Description

About the Book

The Phantom Atlas is an atlas of the world not as it ever existed, but as it wasthought to be. These marvellous and mysterious phantoms - non-existentislands, invented mountain ranges, mythical civilisations and other fictitiousgeography - were all at various times presented as facts on maps and atlases.This book is a collection of striking antique maps that display the mosterroneous cartography, with each illustration accompanied by the story behindit.Exploration, map-making and mythology are all brought together to create acolourful tapestry of monsters, heroes and volcanoes; swindlers, mirages andmurderers. Sometimes the stories are almost impossible to believe, and re-markably, some of the errors were still on display in maps published in the 21stcentury. Throughout much of the 19th century more than 40 different map-makers included the Mountains of Kong, a huge range of peaks stretchingacross the entire continent of Africa, in their maps - but it was only in 1889when Louis Gustave Binger revealed the whole thing to be a fake. For centu-ries, explorers who headed to Patagonia returned with tales of the giants theyhad met who lived there, some nine feet tall. Then there was Gregor MacGreg-or, a Scottish explorer who returned to London to sell shares in a land he haddiscovered in South America. He had been appointed the Cazique of Poyais,and bestowed with many honours by the local king of this unspoiled paradise.Now he was offering others the chance to join him and make their fortunethere, too - once they had paid him a bargain fee for their passage...The Phantom Atlas is a beautifully produced volume, packed with stunningmaps and drawings of places and people that never existed. The remarkablestories behind them all are brilliantly told by Edward Brooke-Hitching in abook that will appeal to cartophiles everywhere.
