Forerunner of 150 years of cartography of the Rhine
Vopelius’ map of the Rhine was to determine the character of all subsequent maps of the Rhine valley and was used for surveying the area until, for political and military purposes, a new survey of the course was done in the 18th century.
Faithful facsimile edition of the map kept under the shelf mark HAB R 9 in the Herzog August Bibliothek, Wolfenbüttel, made in Cologne. Format: 155x55cm. 16-page academic introduction by Traudl Seifert.
Delivered in a luxurious cardboard roll.
