Caption: Atlantic and Arctic islands. 17th-century maps of the islands of Bermuda (upper left), Greenland and Frisland (upper right), Jan Mayen Island (lower left) and Newfoundland (lower right). Bermuda is in the Northern Atlantic. Frisland was a phantom island that appeared near Greenland in maps in the 16th and 17th century. As seen here, Greenland was poorly mapped at the time. Jan Mayen Island is a Norwegian island in the Arctic east of Greenland. Newfoundland is an island off the eastern coast of what is now Canada. These maps were published in 'Corso geografico universale' (Venice, 1692) by Italian priest and cartographer Vincenzo Coronelli (1650-1718).
