Nat Williams, James and Bettison Treasures Curator at the National Library of Australia, discusses the Fra Mauro Map of the World. Created by the monk Fra Mauro between 1390-1459, it is one of the most important and famous maps of all time and the crown jewel of the collections of the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana in Venice. For the first time in its nearly 600-year history, it will leave Italy to appear in the National Library of Australia's exhibition Mapping Our World: Terra Incognita to Australia.

Mapping Our World is only showing at the National Library in Canberra from 7 November 2013-10 March 2014. http://www.nla.gov.au/exhibitions/map...
