This map was originally issued by Athanasius Kircher S.J. in the year 1675. It was the first world map showing the ocean currents, the abysses in the oceans and the vulcanos of the earth. Kircher's map was rather unadorned. Zahn, a philosopher and a Premonstratensian monk at Wuerzburg, published this map in his „Mundis Mirabili" in the year 1696. Its mark of distiction was the enormously adorned title cartouche with cherubs holding a decorative florid pediment. The volcanos are shown as red and yellow flames.

Very good condition.

Here are some interesting geological copper etchings. They were published in:

„Traité sur la structure extérieure du globe ou institutions géologiques"

Author: Scipione Breislak (1750-1826)

Publisher: Jean Pierre Giegler Milano (Mailand),1822

We show the available images and list the titles. We do omit the accentuation peculiar to the French language to allow for easy reading the international computer spelling. We ask our French customers and friends for forgiveness!

All images are well printed and sharply defined. Some margins show traces of age and use, such as little repaired tears, a little smudging, possibly a little hole frayed edges and dog-ears. In general the condition is good, however. Any more serious flaws will me individually mentioned.

Page size is: is approximately 23 x 34.5 cm (9 x 13.5").

The images are all approximately 16 x 27 cm (6 .3 x 10.6").

The price for each print is $ 125.00.
