Italien und Palaestina
In a word, these early 19th century Germany maps could be called refined. This map is from an uncommon set of maps published by Lowenberg in 1839. These fine engravings many times focused on a specific theme (such as an empire or campaign) or included interesting historical notations. This map is a fine example of how advanced German cartography was for the time, with deftly engraved topography, clear and distinct notations, and well laid out composition, these maps included a wealth of information on a sheet. While these sheets are toned with age, it is not unusually harsh or dark, and doesn”t affect the charm of the image.
