LaBorde, Jean Benjamin de

Jean-Benjamin De LaBorde (1734-1794) was best known as a musician Labordefrom the age of 14, but was also a historian and cartographer(a) . In his Histoire abregeee de la Mer du Sud[1266],  it appears he was the first to suggest a sunken continent in the South Pacific with New Zealand and other island groups being today’s remnants of Plato’s lost land.
