Nice and interesting original antique map showing the historical distribution of the indigenous populations of North America, published in Germany in 1846. This highly detailed map by Heinrich Berghaus acts as a wealth of information regarding the history of the population of the continent.
The main map shows the traditional pre-Columbian distribution of peoples across North America, while the inset map of the lower-left shows where different European languages were then spoken on the continent when the map was published in 1846.
This map first appeared in Heinrich Berghaus's Physikalischer Atlas oder Sammlung von Karten. . ., a book that primarily served as an atlas and surveyed a number of interesting subjects.
