Based on a literal interpretation of the Bible, this map depicts the earth's continents in a donut-like basin and portends a flat earth theory that discounts the existence of gravity. Produced and published by self-proclaimed doctor Orlando Ferguson, a native of South Dakota, this map existed in relative obscurity until it was donated and accepted by the Library of Congress in 2011. His depiction places the sun and moon in lamp-like positions and attempts to explain the so-called Columbus phenomenon. This is the perception of a ship breaching the horizon with only the mast being visible before the hull comes into view, and the view of the ship grows as it gets nearer.
When the Library of Congress received the map, it was one of only two known to exist still and the only intact representation. This rare piece of cartographical history shows the world in a period of significant advances in technology and culture. As the nineteenth century neared, industrialization and improvements in transportation had caused a boom of prosperity throughout Northern America during the Gilded Age.
As the turn of the century neared, the world was transitioning from traditional agrarian cultures to a more urban, developed, and modern setting. The unique aesthetic and distinctive style of this piece immediately transport the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present. This original work of cartographical history has become an important artifact documenting alternative scientific theories and thinking.
