This year the University Library has purchased many rare maps to add to its already considerable collection of rare cartographic material. These new acquisitions are mainly from the 18th and 19th centuries, with a focus on Australian material. In addition, the Library also purchased several complementary early world-maps.

For one day only, approximately fifty of these recently acquired maps will be on display in the closed area of the Map Collection.

Fourth floor, Eastern Resource Centre, Friday 5 December 2014, 10.00am–4.00pm
