Description


This is a scarce and beautiful large format Japanese aviation chart of map of northeast Australia issued by the Japan Army General Staff dating to 1942. This World War II era map covers the northeastern part of Australia from the Timor Sea and the Daly River east to Cape Upstart and southward from the Gulf of Carpentaria. It includes the northern parts of Queensland and the Northern Territory. The map is highly detailed and notes important cities, towns, rivers, roads, shipping lines and other important topographical features. While Allied World War II maps of this region are fairly common it is extremely rare to come across their Japanese counterparts. All text is in Japanese.
