Description


This is a 1951 Jacques Liozu pictorial map of Australia, the East Indies, and Oceania. Stretching from Borneo and Java to Hawaii and from Hawaii and the Philippines to New Zealand, numerous island groups, are depicted and labeled as well, including the Marianas, Carolinas, Marshalls, Gilberts, Fiji, Solomons, and New Hebrides. Vignettes lend an air of levity to this charming piece. Among these are a kangaroo boxes with an Aussie and wins, while another chases a tourist. Two aborigines are illustrated in Australia, one of which just is drawn getting hit in the head with his own boomerang. Other vignettes include a starving shipwrecked man adrift on a raft encircled by sharks and islanders living in the Hawaiian Islands. The Society Islands are marked by a 'society gentleman' fishing from a rowboat wearing a coat with tails, eyeglasses, and a bowler hat. The whole is surrounded by a colorful border that features the flags of Australia and New Zealand, as well as all the colonial powers still holding possessions in the region.
