Lithograph printed in color, 26” x 33-3/4”. A couple of splits and minor pinholes at old folds, overall nice condition.

DATE:

Berlin [1875]

DESCRIPTION:

Published shortly after Berlin became the capital of a united Germany, this map contains a wealth of information about Berlin and its environs at an early stage of the city’s development. Published specifically as a hiking map, it includes an amazingly detailed depiction of the region’s roads, paths, trails, forests, and waterways. These, as well as the dozens of small villages that are laid down, were subsequently swallowed up by the city’s monstrous growth. The map extends as far as Potsdam to the southwest, and for comparable distances in other directions. Every street in Berlin is laid down, as well as those in all the other towns and villages that are shown.
