Introduction by N. G. Butlin and J. N. Jennings. Just why Frederick Montague Rothery drew the Atlas of Bundaleer Plains and Tatala is uncertain. But he has left a record of a huge nineteenth-century Queensland pastoral holding that is charming, possibly unique, and of real interest and value. Each of the maps is an attractive watercolour, its delicate brushwork and fine lettering showing in meticulous detail the area depicted: its soil, vegetation, buildings, fences and dams. Rothery's mapmaking is a fascinating blend of the medieval and the modern cartographer's art: in part perspective drawing, in part planimetrically exact. The record Rothery has left, apart from its intrinsic artistic merit, is also valuable as evidence of pastoral and economic development in the nineteenth century; in addition modern scientists have been able to identify in the Atlas a prior-stream course of practical use for present-day developments such as the locating of underground water and of gravel for roadmaking. This book should find a ready audience not only among economic historians, geographers, and cartographers but also among all those attracted by unusual Australiana Covers rubbed. 58 pages.
