Terra Antarctica : Du Val

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive and vivid depiction of the confusion existing regarding the great southern landmass or Terra Australis. On this miniature map a vast block of land is shown from Tierra del Fuego around the globe but fading into an uncertain delineation of coastlines for New Zealand and Australia. Du Val, the Paris map publisher, produced folio and miniature atlases, in which this map would have appeared. However German publishers copied the work and this map may be from one of those slightly later editions.
