Abstract

Maps always combine elements of fact and fancy, if diversely and to varying degrees depending on era, agenda, and genre. In European cartography after 1500, the shifting liaison of familiar and imagined is notable with respect to the vast, largely maritime section of the globe that spans what are now Island Southeast Asia, Australia, New Guinea, Aotearoa New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands.
