Mineralogy. [MAP - AUSTRALIA - NEW SOUTH WALES]. TAYLOR, J. Mineral map and general statistics of New South Wales, Australia. [title on map: Sketch map of New South Wales showing the localities of the principal minerals, 1876].Sydney, Thomas Richards, 1876.
8vo. With a folding chromolithographed map by G.W. Sharp after J. Taylor (37.5 x 44.4 cm). Original publisher's printed lavender wrappers, with a woodengraved view of the Sydney University on the back. Edges of wrappers faded with a tiny tear. A very good copy of this mineral map.
Condition
First edition of a mineralogical map, showing the entire province of New South Wales, together with an index to the colours, a list of proclaimed gold fields and with a small depiction of Australia with the province highlighted in the lower left corner. There are no separate text pages, instead the letterpress explanatory text is printed on the inside of the front wrapper (general chapter about the province) and in 7 sections on the back of the folding map. Six of these sections list all kinds of relevant data collected in 1874 and 1875, such as population, trade per head of the population, figures of international trade, length of railways, bank-capital, amount of live stock and traded wool and leather, and the output of the coal, tin, gold and copper fields. The final section advertises the province for settlers in a series of 11 "advantages of new South Wales as a home for the emigrant", such as ready employment, cheap cost of living, 200 million acres of public lands, good soil and climate, great mineral resources, Sydney and its harbour, good infrastructure, etc. "All this may be enjoyed among a people whose whole social lise is so like Home that it is scarcely possible for the emigrant to feel like 'a stranger in a strange land'" (advantage 10). According to Ferguson, the map was issued in yellow, slate or lavender paper wrappers.
