Scarce example of Reinecke's map of Oceana.

Includes a marvelous early depiction of Neu Holland vormals Ulimaroa.

New Zealand is two islands. Hawaii is shown.

Reinecke's 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 state of the map includes 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).
