This is a wooden framed map of Australasia (including Indonesia and PNG) drawn and engraved by Sidney Hall circa 1860. He was a London engraver who worked from 1817 to 1860. This is a map that is interested for its early naming Australia "New Holland". A large supposed Lake Torrense is shown but little of the interior had been explored at that time.
Unsure of the type of wooden frame.
Measurements are the outer frame.
