Catalogue des Cartes & Ouvrages Geographiques qui composent le Cabinet de…

Engraved calligraphic title, xii, 199 pp. 8vo, orig. cloth-backed printed slick orange boards (a little worn). Berlin: September 1805.

This is apparently the first catalogue of globes, maps, and printed geographical works issued by Schropp (1751-1817), the leading publisher and bookseller in cartographical materials in Berlin of his time. Approximately 2500 items are listed, all priced. Due to Schropp’s successes, the manufacture of globes shifted from Nuremberg to Berlin.

Very good copy. WorldCat lists no copy outside of Germany.

Price: $1,250.00
