A Mountains & Rivers Rarity
Rare separately issued chart showing the Rivers and Lakes of the World, published in Munich.
The lakes and rivers of the Eastern Hemisphere are shown on the left, with lakes and rivers of the Eastern Hemisphere on the right.
Includes several smaller maps entitled Kärtchen zur Berichtigung des wahren Laufes der Ströme des Tableau mit den correspondirenden Rangs-Zahlen at the bottom.
Professor Constantin Desjardins was the author of several atlases, including Physisch-statistisch und politischer Atlas von Europa and Geographisch-historischer Atlas von Europa.
The map is very rare. We note several examples in German institutional collections and 1 example in the British Library, but no examples in the US, or offered in dealers catalogs or at auction.
This is the second example we have offered in the past 25 years.
