Comments: This map of New South Wales in Australia focuses on the coast from the Endeavor Strait south to Furneaux Island, with cities and ports labeled. Louisiane and Solomon's Isles are visible at the top of the map, while insets show details of Lord Howe's Island, Norfolk Island, Port Jackson, and Botany Bay. Published just about 50 years after Captain Cook first discovered New South Wales in 1770, the map dates to a period of growing British involvement under the leadership of governor Lieutenant-Colonel Lachlan Macquarie, who improved infrastructure particularly in the city of Sydney. The map is in good condition with wide top and bottom margins. Minor tears to paper edges not affecting the image. Raised in a family of publishers and book sellers, Mathew Carey (1760--1839) became one of the most important figures of early American cartography. Carey was based in Philadelphia, where he owned a publishing firm and oversaw a cottage system of independent artists and craftsmen. His important "Atlas" was the first American-published atlas of the United States. Furthermore, the maps his firm produced represent some of the best quality and most informative depictions of the United States in the early period after it gained independence. This map is a wonderful example of his fine work.
