph Reinecke (1768-1818) of Halberstadt and Koburg was the official cartographer to the Geographical Institute in Weimar. His General Charte von Australien was republished five times between 1801 and 1820 (although Tooley notes only four), and with each edition the latest information was added with new place names appearing and unknown sections of the coast filled in. This is the second state of the map with additional names in New South Wales appearing including Mount Warning north of Sydney and Entrecasteaux Island and Legrands Bay added on the South Coast. North of Bass Strait, Shanks and Portland Bays are named.

In all editions Australia is named "New Holland formerly Ulimaroa" and, rather peculiarly, on the right of the continent is the wording New South Wales or Sydney Cove (Neu Süd Wallis oder Sydney-Cove).
