The Un-Discovered Islands

An Archipelago of Myths and Mysteries, Phantoms and Fakes

Malachy Tallack

This guide to islands that have never existed examines 24 products of imagination, deception and human error. Some have emerged from myth, others as phantoms, plain mysteries, or fakes. The island of Frisland was claimed as British territory by Elizabeth I but turned out not to exist, and there were fraudulent inventions such as Phelipeaux, in Lake Superior. Illustrator Katie Scott adorns the text with mythical beasts.
