[One of the most desirable maps of Australia]
CASSINI, Giovanni Maria.
La Nuova Olanda e la Nuova Guinea. Rome, 1798. Coloured. 365 x 490mm.
Australia and New Guinea, from the 'Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale'. The emphasis of the map is the charting of Captain Cook down the east coast: most of the marked features are those named by Cook and his crew betwen the Torres Strait and Tasmania, which is shown as part of the mainland. The title is within a decorative title cartouche with two aboriginies, one of whom strangely carries a bow.
