Description de la Terre Soubs.Australe. - Antique Map from 1616

Genuine antique
dated:

1616

Description:

Excellent example of this rare map, uncoloured as issued. The first map focusing on the South Pole. Northern Australian coast is shown connected to New Guinea and as part of the larger southern landmass of Magallanica – Terra Australis Incognita. A peninsula west of New Guinea, in the position of northern Australia, is labelled Beach, continuing the error originally included in Fine’s 1532 world map which mistakenly corrupted Marco Polo’s false kingdom of Lochac to Boeach or Beach.
