F. Handtke. “Karte der Vereinigten Staaten Von Nordamerika.”

Carl Flemming ran an important German publishing house in Glogau and Berlin in the middle of the nineteenth century, issuing atlases and maps like this one. The Germans were very interested in America at this period, with large numbers having emigrated to Texas in the 1840s, and more taking advantage of the opportunities of land and employment by coming to the mid-west and into the west. This map includes great detail of rivers, towns, railroads and canals, all presented with typical German precision and clarity.
