Created by John Arrowsmith, this map of South Australia in 1838, is an engraving with period outline colour.
John Arrowsmith's greatest contributions to cartography were primarily in his maps of Australia and of South Africa. This interesting chart of the southern coast from Discovery Bay to Fowler Bay. There are 4 inset charts: the Gulf of St Vincent; The City of Adelaide with the Acre Allotments; Nepean Bay and Kingscote Harbour; and Encounter Bay. The chart includes depth soundings for the entire stretch of coast and would have been an immense help to navigators.
