Fig. 7: Map of the Roads to all Gold Mones in Victoria. Lithographed by J. B. Philip [1853]. This map is a redrafted copy, pirated from Frederick Proeschel's - Pocket Map of the Roads to all the Mines in Victoria, issued earlier in 1853. It shows routes and distances between mines, towns and staging posts, and would have been a valuable guide to those setting out for the goldfields [see Thomas Darragh, 'Frederick Proeschel, Colonial Map Maker', Bibliographical Society of Australia and New Zealand Bulletin, vol. 15, nos 3 & 4, 1991].
