Paper Map. English n/a. 1859. 67 x 54 cms.

Good condition for its age - some tears at edges, foxing in places esp. at right corner and edges, with minor waviness.

A detailed sketch of the Carpentaria where it was stranded at the Ordance Poweder Jetty in Simons Bay - the soundings are in feet below Low Water Spring Tides - from the Cape and Natal News 1858 October - December: "H.M.S. Megare and the screw steamer Prince Arthur are now in Simons Bay, preparing to embark troops for India. The only vessels of war, connected with the naval station, at present here are H.M. St. Hermes and H.M. St. Lynx. Two British ships – the Scotia and Carpentaria – are at present in Simon’s Bay, getting repairs, having put into port in a leaky condition."
