A Short Map of Nearly Everything

Just a quick one to say that I have finally got round to starting to read Bill Bryson’s excellent A Short History of Nearly Everything, which I was actually bought as a birthday present last year. Anyway, it is very good and I can’t believe it has taken me so long to get round to cracking the spine. I mention it here, though, because I was wondering if I’m the only person to have noticed something missing from the front cover?

Go on, take a close look… map of the world anyone? Big gaping empty space just north of France?
