Arrowsmith's Australian Maps

John Arrowsmith produced the largest scale maps, constructed mostly from official government sources, of the British colonies during the early to mid nineteenth century period.

The website Arrowsmith's Australian Maps is the result of study by Dorothy Prescott from the University of Melbourne, documenting the differences between the maps (1834-1858) published in the 'London Atlas of Universal Geography' by Arrowsmith. During her research, Prescott used maps from Sir George Grey Special Collections to help document these differences.
