Interesting and nearly completely conjectural map of the South Pole from Davide Kohler's Descriptio Orbis Antiqui…published by Weigel in 1720. The map shows the prevailing belief in a massive southern hemisphere, which extended to just south of the Straits of Magellan and Le Maire, both of which are shown on the map. An intersting retrospective projection.
