Book Description Australian Scholarly Publishing, Melbourne, 2013. Trade Paperback. 1st Edition. MINT - a NEW copy. Colour and black & white illustrations. The discolouration at the spine edge in the picture is actually part of the cover not a flaw. 268 pages The southern hemisphere is mainly land. So said medieval Europeans, raised on a heady brew of folklore, biblical revelation and geographical theory. It is how they imagined it. So powerful was the hold of this received wisdom that when geographical discoveries, however insignificant, were made in the southern oceans, they were greeted as evidence that the expected continental landmasses, rich and fertile, might at last have been found.
