Popular Post Still Waters Posted November 6, 2017 Popular Post #1 Share Posted November 6, 2017 (IP: Staff) · A rare 17th Century map of Australia, one of just two left, has been found in an attic. Created in 1659 by renowned Dutch cartographer Joan Blaeu, the unique map was thought to have been lost forever. Archipelagus Orientalis (Eastern Archipelago), as it was called, was unearthed in 2010 in storage in Sweden after 350 years. It is believed that the treasure was buried away when a 1950s antique bookseller who owned a stockpile of books and maps went out of business. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-australia-41885447 11 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
