Rare German edition of Carey & Lea's map of Kentucky, attractively colored by county and showing towns, rivers, roads, forts, etc. Surrounded by text on three sides. The German edition of the Carey & Leas Atlas is by far the scarcest of the various editions of Carey & Lea American Atlas and arguably the highest engraving quality. The Weimar Geographische Instituts produced a number of remarkable maps and atlases during the first half of the 19th Century. A gorgeous example of this nearly impossible to find map.
