A large sea chart of the Southern Indian Ocean, with parts of southern Africa (with Madagascar) and Western Australia (still with the Dutch names), south to Enderby Land, Kemp Land Sabrina Coast, all on Antarctica. Near the centre of the chart are the Kerguelen Islands. Insets show details of the various islands.
Enderby Land was named by the whaling brig Tula in 1831, after Enderby Brothers of London, the ship's owners; Kemp land was sighted by Peter Kemp aboard the brig Magnet in 1833; and Sabrina coast was named by John Balleny in 1839, after a Enderby Brothers cutter lost in this sealing expedition.
