RARE GERMAN MAP OF MARYLAND BY WEILAND
WEILAND, CARL FERDINAND
Geographisch-statistische und historisch Charte von Maryland
19” x 20 3/4”. Original outline color. Some very minor soiling in margins but overall an excellent example.
Rare. From 1824 to 1829, Carl Ferdinand Weiland created a series of maps of America for the Geographical Institute of Weimar. A number of these, like this map of Maryland, were based on maps from Carey & Lea’s landmark American Atlas, published in Philadelphia in 1822. According to Phillips, the maps were “published separately,” but were occasionally collected and bound in a composite atlas.
