recent arrival
A finely engraved and detailed physical showing a double hemisphere with natural features emphasised. Petermann was one of the leading thematic mapmakers of the period often working closely with London publishers and, in Edinburgh, with W & A.K. Johnston and Bartholemews. The lower margin of the map contains a wealth of information with a table of mountain heights, the snow line around the globe, a coloured key to coral reefs and areas of dominant vegetation, and a further small double hemisphere dividing the world into spheres of predominantly land and water coverage. Minor centrefold reinforcement.
