Anian Strait Of
Dr. Ruge says that the name arose through a
misunderstanding of Marco Polo's book (bk. 3, ch. 5). His Ania "is no
doubt the present Anam, but the Dutch cartographers thought that this
land was in north-east Asia, and called the strait that was said to
separate the continents the Strait of Anian." The name appears for the
first time on Gerh. Mercator's famous maritime chart of 1569. =Index=:
