Details

Tales of the wonders of Braesil, off the west coast of Ireland, by sixth-century monks; the fabled continent of Atlantis, mapped by Athanasius Kircher in 1644; or Crocker Land, the ‘last great geographical enigma of the North’, supposedly sighted by Donald Baxter Macmillan in 1914 … For centuries seafarers have believed in islands that never existed. Dirk Liesemer tells the story of 30 such ‘phantoms’, along with maps based on those of cartographers from Angelino Dulcert (fl.1325) to Google Earth.
