A rare map of Western United States from T. Bromme's Hand Atlas, one of the rarer mid-19th Century German atlases.
Bromme and his brother travelled to the US in the 1820s. Bromme returned to Germany and began publishing Travel Guides in German. He borrowed heavily from Tanner and later Mitchell for some of his travel guide maps, including near identical copies of the 1834 Map of the US which accompanied Tanner's Traveller's Guide. However, some of his works, including this atlas and map produced by Woerl, are unique and highly sought after.
This map is a fabulously accurate and detailed mapping of the west, with Indian Tribes, accurate topography, extensive forts & roads, especially in Texas. A rare and highly desirable map.
