Gotha: Adolf Stieler and Christian Gottlieb Reichard, 1832. Engraving by L. Thiel. Original outline color. Double-folio, 11 1/2 x 14 1/4. Faint waterstain and scattered spotting. Else, fine condition.Stieler's Hand-Atlas was one of the finest world atlases of the 19th century. Known for its maps with clear and precise topographical detail, this atlas continued to include engraved maps to the end of the century. The maps were regularly updated and this shows the impressive amount of information. All of Stieler's maps show lakes, rivers, mountains, towns and cities of all sizes, and roads all clearly presented. A most impressive map detailing North America on the eve of Texas Independence.
