Title : [ Three portraits of inhabitants of Van Diemen's Land ]..

Description :Aquatint depicting inhabitants of Van Diemen's Land, engraved by Castelli. Plate N° 59. Van Diemen's Land was the original name used by Europeans for the island of Tasmania, now part of Australia. The Dutch explorer Abel Tasman was the first European to explore Tasmania. He named the island Anthoonij van Diemenslandt in honor of Anthony van Diemen, Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies who had sent Tasman on his voyage of discovery in 1642. Anthony Trollope used the term Vandemonian. They are (the Vandemonians) united in their declaration that the cessation of the coming of convicts has been their ruin. Eventually, in order to remove the unsavoury connotations with crime associated with its name (and its homophonic connection to "demon"), in 1856 Van Diemen's Land was renamed Tasmania in honor of Abel Tasman. The last penal settlement in Tasmania at Port Arthur finally closed in 1877.
From Giulio Ferrario's work Le Costume Ancien et Moderne ou Histoire du gouvernement, de la milice, de la religion, des arts, sciences et usages de tous les peuples anciens et modernes d'après les monuments de l'antiquité et accompagné de dessins analogues au au sujet par le Docteur Jules Ferrario. Asie IV.me Vol".
Published in Milan by the author between 1816 and 1827.
This aquatint engraved plate was color printed on fine move paper with additional hand-coloring.
