Dixson map collection digitisation project

Over the past 18 months the State Library of New South Wales has been digitising a collection of maps donated to the Library by Sir William Dixson in 1952. With the completion of the project an online collection is now available on the State Library website.
The online collection showcases 80 maps from this wonderful collection which reflects Dixson’s interest in early navigation, geography and the European exploration and settlement of the Pacific, in particular Australia.
