  • Issue 81 - Mount buggery to nowhere else: The stories behind Australia's

  • Issue 81 - Mapping colonial Sydney: From a gaol via a nodal city to an
           international centre
    • Abstract: Tonkinson, Alice; Clancy, Robert
      The cartographic record of colonial Sydney illustrates change from an isolated English penal colony of one thousand inhabitants, to an independent international centre of half a million. The objectives of this article are, by review of the cartography of the period, to illustrate: - the evolution from a penal colony (1788-1840) via a 'nodal city' passaging rural product, to a regional centre, but with chaotic disconnect between residential, commercial, and service functions - the switch from a small walking city with a supply network occupying the Cumberland Plain, to an urban/suburban complex absorbing its immediate hinterland as 'railway' suburbs. The maps discussed reflect key milestones in the urban development of Sydney, namely the crossing of the Great Divide and subsequent unlocking of Sydney's hinterland (1813), the tenure of Governor Macquarie (1810-21), the establishment of a City Council (1842), the discovery of gold (1851) and the introduction of steam travel (1855). The second part of this article provides an overview of the development of commercial map publishing in Sydney throughout the colonial period, demonstrating that map production was influenced by the broader economy.

      In October 1616 Dirk Hartog in the ship Eendracht sighted the Australian west coast and landed at Shark Bay. He stayed three days, left an inscribed plate and sailed for the Indies. He almost certainly sighted North West Cape on passage but failed to remark it.

  • Issue 81 - The Australian hydrographic service - charting Australia, the
           continent encircled by sea
    • Abstract: Pietrini, Lewis
      Ensuring safety of life at sea requires the collection and dissemination of hydrographic data. The Australian Hydrographic Service (AHS) collects, manages and disseminates a vast amount of hydrographic information via its published paper charts and Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC) of Australia, its offshore islands and the waters around Papua New Guinea.

  • Issue 81 - '...The investigation of the coast had not been greatly
           extended...': Circumstance and chance on the periphery in the exploration
           of the new south Wales coast, 1795-1840
    • Abstract: Hoskins, Ian
      This paper argues that the European exploration and knowledge of the present-day New South Wales coast in early to mid-colonial times proceeded as a result of circumstances and decisions created in the colony - on the periphery - rather than as a result of strategic direction from London. The need to extend penal settlement and the related flight of convicts gradually built up knowledge that helped to consolidate terrestrial enterprises such grazing, cropping and timber getting. There is little evidence, if any, that exploring this section of coastline was guided by the desire for security or maritime commerce. This case for localism complicates larger discussions about the imperatives underpinning the colonisation of Australia and the coastal exploration that followed, discussions that too often look at the larger picture without consideration of specific coastlines and the circumstances that pertained to them.

  • Issue 81 - Guillaume le Testu's opinion of java la grande
    • Abstract: Eliason, Andrew
      The identity or nature of Java la Grande on the Dieppe maps has long been controversial. Some have held it to be a depiction of Australia (or Australasia) but others have held it to be a cosmographical fiction. A few authors have drawn attention to the commentaries that Guillaume Le Testu inscribed in his manuscript atlas Cosmographie universelle, dated 1555/6, and have offered them as a proof that the land mass is, after all, imaginary. The argument depends on a single sentence in just one of the commentaries. When Le Testu's atlas is examined more broadly, with regard to the information supplied by other commentaries, the contents of Le Testu's charts, and the works of the Dieppe school of cartographers up to his time, it turns out that his opinion of Java la Grande is probably the same as those of his colleagues, that Java la Grande is as real as Tierra del Fuego.

  • Issue 81 - Franciscus Monachus' southern continent, in his own words
    • Abstract: King, Robert J
      ranciscus Monachus (c.1490-1565), a Franciscan monk and noted cosmographer living in Mechelin, Brabant, wrote an undated letter to his patron, Jean de Carondelet, titular Archbishop of Palermo in 1526 or 1527. The letter, a treatise on geography, was published as a booklet in Antwerp under the title of De Orbis Situ ac Descriptione. Its title page was illustrated with a map of the world in two hemispheres, each measuring 65mm 65mm, which were engraved on separate wood blocks. The booklet was written to accompany and explain a globe constructed by Gaspard van de Heyden for Carondelet, which has not survived. The double hemisphere map is a small and rough woodcut and lacks detail. Cartographic historian Rodney Shirley has said of it: "Together with [Johannes] Schoener's globes of 1515 and 1520, this is one of the first renderings of the Terra Australis on a printed map; it is also one of the earliest maps to recognize the rounding of the tip of South America by Magellan".

  • Issue 81 - Mapping a stateless continent
    • Abstract: Manning, John
      Antarctica can be described as a stateless continent; it has never had an indigenous population, nor a permanent colonial occupation that exercised political or economic control. Consequently it has had no clear single ownership or governance, and mapping has come from a number of contributing sources. Since 1958 mapping of the Antarctic continent has benefited from international cooperation and coordination by working groups within the Scientific Committee for Antarctic Research (SCAR) and the nature of mapping has evolved utilising satellite imagery. Australia had an ongoing leadership role in chairing the relevant SCAR working groups from 1961 to 2002.

  • Issue 81 - The terrestrial sphere of "the spheres" tapestries - revisited
    • Abstract: Hewitt, John
      This is the second article on the terrestrial sphere of the Spheres tapestries, a series woven in Brussels for King Joao (John) III of Portugal (born 1502, enthroned 1521, died 1557) and his wife, Catarina (Catherine) of Austria (1507- 1578). The article discusses an alternative hypothesis to that advanced by the author in this journal in 2010. Then it was suggested the tapestries may have been commissioned by a member of Catherine's family and the map supplied by cartographer, Franciscus Monachus. This article explores the hypothesis that the tapestries were commissioned by King John III, woven in Brussels (ca.1528) based on designs developed in Portugal, and made to celebrate the achievements of Portugal under the House of Aviz, particularly during the reign of King Manuel I (1469-1521). It is suggested the terrestrial sphere may be the work of King John's master for making charts, Lopo Homem. It is noted that there is an affinity between the terrestrial sphere and Oronce Fine's world map of 1531, Johannes Sch ner's globe of 1533, and other works. It is asserted that the terrestrial sphere is the only known Portuguese map from the middle decades of the sixteenth century to depict a southern continent. The map appears to contain a Portuguese claim of sovereignty over part of the assumed austral continent, and could be the earliest known map to show the continent extending north of the Tropic of Capricorn, south of modern day Indonesia. The terrestrial sphere will add to the debate about Portuguese discovery of Australia in the sixteenth century. The opportunity has been taken to expand the discussion on the "Earth Under The Protection of Jupiter and Juno" tapestry and to correct errors in the first article.

      The title of this research note alludes to P.H. Franses' papers in Creativity Research Journal 'When Do Painters Make Their Best Work'' (2013) and 'When Did Nobel Prize Laureates in Literature Make Their Best Work'' (2014). The speculative polemic is based on several years of linguistic engagement involving fieldwork in remote island communities in Oceania. I contend that doing linguistics, specifically collecting toponymic (placename) data, is an aesthetic, artistic, and creative commitment as well as a scientific endeavour involving accessing the language awareness of a group of individuals. The creative manifestation of linguistic and toponymic research is twofold: the explicit cartographic representation, where I pose the map as art, and the more subtle interaction and development of friendships within specific communities associated with the research. Both appearances are creatively driven and are a part of accessing how we possess and become aware of language and how such language is expressed in maps.

  • Issue 81 - Marco Polo's java and locach on mercator's world maps of 1538
           and 1569, and globe of 1541
    • Abstract: King, Robert J
      The descriptions of Locach, Java Major and Java Minor by Marco Polo and Ludovico di Varthema were drawn upon by Gerard Mercator in constructing his world maps of 1538 and 1569, and globe of 1541. His depiction of these lands in 1538 was influenced by the 1531 and 1536 world maps of Oronce Fine. Fine's maps also influenced contemporary Breton and Norman cartographers in their depiction of these lands on their series of world maps, 1546 to 1583. The Regio Patalis, a promontory of the Terra Australis on Fine's maps, became Beach on Mercator's 1541 globe, and 1ocach/Beach on his 1569 world map. The Breton, Guillaume Brouscon, also identified this promontory of the Terra Australis as Locach on his world map of 1543, while the Dieppe Norman cartographers identified it with Java la Grande. Dirk Hartog's discovery of Eendracht Land in 1616 was initially incorporated into Mercator's model, and identified with Beach.
