  • Issue 87 - Cartographic drift: Pulo Condor and the 'ysles de magna' and
           'ye de saill' on the Dieppe maps

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: King, Robert J
      It is argued that the islands 'ysles de magna' and 'ye de saill' on the Harleian world map of 'c'.1546, that also appear with slight variations in their names on the other Dieppe world maps, are the Unfortunate Isles discovered by Ferdinand Magellan in 1522, re-named with a corrupted version of part of his name and displaced to the vicinity of 'Jave la Grande'.

      Abstract: King, Robert J
      Several errors crept into Robert King's translation of 'Franciscus Monachus' De Orbis Situ Ac Desriptione', published last issue, the most egregious being the complete omission of five paragraphs from both the original and the translation. The opportunity has also been taken to revise the correct the translation in several places. The necessary revisions are given below.

  • Issue 87 - Cook conspiracy at point hicks'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Lipscombe, Trevor
      Margaret Cameron-Ash has set a cat among the pigeons in the world of Cook Studies with her book 'Lying for the Admiralty' (Cameron-Ash, 2018a). She claims that Lt James Cook, in a conspiracy with the British Admiralty, deliberately fabricated 'evidence' to dissuade the French from colonising parts of New Zealand and Australia. An important part of her argument concerns the Admiralty's desire to hide the existence of Bass Strait (between the Australian mainland and Tasmania) to discourage French colonisation of Van Diemens Land (now Tasmania), and was also published in The Globe as "Captain Cook invented Point Hicks to hide Bass Strait'' (Cameron-Ash, 2018b). This article examines Cameron-Ash's case that Cook sought to disguise the existence of Bass Strait under orders from the Admiralty. Since this was a secret and possibly oral order, she has been unable to trace any documentation supporting this claim.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Whyte, Brendan
      During the Cold War, the Soviet military produced secret mapping of over 2000 cities around the world. Detailed plans are known to exist for five Australian and three New Zealand cities. The single-sheet 1:25,000 map of Canberra is described here, and the descriptive marginal texts fully translated for the first time. The source materials are identified, and the quality and known errors of the mapping discussed.

  • Issue 87 - Lt. James Cook's misplaced landmarks of the coasts of Victoria
           and NSW

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Lipscombe, Trevor
      This article provides an account of recently published research by members of Australia on the Map, the history and heritage Division of the Australasian Hydrographic Society. It reveals that more than a fifth of the 28 land features named by Cook on the coasts of Victoria and New South Wales are not in his intended locations, and appear in the wrong place on today's maps and charts. Only now, 250 years after Cook's voyage, do we have an accurate, published record of what Cook actually saw and named on these coasts in 1770. These findings have wider implications. Other coasts charted by Cook, and particularly that of Queensland, may harbour similar errors. And what of other navigators from an age where navigational techniques lacked today's precision' The emerging insights from the research reported here provide evidence of how such misplacements occurred and potentially inform further enquiry.

  • Issue 87 - Treasured Islands: Charting the imagination

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Mawer, Granville Allen
      Many imaginary places, from Atlantis to Utopia and beyond, have been located on islands. Some of those creations have been illustrated by maps. This paper looks at four illustrated/mapped islands that were purposefully created for children: Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, J. M. Barrie's Neverland, R. M. Ballantyne's Coral Island and Arthur Ransome's Wildcat Island. All feature pirates, and all but one involves buried treasure. In doing that, they defy history because there are very few instances of real pirates burying treasure and even fewer of them mapping the location - in fact none. Any adult conviction to the contrary can be put down to the abiding influence of childhood reading and in particular to the power of maps as images. When I mentioned to a friend that I was exploring the concept he recalled that when he was about 10 he and a mate drew a pirate treasure map, pasted it on another piece of paper to imitate the thickness of parchment and charred the edges to impart authenticity. I asked if after the passage of 60 years he could recreate that map from memory alone, without reference to any other source.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: King, Robert J
      The similarities between the anonymous Paris Gilt Globe, the Stuttgart globe gores attributed to Johannes Schoener, and the lost globe described by Franciscus Monachus have long been noted. It is argued here that the Gilt Globe and Stuttgart Gores may be the globe described by Franciscus. There has never been a complete translation made of Franciscus' De Orbis Situ out of its sixteenth century Latin and the present article is based on the author's own translation (published separately in this issue). Particular attention is given to his treatment of the southern continent and its impact on other geographers and map-makers of his own time and subsequently.

  • Issue 86 - Drawing North America by hand

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Thomas, Anton
      In February 2019, I put the finishing touches on a map that took four and a half years to complete. What began as a passion project ended up taking over my life, as I became utterly submerged in a cartographic odyssey: North America: Portrait of a Continent. Drawn entirely with colour pencil and fine-liner pen, this 1500 x 1200mm (59 x 47 inch) map contains tens of thousands of items of content, from the Arctic to Central America, even the deepest reaches of the ocean. 600 individualised cityscapes populate the map, and the content varies widely. All range of animals, plants, culture, history, industry, symbology, and more are laid out across a flowing terrain. It draws from a vast sweep of the physical and cultural geography of the continent and is intended to encourage geographic enthusiasm in a broad audience. Inspired by several years I spent travelling the continent, its completion has been a long time coming. As prints begin to roll out, there is much to discuss about the origins, technical execution, intents and experiences of drawing North America by hand.

      Abstract: Hewitt, John
      The late Dr. Helen Wallis wondered why there was no landmass similar to 'Java la Grande' on surviving Portuguese maps of the period 1540-1570, when the Dieppe school was active. In answering the question this article discusses three relevant maps and the changing role of Portugal's hydrographic repository, 'Armazem da Guine e Indias', as the Portuguese Empire progressed from its era of discoveries to a maritime trading empire.
