Description

Scare early map of Alaska by Peterman, from one of his geographical reports. For a number of years in the mid to late 19th Century, Petermann's Geographische Mittheilungen provided a compilation of contemporary explorations of the various nations throughout the world, often providing the earliest commercially available maps of the newly explored regions. This map of Alaska and the Northwest surpasses contemporary atlas maps in providing the most up to date regional information, including Russian Forts, elevations of moutains and lots of additonal information from Russian, American and British Sources, most recently W.H. Dall's Coast Survey work.
