This month we have uploaded our Special catalogue of 45 items including Solvyns' great colour plate study of Indian manners and costume, Arago's intimate study of a priest of Guam, together with an 18th Century table globe and a fine watercolour of the iconic Black Swan. Also included are Shaw's catalogue of Tapa: a highly unusual example with extra specimens, Samwell's Narrative of the Death of Cook as well as maps by Brion de la Tour, D'Anville and Sir Thomas Mitchell. The catalogue may be viewed by clicking here

We have also uploaded an occasional list whimsically titled "K" for Kangaroo (to view click here) together with our latest on-line list Portuguese travellers (to view click here).
