This is an authentic antique map of Australia and the islands of the Pacific Ocean by Adrien Hubert Brue. This map is dated 1820 and was published in Paris, France.

This striking map exhibits fine old coloring over dark impressions. Australia is labeled Nouvelle Hollande and is depicted with a nearly empty interior. The islands of Borneo, New Guinea, and New Zeeland display a similar lack of inland information. Where this map excels is in its extensive amount of information with regard to coastal cities and ports as well as the numerous small islands, atolls, and reefs mariners must be cognizant of when travelling these waters. Portions of Asia and North America (labeled Mexique) fill the top corners and the Hawaiian Islands are shown as “Iles Sandwich.” The map includes the well embossed stamp of Adrien Brue.

Condition: Map is in A+ condition, with lovely original coloring, full margins, and a nice heavy impression.
Technique: Price in US$ 350.- In case of difference between prices in US$ and Euro the US$ price prevails.
