Un unrecorded later edition of the S.D.U.K. Family atlas, with 80 plus one extra map. Most maps are single sheet but several are double page maps. Printed on heavy paper and finished with delicate original wash colour.

The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, or SDUK, was established in 1826 to provide scientific and other information to the British middle and working classes. Many of its works were beyond the means of the working classes.
The SDUK published several editions of its atlas. Dates I have seen quoted are 1829-1832, 1840, 1844, and 1846. In 1848 the SDUK ceased to be active, but works which it had commissioned continued to be published.

The map of Australia 400 x 688mm, showing the Australian states very similar to how they are today and a key to 68 counties in NSW. 38 in QLD, 24 in VIC, 14 in SA, and 26 in WA. Inset maps of both Tasmania and the world.

The complete title reading : The Family Atlas Containing Eighty maps Constructed by Eminent Geographers and Engraved on Steel under the Superintendence of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, Including the Geological map of England and Wales by Sir I.Murchison, F.R.S. the Star Maps by Sir John Lubbock, Bart. And the Plans of London and Paris..., London Edward Stanford, 1874."
