NEW SOUTH WALES
Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, London. 1844. - Steel engraving. Original outline colour. Size: 33 x 39.5 cm. (13 x 15½ inches) Good condition. Some slight foxing to the top of the map, very slightly affecting the image. Benevolent societies with the intention to disseminate knowledge were a distinguishing feature of the Victorian age. SDUK was founded in 1827 by John, Earl Russell and Henry Brougham, later Lord Chancellor of England. The Society published books that were deemed to be of high educational worth but with an affordable price. These fine steel engravings have original hand colouring and are often embellished with vignettes and comparisons of the height of the principal buildings of the city. An attractive map showing New South Wales with an inset map of Sydney.
