Antarctica Map 1957
Item#: X NGC 091957a

Just six months after the death of famed American polar explorer Admiral Richard E. Byrd, National Geographic Magazine published this striking map of Antarctica. A companion to the article "Year of Discovery Opens in Antarctica," this map captures the icy continent at a pivotal time in its exploration and contains a great amount of detail of both its geography and the history of the multi-national expeditions which have traversed it.

The 1957 Antarctica map features:
• An abundance of information about the geography and history of Antarctic exploration
• An ice terminology key
• Insets showing relative size of Antarctica to the United States and relation of Antarctica to surrounding continents
• Detailed inset of the Queen Maud Range
• International Geophysical Year stations are identified by country
• Includes prevailing winds and sea currents
• Glaciers, ice shelfs, hummocked ice, and mountain ranges are clearly illustrated
