  • Issue 79 - A Pacific prospectus: The origins and identities of the islands
           depicted in the South Sea on the Dieppe maps
    • Abstract: Eliason, Andrew
      The three groups of islands depicted in the south-west Pacific Ocean on the mid-sixteenth century Dieppe portolan charts have their origins in accounts of Magellan's discoveries of two islands in the South Pacific in 1521. Their origins are indicated mainly by their locations: the location of one group is derived from the account of Maximilianus Transylvanus, which was published at Cologne in 1523; the locations of the two other groups are derived from the accounts of eye-witnesses such as Magellan's personal companion Antonio Pigafetta. However, their origins are disguised on the Dieppe charts by the substitution of all but one of the Magellanic names and by their depiction not as small solitary islands but as large island groups. The depiction of the island groups in the south-west Pacific on the Dieppe maps represents wishful thinking rather than authentic information.

  • Issue 79 - Towards the identification of the terrestrial globe carried on
           the 'Heemskerck' by Abel Tasman in 1642-43
    • Abstract: Hooker, Brian N
      The purpose of this article is to review theories on the identity of the terrestrial globe carried on the Heemskerck during Abel Tasman's voyage of discovery in 1642-43. During the voyage, Tasman discovered parts of Tasmania, part of New Zealand's west coast, and the islands north and northwest of New Zealand. The globe was a vital item in the navigational equipment available to Tasman and his officers.

  • Issue 79 - Jean Mallard's world map (ca.1538-39)
    • Abstract: Hewitt, John
      This article discusses a world map in two hemispheres (ca.1538-39) by Frenchman Jean Mallard, whose stated aim was to draw a world map showing the results of French voyages. The outcome may be the earliest to show an imagined southern continent with a promontory extending north of the Tropic of Capricorn, south of modern day Indonesia. The promontory is named 'La Gatigare.' The map has been described as a prototype of the Dieppe school charts, and La Gatigare as a typical outline of Java-la-Grande. The argument presented is that there are material differences between Mallard's map and the Dieppe charts leading to the conclusion La Gatigare is not an early example of Java-la-Grande. It is suggested that Mallard's map should be looked upon not as a part of, but as a forerunner to, the Dieppe school of cartographers. The article also discusses two maps from the 1590s, of Portuguese origin, with similar promontories of the assumed southern continent extending north towards the Indonesian islands.

  • Issue 79 - Identifying the origins of major Mitchell's quotations,
           references and footnotes in his "three expeditions into the interior of
           Eastern Australia..."
    • Abstract: Eccleston, Gregory C
      Thomas Mitchell's famous book Three Expeditions into the Interior of Eastern Australia published in two volumes in 1838, with a second edition in 1839, contained 200 pithy quotations, references and footnotes, reflecting the writing style of the time. Identifying the origin of a number of these was a challenge, undertaken in the days before search engines became ubiquitous. Even now, some of the more obscure quotations have been difficult to identify. This short paper looks at seventeen interesting items.

    • Abstract: Liebl, Vernie
      The lack of good maps was an increasing worry. The Defense Mapping Agency could provide all US forces with maps of almost anywhere on the planet, however, what they could not do was ensure that each and every map, especially of areas obscure, remote or visited infrequently by US forces, was up-to-date and accurate.

  • Issue 80 - Heart-shaped worlds: Cordiform maps in the context of early
           modern Europe
    • Abstract: Watson, Ruth
      Long fascinating to those who study cartography, the cordiform maps (from the Latin for heart, cor) are known to few outside that small group. The cordiform projection has been considered something of an anomaly, sitting uncomfortably with the discoveries and discourses of the New World or the genesis of modern cartography. This paper asks why the shape of a heart was chosen for imaging the world. To answer this requires exploring meanings for the heart image outside of its use in cartography. This approach sees the map not as a fixed sign, judged by its geographic content alone, but a complex image under pressure from wider expectations upon the mapmakers and their audiences. In the sixteenth century, meanings were attributed to the heart that we no longer subscribe to today, including learning and memory, leadership and wisdom. A second aim is to establish that the maps' shape - the heart - was intimately entangled with aspirations about the New World. Ultimately, these unusual maps can illuminate the mindset of those in Europe aspiring to a new vision of human affairs, suggesting that the early modern cartographic enterprise was not as homogenous as is often considered. This paper introduces audiences to the maps as well as key issues that have hindered their interpretation. It will show that they, perhaps more than any other maps of their time, are critical for revealing potentially conflicting and controversial aspirations for the New World.

  • Issue 80 - Australia's convict explorers and landscape artists
    • Abstract: Urban, Frank
      When I emigrated from Rhodesia to Australia in 1970 few people acknowledged their convict antecedents. Today many people actively search for convict ancestors. In forty years the devils have turned into angels, so I wondered whether convicts related to my discipline of mapmaking and surveying had been falsely accused of stealing sixpence or were mass murderers! Attitudes have changed dramatically since 1820 when the Reverend Samuel Marsden described Catholic immigrants as "the most wild, ignorant and savage race ... men who have been familiar with robberies, murders and every horrible crime since their infancy...they are very dangerous members of society, treacherous and fond of riot..." (Fitzsimons 2012). I decided to examine the stories of nine convicts who became surveyors or landscape artists.

  • Issue 80 - Map librarian finds 1966 crash site
    • Abstract: Jones, Meg
      Fifty years ago this November, a B-52 Stratofortress bomber crashed into a hill in Wisconsin's Northwoods, killing all nine people on board. Residents and hunters gathering for the gun-deer opener the next morning heard and felt the low rumble and crash. A forest fire watcher named Roger Langham, whose farm was just west of the site, climbed a lookout tower to help searchers locate the wreckage.

  • Issue 80 - Charting the sealing islands of the Southern Ocean
    • Abstract: Pearson, Michael
      Sealing has been an industry in the North Atlantic and Arctic seas since at least 1593. Initially the profits from sealing were far less than those gained from whaling, and the sealing industry remained a minor, if locally important, activity for many communities. Sealing became better established as a global industry from the late 18th century onwards as it expanded into the South Atlantic and the Southern Ocean, and the paper focuses on the relationship between explorers' reports of new discoveries and the role of sealers in the official and unofficial charting of the islands of the southern oceans and in the independent search for new sealing grounds.

  • Issue 80 - George Hore's gallipoli experience: A light horseman's record
           of the gallipoli campaign - the 'ANZAC panorama' and its background
    • Abstract: Braga, Stuart
      Many of those who served in the ill-fated Gallipoli campaign in 1915 sought to record their experiences, usually in letters and diaries, occasionally in graphic form, though few had the skills or materials to do this. Leslie Fraser Standish Hore, known as George, one of the few surviving officers of the 8th Light Horse Regiment, whose Gallipoli experience culminated in the disaster of the attack at The Nek on 7 August, left a memorable record of that experience in three forms: firstly, in a series of observant coloured sketches; secondly in a letter to his wife which gave an account of the harrowing event; and thirdly and perhaps most significantly, he produced what he called the 'Anzac Panorama'. Informed by his pictures and by six smaller panoramas he had sketched during the campaign, it was completed from memory after the Gallipoli campaign was over. Hore then had it printed in Cairo, probably early in 1916. The panorama gives an interesting representation of Australian positions on 7 August, the day of the assault on Turkish positions at The Nek by the 8th and 10th Australian Light Horse Regiments. This article outlines Hore's background, and goes on to discuss all three aspects of his Gallipoli experience: his sketches, his account of the attack, in which he was wounded, and finally the 'Anzac Panorama', which brought together all that had gone before. While it is but one part of a considerable corpus of sketching and painting, he clearly intended it to be the most significant part. He was well fitted to achieve this.

  • Issue 76 - Preliminary spatial analysis of Hendra disease outbreaks in
           South East Queensland
    • Abstract: Burnham, Jahnavi; Chong, Albert K; Liu, Xiaoye; Moore, Antoni
      Hendra Virus was first reported in the suburb of Hendra, Brisbane in 1994. It has proven to be fatal to both humans and horses, with the first outbreak resulting in the death of 13 horses and a trainer. Since then, there have been several other outbreaks reported across Queensland, from Cairns to the New South Wales border at Murwillumbah. Due to the frequent incidents of the virus outbreak, the Queensland Government's Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) stated that there is a pressing need for current research on the spatial and temporal occurrences of the virus infections (DAFF 2012). This paper presents an overview of the research, and the preliminary results of the relationship between the Hendra disease outbreaks and the roosting sites of flying-foxes in the south-east Queensland. The results show a strong relationship (92% of the incidents) between temporary and seasonal roosting sites (rather than the permanent continuous roosting sites) and the outbreak locations. This finding suggests the need for detailed cluster analysis and regression models to identify the risk factors for the spread of the disease.

    • Abstract: Heawood, Edward
      Simple as it may seem when once thought out, the common method of indexing maps by a conventional system of co-ordinates defining the positions of places upon them did not, it seems, suggest itself to geographers until some time after the printing of maps had come into vogue. It may therefore be worth while to put on record an early, possibly the earliest, instance of its adoption - in the mid-sixteenth century - particularly as its author was a man to whose concern with geography little attention has yet been paid.

    • Abstract: Kenyon, Christine
      In 1836 Major Thomas Mitchell explored the Murray River upstream of its confluence with the Darling River. In 1837 and 1838 Edward Eyre, Joseph Hawdon with Charles Bonney, and then Captain Charles Sturt pioneered the stock route to Adelaide, along the Murray River. The chart of the Murray River presented below is held with Charles Sturt's papers at the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford. This chart is an important historical document that provides valuable information about the country and vegetation along the Murray River valley at the time Europeans arrived in the region. It is possible this chart was loaned to Sturt for his 1838 journey and originated from a previous exploration of the region.

  • Issue 76 - Looking backwards, looking forwards: Reflections on the early

    • Abstract: Prescott, Dorothy
      In April 1973 map librarians came face to face for the first time ever to discuss their profession, education, practices, collections and administration. From this first meeting the Australian Map Curators' Circle was established, a long needed forum for those with like problems to share their experiences and to learn from one other. Since that first meeting the Society has met yearly, in different cities Australia wide, providing new experiences on each occasion for map librarians to get to know each other, to visit mapping organizations and see maps being created, to encounter the retail map traders and to embrace map collectors. This widening of participants' experiences led to the first change of name to the Australian Map Circle and brought new members with different interests in maps. Ultimately it made sense for Australia and New Zealand to combine their separate societies as one society, now known as the Australian and New Zealand Map Society.

      The mapping of New Zealand's fourteen national parks has evolved in parallel with the topographic mapping of the country but has been influenced by the political constraints and directions of the governments of each period. Initially, with little accurate information to work with, the maps were sketchy but purposeful. Innovation in the presentation of the landform is evident in some cases and provides insights into the technologies and conventions of the times.

  • Issue 76 - Participatory mapping for disaster risk reduction: A review
    • Abstract: Gaillard, JC; Hore, Katherine; Cadag, Jake Rom D
      In theory, disaster risk reduction (DRR) must be inclusive of a large array of stakeholders in order to integrate actions from the bottom up and the top down and address both the root causes of people's vulnerability and enhance their intrinsic capacities to face natural and other hazards. In practice, however, there is a significant gap between, those immediately concerned and at risk, the insiders (e.g. local communities and governments, faith groups, schools), and, on the other hand, the outsiders (e.g. scientists, national governments, international organisations, non-government organisations) who rarely coordinate and communicate (Gaillard and Mercer 2013). Amongst insiders, a further gap is observed between dominant actors (e.g. local governments, dominant ethnic and gender groups, adults) and marginalised groups (e.g. ethnic and gender minorities, youth and elderly, people with disabilities). Such gaps at different scales reflect similar difficulties in appraising and integrating different forms of knowledge and resources, the dominance of technocratic institutional frameworks, and a scarcity of appropriate tools to foster dialogue amongst all stakeholders.

  • Issue 77 - Dirk Hartog lands on beach, the gold-bearing province
    • Abstract: King, Robert J
      Dirk Hartog, master of the 'Eendracht', landed in October 1616 on the coast of a land then known as Beach. Beach was a prominent feature of the 'Terra Australis' on maps of that time. The name was a corruption of 'Locach', a country described by Marco Polo. The location of 'Locach' has been called one of the great riddles of Polo's text. It is likely that Marco Polo intended to refer by this name to Cambodia. Due to corruption and misunderstanding of Polo's text, 'Beach / Locach' was displaced from its true position to the 'Terra Australis', where it was found by Dirk Hartog in October 1616 and subsequently inspired Abel Tasman's expedition in 1642.

    • Abstract: Mawer, Granville Allen
      The Official History of Australia in the War of 1914-18 was conceived by Charles Bean, a journalist by profession, as a digger's eye view. The Official History's maps share that ethos, not least because they were drawn by men themselves drawn from the AIF. Their maps had technical limitations but were admirably fit for purpose. Bean's democratic legacy was continued in the official history of WWII, another episode of citizens in arms, but the maps were more professional. Australia's wars thereafter were not peoples' wars and the Bean approach, in maps as in text, lost its relevance.

    • Abstract: Foott, Bronwyn; Wojtkowski, Barbara
      In 1942, after a series of directives from General MacArthur's Headquarters, the Allied Geographical Section (AGS) was formed with the task of compiling all the available geographical intelligence on the largely unmapped and underexplored south-west Pacific area. During its lifespan (1942-45), the AGS produced 3 major types of publications: Terrain Studies; Special Reports; and Terrain Handbooks. The Terrain Studies were the most important and complex works, designed to give the most comprehensive information. Thus, they contained text, diagrams, photographs and various sized and coloured maps. In 2012, Monash University Library initiated a project to digitise its substantial collection of Terrain Studies and make them available via the Monash University Research Repository to complement its online collections for the ANZAC Centenary.

      This paper explores a number of aspects of the project: its genesis; challenges, given the format of the material; the scanning process; metadata creation and changing geography (role of gazetteers); how it complements existing WWI exhibits; and methods of access.

  • Issue 74 - Weighing two sources of information that a Portuguese ship
           might have entered the Clarence River in the early Sixteenth century
    • Abstract: Eliason, Andrew
      The thesis that Portuguese mariners discovered Australia in the early sixteenth century stems mainly from the depiction of Java la Grande, a continental land mass south of Java, on manuscript mappemondes (world maps) and atlases made at Dieppe in the mid-sixteenth century. According to Peter Trickett, author of the book Beyond Capricorn (2007) in which he argues for the thesis, an Aboriginal tradition suggests that a Portuguese ship on a voyage of discovery entered the Clarence River, the largest river on the northeast coast of New South Wales. He cited two sources of information about the tradition. An examination of the sources shows that one of the sources has no credibility and that, while the other source is credible, Trickett's interpretation of it is unreasonable. The elements of the Aboriginal story that Trickett interpreted as evidence of a possible visit by Portuguese are best understood as having their origins in contacts between Aborigines and British settlers in the early nineteenth century.

  • Issue 74 - 'A varied colonial career': Mapping the life and associates of
           Samuel Edward Roberts
    • Abstract: Woods, Martin
      Samuel Edward Roberts is one of former NSW Supreme Court Judge John Ferguson's collected lives. Ferguson, whose large collection of manuscripts, documents, maps and plans are a significant part of the National Library's cadastral mapping resources, acquired this small parcel of maps and manuscripts in the 1920s. The Library subsequently created a 'formed collection' around their subject, Roberts, who emigrated to South Australia in 1848 and became a printer and mining broker, active until his death in 1905. His career was perhaps typical of many whose practical use of maps represented key moments in their lives, but whose reasons for collecting or creating them have been obscured by time. The maps were recently catalogued, at last providing an opportunity for study. The following paper is an attempt to reanimate the Roberts collection as a form of biography, to see what may be recovered of the people and motives behind the maps, and of their collector Roberts.

  • Issue 74 - 'Special' map collections as biography: An appeal to further
           study
    • Abstract: Woods, Martin
      In library jargon, a group of maps associated with an individual or organization is often termed a 'special' or 'formed' collection, and given some sort of collective name pertaining to its subject matter, collector or creator. Perhaps there should be a competition to coin a maps-specific noun for these collections; however the problem facing most libraries is rather more practical. Whether to hold them as a special group or not, is a dilemma that faces most libraries that acquire an individual's (or organisation's) collected maps. On the one hand keeping a collection together as opposed to integration within a large run of maps preserves the distinctive nature of the donation. Retention in this form allows us, the map readers, continued appreciation of the intended uses of the maps and their makers, and an understanding of the personal and historical context of their collection. Dispersal into the main run of materials is an efficiency, no matter if metadata is applied to catalogue records retaining a kind of electronic unity. Like the increasing trend towards closure of printed map libraries, it is inevitably a dilution of collective memory, though increasingly a necessary one.

  • Issue 74 - Expert restoration or forgery: The case of an historic rare map
    • Abstract: Wullen, Susanne; Freeman, Sara
      While being examined for conservation treatment prior to its display in a major exhibition, a 1593 world map by Cornelis de Jode held by the National Library of Australia was discovered to include extensive restoration work of a much later date. Watermark and other analyses confirmed that while some of the map is original, other sections have been restored post-1920. As the Library was unaware of the extent of the restoration when it purchased the map, this raises questions as to the point at which such restoration goes beyond mere repair of an antique map and becomes instead partial forgery.

  • Issue 75 - Globus Biblioteki Jagiellonskiej z Początku w. XVI [A
           globe of the beginning of the 16th century in the Jagellon Library]
    • Abstract: Estreicher, Tadeusz; King, Robert J
      Among the objects of interest to be seen in the Jagellon University Library of Cracow, a very prominent one is a beautiful clock dating from the first years of the 16th century. A short account of this and of its workings, written by the French natural philosopher M. Ch. Ed. Guillaume, appeared eight years ago in the periodical "La Nature" (La Nature 1892 No.996, p.75). More interesting still is a globe which was found in the interior of the clock; no description of this has yet been published. Without going into the details of its construction which is to be found in the aforementioned essay by Guillaume, I will now pass on to a description of this globe of which a plani-spherical drawing is subjoined. The globe is composed of two hollow half spheres made of sheet copper thickly guilded; the diameter amounts to 731/2 m.m. Inside the globe are the workings and the axle, motionless in the clock, on which the globe turns.

  • Issue 75 - Tadeusz Estreicher and the Jagiellonian globe
    • Abstract: King, Robert J
      In 1902, the Krakow University academic Tadeusz Estreicher provided a translation of his paper on the Jagiellonian Globe of c.1510 to London-based Australian bibliographer Edward A. Petherick. The translation is now part of Petherick's papers, held by National Library of Australia. Although originally published in Polish by the Krakow Academy of Sciences in 1900, the publication of Estreicher's own English translation here is the first publication in English of what is still considered to be the basic study of the globe. Additional to his preface to the translation, the present author notes that the globe owes much to Martin Waldseem ller's world map of 1507, but that Estreicher's study was prepared before that map was revealed in 1901. The globe is shown to share with the map Waldseem ller's distinctive solution of representing within the 360 degrees of the Earth's circumference the location of East Asia according to both the Ptolemaic and Columban scales of longitude.

  • Issue 75 - A clash of toponymies, or toponymic conflict on Phillip Island,
           Norfolk Island Archipelago
    • Abstract: Nash, Joshua
      The Norfolk Island Archipelago offers researchers propitious instances relevant to toponymy and cartography. This position piece details the role and placement of toponyms as mappable cultural capital using the example of Phillip Island, a small island six kilometres south of Norfolk. Maps are presented and a toponymic hierarchy is defined and explicated. The hierarchy reveals Norf'k names - toponyms in the Norfolk Island language - exist as more 'authentic', i.e. Norf'k names are more highly valued by the community than English names.

  • Issue 75 - Political Captain Cook
    • Abstract: Cameron-Ash, Margaret
      Captain Cook made two complete charts of New Zealand. The first one, which is extraordinarily accurate, was delivered to the Admiralty on his return in 1771 but remained unpublished for decades. The second chart, which contains a major error, was published in 1773 and many times since. This paper compares the two charts and reviews Cook's journal entries relating to their compilation. The author argues that, in light of the rivalries of eighteenth century Europe, Cook's error was not a mistake as historians have always believed, but rather a deliberate misrepresentation, authorized by the Admiralty.

  • Issue 81 - Mapping colonial Sydney: From a gaol via a nodal city to an
           international centre
    • Abstract: Tonkinson, Alice; Clancy, Robert
      The cartographic record of colonial Sydney illustrates change from an isolated English penal colony of one thousand inhabitants, to an independent international centre of half a million. The objectives of this article are, by review of the cartography of the period, to illustrate: - the evolution from a penal colony (1788-1840) via a 'nodal city' passaging rural product, to a regional centre, but with chaotic disconnect between residential, commercial, and service functions - the switch from a small walking city with a supply network occupying the Cumberland Plain, to an urban/suburban complex absorbing its immediate hinterland as 'railway' suburbs. The maps discussed reflect key milestones in the urban development of Sydney, namely the crossing of the Great Divide and subsequent unlocking of Sydney's hinterland (1813), the tenure of Governor Macquarie (1810-21), the establishment of a City Council (1842), the discovery of gold (1851) and the introduction of steam travel (1855). The second part of this article provides an overview of the development of commercial map publishing in Sydney throughout the colonial period, demonstrating that map production was influenced by the broader economy.

  • Issue 81 - '...The investigation of the coast had not been greatly
           extended...': Circumstance and chance on the periphery in the exploration
           of the new south Wales coast, 1795-1840
    • Abstract: Hoskins, Ian
      This paper argues that the European exploration and knowledge of the present-day New South Wales coast in early to mid-colonial times proceeded as a result of circumstances and decisions created in the colony - on the periphery - rather than as a result of strategic direction from London. The need to extend penal settlement and the related flight of convicts gradually built up knowledge that helped to consolidate terrestrial enterprises such grazing, cropping and timber getting. There is little evidence, if any, that exploring this section of coastline was guided by the desire for security or maritime commerce. This case for localism complicates larger discussions about the imperatives underpinning the colonisation of Australia and the coastal exploration that followed, discussions that too often look at the larger picture without consideration of specific coastlines and the circumstances that pertained to them.

  • Issue 81 - Guillaume le Testu's opinion of java la grande
    • Abstract: Eliason, Andrew
      The identity or nature of Java la Grande on the Dieppe maps has long been controversial. Some have held it to be a depiction of Australia (or Australasia) but others have held it to be a cosmographical fiction. A few authors have drawn attention to the commentaries that Guillaume Le Testu inscribed in his manuscript atlas Cosmographie universelle, dated 1555/6, and have offered them as a proof that the land mass is, after all, imaginary. The argument depends on a single sentence in just one of the commentaries. When Le Testu's atlas is examined more broadly, with regard to the information supplied by other commentaries, the contents of Le Testu's charts, and the works of the Dieppe school of cartographers up to his time, it turns out that his opinion of Java la Grande is probably the same as those of his colleagues, that Java la Grande is as real as Tierra del Fuego.

  • Issue 81 - Franciscus Monachus' southern continent, in his own words
    • Abstract: King, Robert J
      ranciscus Monachus (c.1490-1565), a Franciscan monk and noted cosmographer living in Mechelin, Brabant, wrote an undated letter to his patron, Jean de Carondelet, titular Archbishop of Palermo in 1526 or 1527. The letter, a treatise on geography, was published as a booklet in Antwerp under the title of De Orbis Situ ac Descriptione. Its title page was illustrated with a map of the world in two hemispheres, each measuring 65mm 65mm, which were engraved on separate wood blocks. The booklet was written to accompany and explain a globe constructed by Gaspard van de Heyden for Carondelet, which has not survived. The double hemisphere map is a small and rough woodcut and lacks detail. Cartographic historian Rodney Shirley has said of it: "Together with [Johannes] Schoener's globes of 1515 and 1520, this is one of the first renderings of the Terra Australis on a printed map; it is also one of the earliest maps to recognize the rounding of the tip of South America by Magellan".

  • Issue 81 - Mapping a stateless continent
    • Abstract: Manning, John
      Antarctica can be described as a stateless continent; it has never had an indigenous population, nor a permanent colonial occupation that exercised political or economic control. Consequently it has had no clear single ownership or governance, and mapping has come from a number of contributing sources. Since 1958 mapping of the Antarctic continent has benefited from international cooperation and coordination by working groups within the Scientific Committee for Antarctic Research (SCAR) and the nature of mapping has evolved utilising satellite imagery. Australia had an ongoing leadership role in chairing the relevant SCAR working groups from 1961 to 2002.

  • Issue 81 - The terrestrial sphere of "the spheres" tapestries - revisited
    • Abstract: Hewitt, John
      This is the second article on the terrestrial sphere of the Spheres tapestries, a series woven in Brussels for King Joao (John) III of Portugal (born 1502, enthroned 1521, died 1557) and his wife, Catarina (Catherine) of Austria (1507- 1578). The article discusses an alternative hypothesis to that advanced by the author in this journal in 2010. Then it was suggested the tapestries may have been commissioned by a member of Catherine's family and the map supplied by cartographer, Franciscus Monachus. This article explores the hypothesis that the tapestries were commissioned by King John III, woven in Brussels (ca.1528) based on designs developed in Portugal, and made to celebrate the achievements of Portugal under the House of Aviz, particularly during the reign of King Manuel I (1469-1521). It is suggested the terrestrial sphere may be the work of King John's master for making charts, Lopo Homem. It is noted that there is an affinity between the terrestrial sphere and Oronce Fine's world map of 1531, Johannes Sch ner's globe of 1533, and other works. It is asserted that the terrestrial sphere is the only known Portuguese map from the middle decades of the sixteenth century to depict a southern continent. The map appears to contain a Portuguese claim of sovereignty over part of the assumed austral continent, and could be the earliest known map to show the continent extending north of the Tropic of Capricorn, south of modern day Indonesia. The terrestrial sphere will add to the debate about Portuguese discovery of Australia in the sixteenth century. The opportunity has been taken to expand the discussion on the "Earth Under The Protection of Jupiter and Juno" tapestry and to correct errors in the first article.

  • Issue 81 - When do linguists make their best (cartographic) work'
    • Abstract: Nash, Joshua
      The title of this research note alludes to P.H. Franses' papers in Creativity Research Journal 'When Do Painters Make Their Best Work'' (2013) and 'When Did Nobel Prize Laureates in Literature Make Their Best Work'' (2014). The speculative polemic is based on several years of linguistic engagement involving fieldwork in remote island communities in Oceania. I contend that doing linguistics, specifically collecting toponymic (placename) data, is an aesthetic, artistic, and creative commitment as well as a scientific endeavour involving accessing the language awareness of a group of individuals. The creative manifestation of linguistic and toponymic research is twofold: the explicit cartographic representation, where I pose the map as art, and the more subtle interaction and development of friendships within specific communities associated with the research. Both appearances are creatively driven and are a part of accessing how we possess and become aware of language and how such language is expressed in maps.

  • Issue 81 - Marco Polo's java and locach on mercator's world maps of 1538
           and 1569, and globe of 1541
    • Abstract: King, Robert J
      The descriptions of Locach, Java Major and Java Minor by Marco Polo and Ludovico di Varthema were drawn upon by Gerard Mercator in constructing his world maps of 1538 and 1569, and globe of 1541. His depiction of these lands in 1538 was influenced by the 1531 and 1536 world maps of Oronce Fine. Fine's maps also influenced contemporary Breton and Norman cartographers in their depiction of these lands on their series of world maps, 1546 to 1583. The Regio Patalis, a promontory of the Terra Australis on Fine's maps, became Beach on Mercator's 1541 globe, and 1ocach/Beach on his 1569 world map. The Breton, Guillaume Brouscon, also identified this promontory of the Terra Australis as Locach on his world map of 1543, while the Dieppe Norman cartographers identified it with Java la Grande. Dirk Hartog's discovery of Eendracht Land in 1616 was initially incorporated into Mercator's model, and identified with Beach.
