London: James Wyld, Charing Cross East, 1847. London, James Wyld, Charing Cross East, [circa 1847-48]. 600 x 953 mm (printed surface), partially hand-coloured in outline, cut into 24 panels and mounted on linen (as issued), folding to a compact 210 x 125 mm. Mild signs of use and age; some light (relevant) pencilling, mainly to the unexplored areas of South Australia; entire perimeter of the map neatly reinforced with a thin strip of cloth; paper on the two cloth panels exposed when the map is folded is not original, but mounted on one of the inside cloth panels is the publisher's printed list of new maps (possibly removed from the original slipcase, now no longer present); a very good copy, loosely inserted in a functional ribbon-tied watered cloth portfolio with a typewritten title-label. Possibly Tooley 1417 ('Revised, Corner Basin, Port Albert and Albert Town &c inserted'; these are near Wilson's Promontory). A large and detailed map, with insets featuring Adelaide, Sydney, and Van Diemens [sic] Land, and a very large and detailed inset of the settled portions of south-western Western Australia. First Edition. Very Good.
