A very interesting and finely engraved 19th century map of New Zealand -- with insets of Western Australia and Tasmania / Van Diemen's Land -- which was engraved by W. Hughes and published in Black's General Atlas: A series of Fifty-Four Maps from the Latest and Most Authentic Sources (Edinburgh: A. & C. Black,1844-1850). This is amongst the earliest detailed maps of New Zealand and still shows it as largely unexplored.
