I suppose one should be more interested than I happen to feel in a large detailed map of Australia (42 by 28 -- printed in four colors). Personally, I should find it more useful if it showed Australia's relations to the Netherland Indies, the Solomon Islands, New Guinea, the Coral Sea, and New Zealand. But it doesn't. It is just Australia. The border gives population figures; the inside cover contains data on geography, geology, cities, towns, industries, etc.
