Tasmania or Van Diemens Land by M. Flinders 1798-9. South Coast, Sheet VI
London:: British Admiralty Hydrographical Office,. 1860.. Maps. Map of Tasmania based on Matthew Flinder's chart. In 1798, Flinders and George Bass set out in the 'Norfolk' to explore the extent of the strait between the mainland and Van Diemen's Land [Tasmania]. By circumnavigating Van Diemen's Land, Flinders proved that it was a separate island. This Admiralty chart of Tasmania includes Hunter, Three Hummock Island and most of Barren Island, with insets of Sullivan Cove (Hobart Town) by Mr. I Welsh and an untitled inset of the approaches to Hobart, including depth soundings.
