DESCRIPTION:

Scarce. Early nineteenth century maps of Delaware alone are uncommon. 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 Delaware, were based on maps from Carey & Lea’s landmark American Atlas, published in Philadelphia in 1822. The map is surrounded by a descriptive text in German on Delaware. According to Phillips, the maps were “published separately,” but were occasionally collected and bound as a composite atlas with varying contents.
