The only known atlas of the Gulf of Pappant, Wataynd’s monumental work is the crown jewel for many above-water libraries. The entire gulf is mapped out in exquisite detail, showing area of habitation, disputed areas, and even the dry terrain out to 10 miles from the coast. There’s been at least one war declared to acquire the atlas and its valuable information, and there will surely be more. It is believed that there are only three copies of this rare book.
