Compiled by H.S. Carroll in 1876, this atlas was the first of its kind ever produced in the Colony, and was thoroughly authentic at the date of publication. It shows all boroughs, post towns, villages, hamlets, road boards, roads, railways, rivers, lakes, creeks, mountains, stations and the area of county and station (including the names, occupiers, grazing capabilities and area of each). It also includes the population of each town in the colony, height of mountains, length, rise, and fall of rivers, the quantity of cereals and green crops, hay, wine, &c., produced in the different localities, and all the geographical, geological, and physiological matter of South Australia and the Northern Territory at the time.


Included are 26 colour maps compiled from plans in the Lands Department by permission of the Surveyor General.


Quoted from the publishers, this atlas was to ‘be found eminently useful to the Merchant and Squatter as a Work of Reference, and with the schoolmaster and Man of family as the best means extant of furnishing the rising generation of the Colony with a thorough geographical knowledge of South Australia and the Northern Territory.
