Description


This is a scarce separate-issue 1828 map of North America and South America by C. F. Weiland. It covers the entire western hemisphere in its entirety from the Arctic south to Cape Horn, including the West Indies and the Falkland and South Shetland Islands. Various important cities, rivers, lakes, islands, mountains and other topographic features.

This map predates the Mexican American War consequently most of California, New Mexico, and Texas are Spanish Territory. The Pacific coast of the United States is here identified as ‘New Albion’, a name given to the region by Sir Francis Drake, after he explored it and claimed it for England in 1579.

The Spanish colonies in South America won their independence in 1823 led by Simon Bolivar of Venezuela and Jose de San Martin of Argentina. In Brazil, Dom Pedro I became first emperor after proclaiming the country's independence in 1822.

This map was created by C. F. Weiland and published by the Weimar Geographical Institute.

Among his other work, Weiland issued a German edition of Carey and Lea's American Atlas.

The Geographischen Isntitutes Weimar (fl. 1804 - c. 1903) was a German map and globe publishing house and geographical research institute based in Weimar. The organization primarily focused on republishing and improving upon the works of earlier cartographers, including Kitchin, Jefferys, Carey, and others. In general, its publications are known for their fine engraving, attention to detail, historical accuracy, and overall high quality. The firm was founded in 1804 by Friedrich Justin Bertuch (???? - c. 1845) and, on his death, passed to his son Robert Froreip (???? - 1855), then to Louis Denicks of Luneberg, then in 1859 to Voigt & Günther, in 1883 to F. Arnd, from 1890 - 1893 to Julius Kettler, and in 1903 to Max Wedekind. During the institute's height in the early 19th century, most of its cartographic publication was overseen by Carl Ferdinand Weiland (1782 - 1847). The firm also employed the cartographers Franz Xaver von Zach, Adam Christian Gaspari, Heinrich Kiepert, Karl and Adolf Graef, Julius Kettler, Carl Riemer and Karl Christian Bruhns.
