Description

A rare German pocket map of the Charleston Area, showing both geographical and topographical detail. Augustus Petermann was one of the leading publishers of maps and contemporary travel and exploration accounts. This map was published at the beginning of the Civil War, along with several other regional American maps, to meet the demand for information in Germany about the American Civil War. The use of a printed cover on the verso of one of the panels of the map is a very rare feature in American maps. A good example, with some point splits and fold splits. Only the 2nd example we have seen in the past 12 years. A rare and interesting Civil War map.
