Phantom Islands of the AtlanticBook - 1994
In Phantom Islands of the Atlantic, Donald Johnson tells the strange stories of nonexistent islands that were nevertheless claimed for various European countries, described and carefully mapped. Johnson has tested the technology available to the cartographers, navigators and writers who documented these phantom islands. He has discovered what they knew of history, studied their legends, explored their faith, and traced how they expanded the limits of understanding.
