Caption: Map of Antarctica. 18th-century map showing the supposed form of the recently discovered southern continent of Antarctica. The map incorrectly shows Antarctica as two land masses separated by a sea over the South Pole. The labels, text and inscriptions are in French. This map is from 'Cartes et tables de la geographie physique ou naturelle' (1757) by French geographers and cartographers Philippe Buache (1700-1773) and Guillaume de l'Isle (1675-1726).
