An Improved Map of Iceland

Author:
Emanuel Bowen
Country:
England
Publication year:
1750 (about)
 
Emanuel Bowen can not be considered an original cartographer, this map is a copy of Iceland as it appears on the maps of Herman Moll who again got his ideas from Joris Carolus. Place-names are the same, only three are missing. This is not, therefore, an improved map of Iceland. On the same sheet as the map of Iceland are three other maps, of Greenland, the Faroe Islands and a whirlpool in the sea.
