A very and rare hand coloured world map by the cartographer Emil von Sydow, published in 1847 by Justus Perthes. Emil von Sydow developed the color methodology for landscape features using hachures. He employed green for lowlands, brown for highlands and blue was used for drainage. At carambas on Etsy.
Paper ephemera lover. I am always looking for antique prints: maps, natural history lithographs, architectural drawings and more. I share some of them here and I sell on Etsy. www.carambasvintage.etsy.com
