Entrance of Port Lincoln, taken from behind Memory Cove, from Flinders' Voyage
London:: G. & W. Nicol,. 1814.. First edition. View on the South Australian coast from Matthew Flinders' "A Voyage to Terra Australis". The foreground shows an aboriginal hut next to a gum tree (which looks suspiciously lush for a gum) with the hills rolling out to the South Australian coast at Port Lincoln in the background. Copper engraved print, image size 23 x 16 cm on paper 29.2 x 22.5 cm, excellent condition. Flinders was the first to circumnavigate Australia and he is credited as giving Australia its name. His narrative has become scarce and the prints are rarely seen separately.
