This large fine hand coloured original antique map of Australia and Asia was published by John Thomson in his 1817 edition of A New General Atlas of the World.

This large beautiful map of Australia and Asia published only 30 years after the initial settlement of Australia in Botany Bay by the First Fleet is in superb condition. Beautifully hand colored on clean, heavy and sturdy paper this is a wonderful example of this much sort after map. (Ref Tooley M&B)
