First published in about 1920, this product was originally a large 77cm x 104cm detailed colour map covering most of New South Wales along with seven smaller detailed map inserts of various other places within the state - these have now all been scanned at high quality and put onto this CD. Use the zoom tool to view the map up close.
This map will be of use to local historians interested in New South Wales. Please Note: This map is NOT searchable.
This CD contains high quality scanned images of the whole of the original book, and has been bookmarked for easy navigation. Pages can be browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.

This scan of Pearson's map is excellent, continuing the high standard one has learnt to expect from Archive CD Books. However, the text which accompanied the map in the original publication was not included, and that was disappointing. The historical reference value of the map is much reduced by the absence of the text.
