[Geographic + Historic Atlas] Justus Perthes

Schul-Atlas der alten welt nach d´Anville, Mannert (...) 1841 [and] Schül-Atlas über alle theile der erde nach dem neuesten zustande und über das weltgebäude nach Stieler´s Hand-Atlas verkleinert 1842

Gotha, bei Justus Perthes. Oblong 24 x 30 cm. 2 atlases in one volume. Schul atlas der alten welt: title + 14 pp. + 15 maps. Schül-Atlas über alle theile der erde: title + 27 maps + 3 supplement maps which are not listed on the contents page (they are: Vorder Asien, Physische karte von Asia and Physische karte von Europa). The maps in both atlases are engraved and hand coloured in outline. Both atlases are complete.

Half calf. Marbled board papers. Name inscription at the front fly leaf and at the title of Schul-Atlas der alten welt. Some wear to the binding. A short tear at the top of the spine. Bumped corners. Interior in great condition, almost perfect.

A fine early example of Stieler´s School Atlas in excellent condition as well as a beautiful copy of Justus Perthes historic atlas with explanatory text. Stielers School Atlas was published throughout the 19th century in numerous editions, but few have survived since they were used by students. Even fewer have survived in such great condition such as this one. The same thing is true for the historic atlas. Here we have a convenient bundle of two atalses in one volume covering both historic geography and the modern, mid 19th century, geography.
