Description

Athanasius Kircher was a celebrated Jesuit Scholar and one of the first compilers of the semi-scientific knowledge about the physical features of the earth. This world map appeared in his Mundus Subterraeneus . . . . The work described the known currents of the ocean, volcanos, chasm, subterranean currents, etc. Shows a marvelous NW passage, massive Terra Australis, Straits of Magellan and over 20 volcanoes throughout the World. A fascinating map. Shirley 436.
