(CARTOGRAPHY) SOTZMANN, DANIEL FRIEDRICH
Die vereinigten staaten von Nordamerika. Nuremberg: 1804.
Hand-colored engraved German map of the United States, based on Arrowsmith and Lewis's maps of 1795 and 1796 (56 x 69 cm, sight.); matted and framed.
Engraved for Daniel Ebeling, who began compiling data for his Atlas von Nordamerika in the 1770s. The plan was for eighteen maps, sixteen of which would be separate states. Due to his death, only ten are known to have been issued and there are only a handful of complete sets known, making it a rare example of cartographic Americana.
Estimate $ 1,000-2,000
