1863 Wyld Map of New ZealandAntique Print Gallery
James Wyld was a major cartographer of the 19th Century. He died in 1887. The copper plate from which this map was printed was probably an updated version of his 1843 map as the insets are the same. This edition still shows the West Coast of the South Island as part of the Province of Canterbury. There are insets of the Hokianga, Manakau, Victoria(Bay of Islands), Port Nicholson, Pelorus River, Stewart Island and Dusky Bay. The original map was hand colured, folded and issued in a slipcase labelled "James Wyld, Geographer to Her Majesty" The original for this reproduction came from Dr. P.B. Maling's collection of folded emigration maps.
