Sketch Map of New South Wales Showing the Localities of the Principal Minerals

Colour printed lithograph. Compiled and drawn by J. Taylor, engraved by G.W. Sharp. Published by Thomas Richards, Government Printer, Sydney. 1876.

Folding map contained in pink covers bearing the title "Mineral Map and General Statistics of New South Wales Australia", with a wood engraving of The Sydney University on back cover.

Dimensions of unfolded map: 15 1/2" x 18".

The map itself is in excellent condition, fresh and bright throughout, with just minor losses to the paper along the edge attached to the covers. External covers are age stained, as expected, with minor chips to folding spine. Archival tape repairs to inner spine.

An extremely attractive map, colour coded to denote gold, copper, silver, iron, tin, coal, kerosine shale and diamonds and other gems. The coastline is depicted in stirations of two shades of blue.
