Item #297781 The Islands of New Zealand. SDUK, Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge.

The Islands of New Zealand

London: Chapman and Hall, 1844.

Map. Engraving. Sheet measures 16" x 13.5". Some light foxing and staining. In very good condition.

This detailed map by the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge or SDUK depicts New Zealand. Incredibly detailed along the coastlines, the interiors are relatively unmapped, reflecting the lack of knowledge of the region. Features interesting notes such as High mountains said to be covered with perpetual snow, Supposed coal fields, and Lookers on appearance of a fine harbour. The map is in good condition with minor foxing and minor edge wear.

The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge was formed in 1826 and published low cost maps with the goal of reaching a large market, while still maintaining high quality and precision.
