This is a fine 1849 example of Joseph Meyer's map of the Duchy of Brunswick, Germany. It covers the historic German state from Gardelegen to Blomberg and south as far as Nordhausen. Throughout the map identifies various cities, towns, rivers and an assortment of additional topographical details. Established in 1815 by the Congress of Vienna, it would later become part of the German Confederation, the North German Confederation and later the German Empire. This map was issued in Meyer's Zeitung Atlas. Although all the maps in this atlas are not individually dated, the title page and maps were often updated while the imprint with the date was not, causing confusion to the exact date for some of the maps. Moreover some maps in the atlas were taped in at a later date as an update to the atlas. We have dated the maps in this collection to the best of our ability.
