Historical maps relevant to the mapping of Australia from 1521 onwards to 1814 by a great variety of European mapmakers. Most of these maps are digitally available from the National Library, Canberra.  The final maps in this series are based on the map (s) by Nicholas Vallard (“Atlas”, 1547), based on likely Portuguese visits to the East Coast of Australia in 1521/22 (by Mendonca). They have been discussed in  detail by Peter Trickett in a very convincing book entitled “Beyond Capricorn”, 2007 published by East Street Publications, Adelaide. Trickett was highly critical that the Vallard maps were not displayed at the historic exhibition of old maps in Canberra in 2013/2014. He demonstrated personally in front of the Library protesting against their exclusion.
