Erlauterungen zu H. Kiepert's Handatlas
Berlin - A. W. Schade, 1860. Berlin - A. W. Schade, 1860 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A highly detailed text being Kiepert's notes on his famous and highly sought after collection of maps, Neuer Handatlas ber alle Teile der Erde. Written in German and dated 1st July, 1860. Heinrich Kiepert was a German geographer. In his youth he travelled with his parents and had a particular interest in the geographic circumstances, which he carefully sketched. Among the friends of the family was the historian Leopold von Ranke, which advised the parents to support the boy's innate talent. Kiepert already began to criticisethe faulty execution of historic maps in school books. Among Kiepert's general works one of the most important was the excellent Neuer Handatlas ber alle Teile der Erde, and he also compiled a large number of special and educational maps. Asia Minor was an area in which he took particular interest. He visited it four times in 1841-8; and his first map (18431846), together with his Karte des osmanischen Reiches in Asien (1844 and 1869), formed the highest authority for the geography of the region. Condition: In a cloth binding with gilt lettering to the front board. Externally, lightly rubbed with some minor bumping. A few light marks to the rear board. Internally, firmly bound and bright. Instances of light spotting and slight marginal tide marks throughout. Overall: GOOD ONLY due to spotting..
