Notes "Drawn for the Edinburgh Journal of Nat.l and Science vol. 3"
"I discovered two or three errors in the map of "The Friend of Australia" which I have corrected in this. The outline of this map I reduced from one of the Admiralty Charts published in 1822 by Capt. Hurd RN."
"To be sewed into the book at this end." "This bit of paper to be cut off". (Instructions on this mock-up for the Edinburgh Journal.)
Amended copy with holograph notes of the map previously included in Maslen's book 'The Friend of Australia', 1827 and later. Maslen, formerly an officer of the East India Company, provided detailed instructions for surveys and expeditions, including a call for introduction of camels as beasts of burden.
Engraved by C. Hullmandel.
With lengthy hand-written commentary in bottom margin; Maslen calls the north of the continent AUSTRALINDIA, and the south ANGLICANIA; he reserved the term 'native' for all born in this country. "The term Indians, as used in North America, seems most suitable, because, to call people Blacks who are not black, is improper, many being fair, and all being brown. To call them savages is a libel on the quiet tribes".
