Title : Hollandia Nova detecta 1644 Terre Australe decouuerte l'an 1644..
Map maker : THEVENOT,M..
Date : Paris, Langlois, 1663.
Size : 15.0 x 23.6 inches. / 38.0 x 60.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Thevenot's map of Australia is the first published large-scale map of Australia and the first French map to record Tasman's 1642-42 and 1644 discoveries in both Australia and New Zealand. The only other map of Australia to precede Thevenot's map is the little known miniature map by Claes Visscher 'T'Landt van Eendracht' published in his 1649 'Tabularum Geographarum..' (known only in one copy).
Thevenot's map therefore holds a significant place in not only the charting of Tasman 's voyages, but also in the mapping of the Australian continent as a whole. It records a shape of Australia that would remain unchanged until the grand exploits of Captain Cook some one hundred and ten years later.
Latitude indicated by vertical scale in centre of map. 3rd state of a map of Australia, incomplete south and E. Coast, part of Tasmanian coastline. New Zealand and New Guinea incomplete. Error in recording of latitude corrected and rhumb lines are now showing.
Collector's item!

Condition : In very good condition. Left hand margin cut into platemark, as usual. A tiny marginal corner in upper right re-inforced.


ID: 21969
