Freycinet maps New South Wales

Intriguing map of New South Wales and Tasmania prepared by Louis de Freycinet for inclusion in the published account of his expedition titled Voyage autour du monde. This is an example of the first state without numerals. Of special interest is the inset detail of Van Diemen's Land, and two schematic elevation profiles (the first showing altitude from Sydney to Bathurst, the second from Bathurst to Mount Ellendon).

Freycinet is best remembered for his voyage to Australia and the South Pacific of 1817-1820, a pivotal French expedition that advanced scientific and geographical knowledge of the region. The care and detail devoted to the preparation of this map reflect to Freycinet's considerable cartographic skill.
