"The United Countries of Baseball" from Strange Maps

I've long had a thing for maps. Relatives can attest to my sitting on the floor reading atlases, or whiling away long car trips with the road map on my lap oblivious to the view outside. I reacted with great pleasure therefore when I stumbled across Strange Maps.

I have no idea who is behind this garden of cartographic delights. I'm just glad they are taking the time to post.

I popped over for a look and was there half an hour. Did you notice the Chinese map of the world, claimed to be from the 15th century? There used to be land at the north pole, I wonder where it went
