Cartographer: Carl Flemming (fl. c. 1840 - c. 1879) was a German cartographer and map publisher active in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The firm was an early adopter of modern multicolor printing techniques, which it utilized to produce low cost attractive maps focused on the German market. The firm is also known for its children's books. Flemming died in 1878 or 1879, but his firm continued to publish well into the 20th century. Flemming was based in Glogow, a region that is currently part of modern day Poland's Lower Silesian Voivodeship. Click here for a list of rare maps by Carl Flemming.
