  • (Antarctica) Descriptio Terrae Subaustralis.

    A fine engraving with a fantastic theoretical look at a polar continent. This early depiction shows "Magallanica sive Terra Australis Incognita" practically joined to New Guinea, with Beach Provincia (modern coastal Australia), Psittacorum Regio, and Terra del fuego all joined together in one massive continent. A rich engraving complimented with a sailing ship and nearby sea monster. Tooley No. 12

    Condition is very good. Image size is 4 x 5.5 (inches).
