This old, full colour and wonderful map shows Australia and New Zealand as they were in 1872. It was engraved by G.H. Swanston and published by A. Fullarton & Co.
There are close-up inset maps of Victoria and New South Wales, showing how these two colonies were already extensively developed by the 1870s.
This map looks great at all sizes: 12x16 inches (31x41cm), 18x24 inches (45.5x61cm) and 24x30 inches (61x76cm), but it looks even better when printed large.
I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 70 inches (180cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 20x16 inch (50x40cm) version of this map.
Please note, the unframed 24x30 inch map has white edges around the map. These edges can help you with framing, or if you don’t need them, they are very easy to snip off with scissors. All other maps, including the framed maps, look exactly like the listing images.
If you’re looking for something slightly different, another option would be this amazing map of the same area by John Pinkerton in 1813, when the land was a lot less developed.
In addition to Australia and New Zealand, you can also see a number of islands surrounding the mainland including New Caledonia, New Hebrides, Solomon Islands and Tasmania. The southern edge of Papua New Guinea can be seen at the top of the map, and by 1872 many of the major towns and cities of Australia and New Zealand have been founded and can be seen on this map.
This would make a wonderful birthday, Christmas, work leaving or housewarming gift for someone from New Zealand or Australia or perhaps somebody who has Oceania in their heart.
This map is available as a giclée print on acid free archival matte paper, or you can buy it framed. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that suits most aesthetics. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. My frames are glazed with super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite), which is significantly less reflective than glass, safer, and will always arrive in perfect condition.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
