Description

Scarce map of New South Wales, based upon the map of John Oxley in 1822.

The map divides Australia into 9 districts.

John Joseph William Molesworth Oxley (1784 - 1828) was an explorer and surveyor of Australia in the early period of British colonization. He served as Surveyor General of New South Wales and is perhaps best known for his two expeditions into the interior of New South Wales and his discovery of the Brisbane River in what is now the state of Queensland.
