Tasmania 1859 – James Sprent
This beautiful map depicts all of Tasmania in 1859, including Flinders and King Island, the latter in relation to mainland Australia.
The Surveyor General, James Sprent dedicated the Map to Sir Henry Edward Fox Young, being the Governor in Chief and the Honourable Francis Smith, Attorney General and Premier. This map could be considered to be topographic, as it depicts hill relief and watercourses, major arterial routes and shows the break-up of Tasmania into the separate Land Districts.
Colours can vary slightly.
