Notes

This manuscript map of Australia shows the state of knowledge of the area and the new discoveries at the time of the D'Entrecasteaux voyage. The map shows the route taken by d'Entrecasteaux in 1792 and 1793, drawn in blue ink, and also shows additional pencilling of the route of Baudin's voyage to Tasmania by an unknown third hand. The previously missed coastline of South Australia and Victoria have been correctly drawn in, in pencil, using a cartographic grid and some additional geographical notes and place names are included. Red ink has been used to highlight places recognized by the d'Entrecasteaux expedition. The map was finally published in 1808 but lacks the detail of the manuscript version.

Prime meridian: Paris.
