Back among the gums
Back to a favorite haunt, Geisel Libraryat USCD. In their little gallery, an exhibition of old books on pirates included this 1719 Robinson Crusoe from back when Australia was just an edge and California still an island! Turns out the map's from Dampier's 1698 New Voyage Round the World.
