This is a very nice map of Australia's New South Wales centered on Sydney.  The other populated area, near Perth on the west coast is in the inset titled Swan River Settlement.  Australia is shown as an inset, with much of the interior shown unexplored.   Otherwise, plenty of detail is offered as to topography, rivers, lakes, settlements, etc.  Also, there are interesting notations such as "impassable range of Rocky Ms." and "inundated country covered with reeds." The counties are color-coded.  From A New General Atlas of the World.  Teesdale maps are increasingly scarce.
