An unusual map of the world with physical topography that reveals mountain ranges both on land and under the sea.
The curious undersea mountain ranges displayed here were drawn by Andre Mongez to illustrate the geographical theories of Peter Simon Pallas, a German polymath living in Russia, who speculated that mountain ranges originated from volcanoes.
In addition to Pallas's unusual marine topography, this map includes several of the speculative cartographic incorrect features of the late 1700’s.

Included are the presence of a large inland sea in the western part of North America, a series of navigable channels in Northern Canada and a mountainous Nile source in Africa. Van Diemen's Land or Tasmania is attached to the mainland of Australia. A southern continent is only tenuously suggested by two speculative landmasses shown just south of Tierra del Fuego.
This map was first drawn by Andre Mongez, then engraved by Ambrose Tardieu for inclusion in Mentelle's 1779 'Atlas Universel'.
Ambroise Tardieu (1788-1841) was a prominent French cartographer and engraver. Tardieu's work is known for its beauty and accuracy as well as for its depth of detail.
