Description

Rare example of Bertius' map of the South Polar Hemisphere, published in 1616.

The map is a marvelous amalgam of legend and fiction, showing the south polar land mass as including Beach (after Marco Polo) and several other mythical regions. The map has not yet been revised to show the results of Le Maire's circumnavigation.
