British Admirality. C. Catastrophe to the Great Australian
Bight. Chart No. 1061, 1875-1913.
Chart no 1061 (1875-1913) is a superseded British Admirality chart, including
navigation details with compass rose and detailed soundings for
various ports, that has been closely hand annotated with the separate
tracks of Matthew Flinders in the Investigator in 1802, Nicolas
Baudin in Le Geographe in 1802, and Louis de Freycinet in
the Casuarina in 1803. Note the number of French place names
along this stretch of coast which acknowledge the French survey
work in this areas subsequent to Flinders initial charting.
