Galapagos Admiralty map by Fitzroy Beagle Featured Maps Print

Galapagos Admiralty map by Fitzroy Beagle

Admiralty map of Galapagos 1845 resulting from Captain Robert Fitzroy's Beagle charts, overlain with a portion of a letter written by Fitzroy. Robert Fitzroy (b. 5 July 1805- d. 30 April 1865) was famous as the captain of HMS Beagle who, requiring a Gentleman's companion to avert the risk of depression and suicide, took the young Charles Darwin on his voyage. Darwin respected the captain while at the same time fearing Fitzroy would always be his own worst enemy. After his trip Darwin referred to the Galapagos (and also South American megafauna fossils) as being the origin of all his views. Fitzroy is also remembered for his contributions to meteorology (he pioneered weather forecasting) and as a Governor of New Zealand from 1843-1845. Fitzroy committed suicide at 59, but the charts he produced continued to be used up to the second World War

Auckland's advance from its battalion headquarters Featured Maps Print

Auckland's advance from its battalion headquarters

This drawing relates to an incident on the 14th/15th September 1916 and is described in a book entitled 'A Saga of the Sword' by Austin F. Britten, published by Arrowsmith, London 1928. The chapter, entitled 'The End of an Epoch', contains the following map reference : S11 b4.9. This is right in the middle of the area of the 2nd Battalion Auckland Regiment which was in No-Man's Land, just a shade short by 50 yards or so of the German Front Line in Coffee Lane. And, no doubt, Matania is attempting to portray an incident in the initial phase of the Auckland's advance from its battalion headquarters, slightly on the right of the fork (La Forche) which is where the New Zealand memorial now stands. It would also appear that four tanks were allocated to the New Zealand Division and all four passed this way towards the fork before spreading out. They were from D Company and were numbered D8, D10, D11 and D12. The actual image was never used in the book (which in the end did not have any illustrations) but no doubt Matania was asked by Austin Britten to produce this incident at the above map reference. The name of the book was written on the back of the picture. Fortunino Matania, Ri (1881-1963). One of the most accomplished realistic illustrators and artists of his time, his wartime work was immensely popular and appeared in nearly every major news magazine, Allied, Neutral and Central Powers alike. Date: 1916
