35Colossi Maps

These colossi are cartographic curiosities as they were included along with two other images of colossal figures in Matthaus Seutter’s Atlas Novus published in 1728 and 1730. Four additional maps from this atlas are included in the exhibit because of their elaborate and artistic cartouches.

Matthaus Seutter the elder (1678-1757) was an engraver, globe maker and map publisher based in Augsburg, Germany. He apprenticed with Johann Baptist Homann in Nuremberg and was awarded the title of Imperial Geographer by Karl VI in 1731. By 1732, Seutter was one of the most prolific publishers of his time and was honored by the German Emperor Charles VI with the title of “Imperial Geographer”. He continued to publish until his death in 1757.

36Captain Cook Engravings and Maps

Various maps and engravings that were among the illustrations included in the publications of Captain Cook's journals that served as a first hand account of the experiences of Cook and the crew on each of his three 18th century voyages. These voyages resulted in monumental discoveries of previous unknown lands, people, animals and plants. They were responsible for changing conceptions off the world, particularly the Pacific Ocean from Australia to North America. The official British Admiralty authorized journal publications in total include 8 volumes of text, maps and engravings (3 volumes for the 1st and 3rd voyages and 2 volumes for the 2nd voyage and an atlas of engravings that accompanied the journal of the 3rd voyage).

37The Cartographic History of San Francisco

This exhibit was first presented by Jim Schein and Tom Paper on April 18, 2019, at the offices of Webster Pacific in downtown San Francisco. The date, April 18, was the anniversary of the great earthquake and fire of 1906. The exhibit was a pop-up, which meant that it was put up and taken down within a span of six hours. Every image was printed and mounted onto a posterboard and then rested on a portable easel. The exhibit remains available as a popup for venues that have 150 lineal feet of wall-space.

40George Washington and the American Revolution, 1775-1776

During the first two, precarious years of the American Revolution, the outcome was often in doubt. The Digital Gallery is pleased to present the exhibit, “George Washington and the American Revolution, 1775-1776,” to chronicle these critical times through historic maps, iconic paintings, and explanatory text. Here you can explore the maps and images related to both the defeats and eventual victories of these campaigns.

October 2021: “Terrain and Tactics, British War Plan of 1776,” new article by Ronald Gibbs, Courtney Spikes and Thomas Paper. British General William Howe’s “War Plan illustrates the dichotomy of…[his]…tactical brilliance and his characteristic delays that thwarted his ultimate success. In contrast, General Washington was able to maintain the integrity of his army and keep the cause of American independence alive despite his initial defeats” (excerpt from the article). The article was published on-line in Journal of the American Revolution on October 12, 2021. To read the article, click here.

55Coronelli's Atlas of 1693


"Vincenzo Maria Coronelli (August 16, 1650 – December 9, 1718) was an Italian Franciscan friar, cosmographer, cartographer, publisher, and encyclopedist known in particular for his atlases and globes. He spent most of his life in Venice. Vincenzo Coronelli was born, probably in Venice, on August 16, 1650, the fifth child of a Venetian tailor named Maffio Coronelli. At ten, young Vincenzo was sent to the city of Ravenna and was apprenticed to a xylographer. In 1663 he was accepted into the Conventual Franciscans, becoming a novice in 1665. At age sixteen he published the first of his one hundred forty separate works. In 1671 he entered the Convent of Saint Maria Gloriosa dei Frari in Venice, and in 1672 Coronelli was sent by the order to the College of Saint Bonaventura and Saints Apostoli in Rome where he earned his doctor’s degree in theology in 1674. He excelled in the study of both astronomy and Euclid. A little before 1678, Coronelli began working as a geographer and was commissioned to make a set of terrestrial and celestial globes for Ranuccio II Farnese, Duke of Parma. Each finely crafted globe was five feet in diameter (c. 175 cm) and so impressed the Duke that he made Coronelli his theologian. Coronelli's renown as a theologian grew and in 1699 he was appointed Father General of the Franciscan order."

63Klencke Atlas - Joan Blaeu - 1660

Text from David Rumsey: "The Klencke Atlas resides at the British Library and we are grateful to them for providing scanned images of the atlas and complete catalog metadata as part of a joint project to scan and catalog the maps and atlases from the low countries of Europe that are part of the King George III Topographical Collections.

The Klencke Atlas is one of the world's biggest: it measures 176 x 231 cm when open.

It takes its name from Joannes Klencke, who presented it to Charles II on his restoration to the British thrones in 1660. Its size and its 40 or so large wall maps from the Golden Age of Dutch mapmaking were supposed to suggest that it contained all the knowledge in the world.

At another level, it was a bribe intended to spur the King into granting Klencke and his associates trading privileges and titles.

Charles, who was a map enthusiast, appreciated the gift. He placed the atlas with his most precious possessions in his cabinet of curiosities, and Klencke was knighted.

Later generations have benefited too. The binding has protected the wall maps which have survived for us to enjoy - unlike the vast majority of other wall maps which, exposed to light, heat and dirt when hung on walls, have crumbled away.

Titled 'Orbis Terræ Compendium, Carolo Secundo dedicatum a I. Kliencke. i.e. a Collection of Maps by Blaeu, Hondius, Visscher, &c. One Volume 5 feet 10 inches by 3 feet 2 inches."

64Look At The World - by Richard Edes Harrison - 1944

Text from David Rumsey: "Richard Harrison produced in this remarkable atlas a unique view of the world for the "Air-age globalism" - a discursive phenomenon throughout the development of World War II that accounted for the rapid “shrinking” of the world through air technologies and the internationalization of American interests. Cartography became air-age globalism’s primary popular expression, and journalistic cartographers such as Richard Edes Harrison at Fortune magazine introduced new mapping projections and perspectives in response to the global changes."

During the 19th and 20th centuries, cities’ local chambers of commerce and other civic organizations prepared and sponsored their own maps as ways to advertise the existing commercial activity. Pictorial maps are also known as "illustrated maps, panoramic maps, perspective maps, bird's-eye view maps, and geopictorial maps." This style of map commonly uses a 3-D perspective and heightened angle, typically not drawn to scale. Wikipedia

"Somewhat like the websites of their time, every town sought to have one [panoramic map] to remain competitive in attracting industry and the immigrant trade. Sometimes artistic exaggeration bordered on the fraudulent, as some travelers were drawn by images of idyllic, bustling towns with humming factories only to find a sad little bunch of mud-soaked shacks when they got there." Wikipedia

Five main artists/cartographers created over 55% of the Library of Congress’ panoramic map collection, likely due to the long process of creating each map. Artists would walk city streets, sketching notable trees, buildings, and landmarks, later combining the sketches and raising the visual angle to accurately depict the landscape.

Advancements in artistic technologies (lithography, engraving, etc.) allowed for expedited pictorial map recreation. Popular, and heavily detailed, city maps functioned in local homes as wall decor, promoting personal civic pride. Hosts were able to point out to visitors exactly where they lived, worked, and socialized, heightening the relationship between identity and locale. While production occurred throughout the country, the demand for city promotion was higher north of the Mason-Dixon line.

Many of these maps (both originals and modern recreations) are still popular today for their detail and visual appeal. Panoramic pictorial maps serve as the main way that the “vitality of America’s urban centers” was graphically documented.

For Minnesota specifically, these maps showcase the state's history and growth through mining, milling, timber, and railroads. Minnesota is also notorious for its plethora of lakes and associated recreational activities. The cities showcased in this exhibit represent the metropolitan growth of both Minnesota, and the Midwest as a whole.

67The Harmonia Macrocosmica of Andreas Cellarius

From R.H. van Gent, r.h.vangent@uu.nl, Utrecht University

"The Dutch-German mathematician and cosmographer Andreas Cellarius is well known to map historians and historians of astronomy as the author of the Harmonia Macrocosmica (first published in 1660), a folio-sized work that is commonly regarded to be one of the most spectacular cosmographical atlases that was published in the second half of the seventeenth century.

Andreas Cellarius was born around the year 1596 in Neuhausen, a small town near Worms. He was the son of Andreas Cellarius, who was a pastor in Neuhausen from 1596 to 1599 and later moved to Heidelberg – the name of his mother is not known. After his education at the Sapierzkolleg in Heidelberg, Andreas Cellarius enrolled as a student at the University of Heidelberg in 1614 but it is not known how long he studied there or which lectures he attended.

In 1637 Andreas Cellarius moved to Hoorn, where he was appointed as rector of the Latin School in the former Ceciliaklooster. All of Andreas Cellarius’s scholarly works were published during his rectorship in Hoorn. Andreas Cellarius died in February/March of 1665 – the location of his grave is not known. His eldest son Andreas died in November of the same year and was buried in a rented grave near to the choir in the Grote Kerk of Hoorn.

His best known work, the Harmonia Macrocosmica, was published in 1660 (a reprint was issued in 1661) by the Amsterdam publisher Johannes Janssonius (1588-1664) as a cosmographical supplement to his Atlas Novus. Andreas Cellarius had already started working on this atlas before 1647 and intended it to be a historical introduction for a two-volume treatise on cosmography but the second part was never published.

The plates of his Harmonia Macrocosmica were reprinted (usually without the historical introduction and commentary) in 1708 by the Amsterdam publishers Gerard Valk (1652-1726) and Petrus Schenk the Elder (1660-1711) after acquiring the copperplates of Janssonius in 1694."

68The American South in the 19th Century


Maps about the American South in the 19th Century, especially about cotton and slavery. Created as a supplement to a class hosted on October 21st, 2020 by my friend, Jan van Eck. The presentation was led by Steven Mintz of the University of Texas at Austin. The first map, however, is of Africa and was featured in a book called "America in 100 Maps" by Susan Schulten; it is a British map highlighting the extreme competition between the British and other countries over slave trading. My other favorite maps are Lincoln's slavery map from 1861 and the Armour map of commodities across the US, as well as the Reynold's 1856 map of the divided nature of the country in 1856, which features telling statistics about population of whites and slaves.

84Levi Walter Yaggy - 1887 & 1893

Welcome to The Digital Gallery’s exhibit on Levi Walter Yaggy, comprising 30+ images from the late 1800's used to teach kids about geography. When I first saw his maps and images, I imagined that the creator of these fantastic and creative images must have someone like van Gogh, Warhol or Basquiat, because of my notion of what is a creative personality. Well, it turns out, I was significantly wrong. Levi Walter Yaggy, was an entrepreneur, an investor, an inventor and a farmer. He was born in 1848, the tenth of eleven children. His main business was the Western Publishing House, a company he founded when he was 26 and which grew to have over one thousand employees. His inventiveness may explain why his maps and images have flaps, dials, sliders and other mechanical elements.

As a publisher, Yaggy’s company specialized in materials for teachers. His maps came in a kit and were each substantial in size, about 2 feet x 3 feet. Our Yaggy exhibit is composed of two sub-exhibits. The first, from 1893, has nine images that represent geographic terms and climate zones of the world, as well as a relief map of the United States. An unfortunate part of his work is the propagation of the racist idea that temperate zones and their people favor superior cultural development over tropical zones and their people. However, from an information design perspective, his maps and images are exquisitely done because they are "BAZIC" (see Google Slide below). They of their simplicity, their use of color and the overall engagement they foster.

102The Ratliff Family in Early Virginia and West Virginia - E102

Maps of Virginia and West Virginia regions during the 18th and 19th centuries. This exhibit maps the Ratliff family in Virginia during the 18th and 19th centuries. The oldest Ratliff family records that I have located so far date from about 1730-1740 in Louisa County, then Bath County beginning about 1801.

103Cross-cultural Mapping of the Mediterranean 10th-17th century

This exhibit shows different views of the Mediterranean in maps or their copies on parchment or on paper as single items, in manuscripts or in atlases. These maps were sketched, drawn or painted in different locations along the Mediterran shores or in major cultural centers on the mainland south, east and north of the sea. Their languages are Arabic, Latin, Ottoman Turkish or various vernaculars that grew out of Latin. Two issues will be explored. First, we ask how the Mediterranean and its geographical, physical and cultural part were perceived by the map producer/s. Second, we highlight a cross-cultural nature of their compositions.

116Jo Mora's Carte of Los Angeles - 1942


This exhibit has been created by Peter Hiller, Curator of The Jo Mora Trust and Nancy Grossman. Here by author and researcher Nancy W. Grossman shares with Digital Gallery viewers her introduction to Jo Mora as found in her book Jo Mora's Carte of Los Angeles: A Trail Guide published in December 2019.

Further in the digital exhibit, the dots found on the map correspond to a few of the sections in her book each of which articulates the significance of those vignettes found on Jo Mora's carte...

"Joseph Jacinto “Jo” Mora. How does one begin to summarize such an enormous life?

Jo Mora, Renaissance Man of the West, is the phrase I come upon most, that and Jo Mora, cowboy cartographer. This man is also a writer, a painter, illustrator and muralist, sculptor and photographer, and a cartoonist and comic artist, which will come as no surprise to fans of his cartes. He even designs a 1925 half dollar coin for the US Mint commemorating the state of California’s 75th anniversary.

During an insurgency in 1877, the Mora family flees Uruguay. Jo is a year old at the time; his brother Luis is three. They go first to Barcelona, finally arriving in the US in 1880, where they settle in the greater New York area. Both boys are already deep into the making of art; at the ages of eight and ten respectively, they consider creating a twenty- foot mural of the Iroquois Indian wars, though there’s no record of them actually doing so.

Their father Domingo is an accomplished sculptor. Jo and Luis attend primary school in Perth Amboy and grammar school in Allston, Massachusetts. At 15, Jo completes the Boston Latin School, and graduates from the Pingry Academy in Elizabeth, New Jersey in 1894. Both study sculpture under their father, who teaches art in Perth Amboy, Boston and New York City.

By 1895 Jo’s studying at the Art Students League, the Chase School of Art in New York and the Cowles Art School in Boston – and, at 19, has already produced poster murals for the Clermont Skating Rink in Brooklyn. Returning to Boston, Jo goes to work first for the Boston Traveler and then becomes a member of the Boston Herald art staff for the next four years, illustrating articles plus various books.

In 1903, he takes a trip west, working as a cowpuncher on a ranch in Solvang near the Mission Santa Ines, which inspires him to travel the entire Camino Real and sketch the Missions he saw. In 1904 he travels by mule-drawn wagon across Yosemite, Kings Canyon, Sequoia National Park and the Mojave Desert to Needles on his way to the Hopi mesas in Arizona. In Arizona, he is permitted to witness the Hopi Snake Dance, then sets to both photographing and producing detailed artwork of the ceremonies of the Hopi and Navaho tribes he’s gotten to know over two years of living among them.

Upon settling back in California he will marry Grace Needham, of San Jose, CA., at the Mission San Gabriel in 1907 and start to raise his soon to be born children Jo, Jr. and patty.

Mora publishes twelve of his iconic cartes over his lifetime. The first, Monterey Peninsula, his second, The 17 Mile Drive, and the first version of California all come out in 1927. San Diego appears in 1928. The three national parks, Yosemite, Yellowstone and Grand Canyon, all come out in 1931. Grace Line Fleet to the Old Spanish Main and Evolution of the Cowboy: Levi’s Round-Up of Cowboy Lore are published in 1933; the latter is a poster rather than a map, as is his Indians of North America in 1936. Carmel-by- the-Sea and Los Angeles are both issued in 1942. A second, smaller version of California will be his last, in 1945. An unfinished pencil rendering of a map of Catalina is found after his death.

But cartes are hardly all Jo Mora does. This man’s work is as varied as it is prolific. Starting out collaborating with his father, he finds himself working on huge architectural projects. In Los Angeles, at least four buildings include his work, including the Palace Theatre; he is assisting his father on four sculpted allegorical panels representing song, dance, music and drama when his father dies while this commission is still in progress. Mora completes it.

In San Jose, Mora creates two heroic male sphinx figures for the Scottish Rite Temple [today the San Jose Athletic Club], plus bas-reliefs over its entrance and throughout the building. He provides decorative elements for the Monterey County Courthouse, as well as numerous detailed panels for the King City High School auditorium. In Carmel, he sculpts Father Junipero Serra’s cenotaph, an altar and a cross.

He creates pediments and bas-relief panels for four buildings in San Francisco; his Miguel de Cervantes looks down on his Don Quixote and Sancho Panza in the Golden Gate Park. A marble bench with sculpted bears by Mora sits in front of the Sather Tower on the UC Berkeley campus. He creates the main entrance doorway and sculptures of bears to support fountains for the Union Wool Building in Boston. He designs a number of homes himself.

Architectural work is just one facet of Mora’s endless creativity. He designs everything from ordinary scale sculptures, many of cowboys breaking broncs, to “heroic” (larger than life) sculptures, to bronze plaques and vast murals. He creates fifteen or more dioramas, thirteen for the Will Rogers Memorial in Claremore, Oklahoma.

One diorama, exhibited at the California State Building at the 1939 Golden Gate International Exposition, is a one-hundred-foot-long depiction of the 1769 Portolá Expedition. Tragically, it is destroyed in a fire six months after the opening of the fair.

Mora illustrates countless books, both his own and for those of others. He designs bookends, trophies, coins and scrip certificates for use in Carmel during the Depression. He sculpts his son Jo Jr. at three years of age, reata in hand, breaking a hobby horse."

Nancy's book is an annotated look at all of the details seen on Jo Mora's carte of Los Angeles. To purchase the book:

Richard S. Breiman, MD, retired in October 2011 after 10 years of service to the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging. Breiman received his medical degree from UCSF in 1973. He completed a Diagnostic Radiology residency at Stanford University in 1979, followed by CT and Ultrasound fellowships, also at Stanford University, in 1976 and 1978. From 1979-1981, Breiman was an assistant professor of radiology at Duke University, Durham, North Carolina, and a Clinical Instructor of Radiology at UC Berkeley from 1982-1994. Concurrently he served as volunteer clinical faculty at UCSF from 1984-1987. He worked in private practice as a radiologist and partner at Pacific Imaging Consultants from 1989-2001. He was appointed assistant clinical professor in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging in July 2001, became an associate clinical professor in 2003, and was promoted to a clinical professor in 2007. He served as director of the Henry I. Goldberg Center for Advanced Imaging Education, and more recently on the faculty at San Francisco General Hospital. “Dr. Breiman joined the Radiology faculty here at SFGH at a time of need for our department. His willingness to cover several niches helped us navigate through a rocky period and to emerge as strong as ever,” said Mark Wilson, MD, chief of Radiology at SFGH. ”His warm demeanor, consummate professionalism, and dedication to radiology education will be greatly missed at SFGH.” Breiman will return to the department part-time on a recall appointment to provide clinical coverage at the UCSF Ambulatory Care Center.

There's an ornate drawing of the German Emperor, a dozen beautiful celestial maps, a drawing of a wooden world clock with a map in its center, a drawing of fortress types, a drawing of a sailing warship and its parts, a drawing of whale types and whaling business activities, a glorious world map (of which we have a copy in our living room), incredible cartouches throughout, beautiful city maps of Stockholm, Venice, Vienna, Frankfurt and Constantinople, and several maps where California is depicted as an island. Also noteworthy is that several parts of the world remain undiscovered and unmapped, including Australia and New Zealand and the area from California up to the arctic.

In 2003, he established Webster Pacific, a ten-person consulting firm which helps companies make better decisions using data, analytics, geospatial analytics and a lot of common sense and little a bit of wisdom. Most importantly, he is married to Eleanor Bigelow, with whom he has raised two children. Tom lives in San Francisco in an 1887 Victorian, which, after his wife and children, has been the recipient of all of his earnings.

182George Willdey's Composite World Atlas 1732

A world atlas by George Willdey.

Maps from David Rumsey.

Wikipedia - "George Willdey (1676–1737) was a British engraver and optical instrument maker. Willdey made engravings for a number of mapmakers. His shop sold maps, optical instruments, toys, china, glass, and earthenware. Willdey engraved maps for Charles Price (with whom he partnered 1710-1713), Emanuel Bowen, Christopher Saxton, and Thomas Jeffreys, among many others. Willdey was born in Staffordshire in 1676. He was apprenticed to John Yarwell and belonged to the trade guild Worshipful Company of Spectacle Makers. Throughout his career he took on a number of apprentices, notably including many female apprentices which was unusual for the time."

186Arbuckle's World Atlas - 1889

I bought this 1889 atlas on eBay in 2019 and, just recently, I scanned it and uploaded it to The Digital Gallery. I love the pictorial images of the countries; they convey so much more than boundaries and so much more than text. I also love that the atlas was made by a coffee company, marketing itself. The Arbuckle Coffee Company was an innovative marketer, the #2 coffee company in its day and the brand still exists today. Tom Paper 11/16/2021

18:27:26 From John Docktor to Everyone:

Is there anything on the verso?

18:31:11 From Ana Soto-Canino to Everyone:

Laurence, it would be an interesting project for a secondary school student to determine which graphic devices found in this artifact might still be found in current rail maps, say, even the London underground rail system, or the NYC subway. The exploration would deal with something thus: To what extent did these artifacts of the 1800s manage to “tool” our 20th century cartographic vocabulary for the display of railway lines.

18:31:58 From Laurence Penney to Everyone:

18:51:09 From Laurence Penney to Everyone:

Do you think Plato was aware of the arrondissements of Paris, which are arranged in a spiral?

18:51:12 From Ana Soto-Canino to Everyone:

Mr. Hoffeld, thank you. Lovely chart. Just yesterday I learnt of Basil Brown’s endeavors regarding not just archaeological efforts in the late 1930s at Sutton Hoo, but also in gathering data for astronomical charts, and while also trying to make them accessible “to the common man” , as he once supposedly said. Your star chart came to me just in time to literally add color to my findings about B. Brown, all new to me.

18:52:17 From Mark Mavroudis to Everyone:

Hello everyone. I just wanted to say how much I am enjoying these fascinating presentations. Not a collector or researching - just someone who enjoys looking at maps.

18:54:21 From Tom Paper to Everyone:

Peter - thank you for a great presentation...I wonder if eminent domain is displayed somehow in the map

18:54:46 From Tom Paper to Everyone:

Marc - thank you for a great presentation...colors are fantastic

18:54:49 From Laurence Penney to Everyone:

Thanks Ana! Indeed it would be really productive to see what students could do with the iconography and overall idea applied to modern data, maybe different modes of travel.

18:55:50 From Laurence Penney to Everyone:

Ana: Also worth noting is that the first general maps that included railways were the old plates re-engraved with the new lines, so they had to be distinct from roads, rivers & boundaries.

18:56:51 From Laurence Penney to Everyone:

Tom: good to hear, I’d love to hear what you discover, ponder or conclude!

1951777: Decisive Year of The American Revolution

The Digital Gallery is pleased to present the second exhibit in the American Revolution Series. Previously, in Exhibit 40, "George Washington and The American Revolution, 1775-1776," we displayed, through historic maps and iconic images, the course of the first two years of the war. The cause of American Independence went from elation when the American militia forced the British to retreat from Concord, Massachusetts (April 1775), to horror at the carnage at Bunker Hill (June 1775), and back to victory when the British Army was forced to evacuate Boston (March 1776). But a huge British force returned to New York (July 1776) and defeated General George Washington's army in a series of battles through late summer and autumn. The American cause was on the brink of disaster (December 1776) when Washington decided upon a bold stroke of war to save the American Revolution--and the future of the United States.

Come with us now as we jump back to catch up with the momentous story of the Campaign of 1777 and why it proved to be the Decisive Year of the American Revolution.

230Mapmaking in Islamicate Societies

.Mapmaking in Islamic Societies


Hundreds of maps survive mostly in manuscripts drawn and colored by unknown people over a millennium in numerous different societies that were ruled mostly by men but also occasionally by women adhering to different Islamic denominations. The manuscripts with maps are often undated and provide rarely information about the place of production. How then can we know when and where or by what kind of person they were made? Colors, styles of script, also called calligraphy, the type of paper and occasionally of card board, traces of instruments or lack of them, content features of the maps, and notes on cover or end pages, at the margins, or on other parts of the manuscript and the langue/s used in the manuscript can help us identifying at least the period, region, culture or disciplinary context of the people who drew the maps – scribes, painters and other craftsmen, scholars, captains, soldiers, court historians and possibly other professionals and amateurs.

This exhibit is a brief introduction into some of the main domains where maps were used as illustrations of texts, as carriers of independent information, as educational tools, or as witnesses of cross-cultural contacts and interests.

Generally, four classes of maps are recognized:

1. maps derived in some way or the other from Ptolemy's Geography

2. maps connected somehow with pre-Islamic Iranian political geography

3. maps reflecting connections with cartographic developments in European Christian cultures

4. narrative maps.

This classification is admittedly too narrow to do justice to the many different specimens that survive in many libraries and museums across the globe. It somehow also hides what is in my view the main, unifying feature of almost all maps from Islamic societies that I have seen: the multiplicity of their cultural features. The only class that does not bring together elements from at least two other classes is number 4.

In addition to the maps that can be included into one of the four classes there are exceptional specimens which differ from any of the standards represented by them.

In this introduction, we show a few examples of each of the four classes and of the exceptions.

Based on the work of Sonja Brentjes.

231Vaugondy Atlas - 1845

I bought this atlas in late 2019 for $125 on eBay and we digitized it in December 2021. Published in 1845, it explains geographically, with political boundaries, how the world was understood in classical times and then re-looks at the world is understood in 1845. I was especially struck by the drawings (p6) of the globes that represented both the Copernican and Ptolemaic systems, the map of the voyages of discovery (p23), the map of Africa (p38) where vast amounts are still undiscovered (it would be 26 years before Stanley found Livingston) and 22 years before the Suez Canal was built. The map of North America (p39) is remarkably accurate and the only unknown places are in the arctic where, in the same year this atlas was published, 1845, the famous and ill-fated Franklin expedition was just being launched.
