Engraved outline hand color hydrographic map of the World. Includes explanation.
Although this lacks a title page and index, it is a collection of maps that closely corresponds to Meyer's Zeittungs und Groschen Atlas. The maps are dated from 1832 to 1854, with the largest number dated between 1849 and 1852. There are six detailed maps of groups of the United States, including an interesting "Californien, Texas und die Territorien New Mexico u. Utah" of 1852 that shows the gold region in California and has a Texas truncated by an enlarged New Mexico. The bound order of the maps is puzzling, seeming to skip around from country to country with no obvious logic - however, there is a manuscript index listing all the maps and the pages are also numbered in ms. Also there are 5 pages of manuscript index placed in the atlas listing the maps in detail. The maps are of the highest Meyer quality and, although small, packed with information. Outline color. Atlas is bound in half leather marbled paper covered boards with a paper label reading "Schwartz" in ms.
