    Craigie's motorist map of New South Wales showing main motoring roads and mileages / compiled, drawn and published by Kenneth Craigie & Co. Sydney : K. Craigie & Co., [1931]

    Map with pencil annotated grid accompanies a ledger of Aboriginal Placenames across New South Wales providing co-ordinates for places identified.

    Compiler/Author: The (Canon) J. Carlos W. Stretch
    Title: Toponomy: Place Names of New South Wales, Their Origin, Meaning and Locality

    The manuscript is in the form of an alphabetical ledger of 508 leaves with inserts including a map that contains references to all the place names in the work, and their physical locations.

    This work represents the culmination of the Canon Carlos Stretch’s voluminous Aboriginal language and placename researches that we also hold in manuscript form from another donor, Mrs Helen Pankhurst. The Ledger was donated by A.S. Allably of Ballina in November 2009.
