Description

Important early thematic mapping atlas produced as a joint effort of Reverend Thomas Milner and Augustus Petermann.

Thematic maps showing the meteorology, hydrography, zoology, botany, ethnography, and other aspects of the physical world.

The maps trace interesting phenomena such as the extent of the waves from the 1775 Lisbon earthquake.

Altogether an interesting and different 19th-century atlas.
