Cartographer


Kellner and Company (fl. c. 1870 – 1900) was a Weimar, Germany, based publishing house active in the late 19th century. Kellner was known for its novel use of photo-lithographic printing techniques to produce high quality relief maps. This freed them from the use of a professional draughtsman and thus enabled them to issue high quality relief maps at a low price.

Condition


Very good. Dissected and mounted on linen in 18 panels. Original linen in good condition. Some foxing and former collection stamp at bottom of map.
