Notes

The Thevenot work was printed in sections and parts and issued at different periods, 1663, 1666, 1672, 1683. Each time the sections were published matter within the earlier parts was revised so that the map of Australia went through a number of revisions with at least four versions being identified. The arrangement and collation of copies vary. Made up of works separately paged, several of which have special title-pages.

Library's copy acquired at the Davidson Collection auction, 7 March 2005; has map sewn upside down at p. 52 [i.e., 56].
