From the “Meyer’s Neuester Zeitungs Atlas” published by Bibliographischen Instituts in Hildburghausen in 1849-52.

Planiglobii Terrestris cum Utroq Hemisphaerio Caelesti

One of the most decorative eighteenth century world maps. This J.B. Homann’s double hemisphere map of the world is richly embellished with celestial models of the northern and southern hemispheres and other natural phenomena such as waterspouts, a rainbow, earthquakes, and the Mt. Etna in Sicily erupting. Wind heads occupy the starry heavens, and two cherubs hold the title banner aloft. The map includes many famous cartographic inaccuracies with an unusually elongated northwest coastline in North America, labeled Terra Esonis. It also shows an incomplete Australia, although with place names and notes of the early discoverers included. The east coast of New Zealand is shown, along with the Tracts of Tasman’s 1642 voyage and Magellan’s Voyage. The detail in Southeast Asia is very interesting for the period, as is the treatment of Japan. Interesting text panels at bottom describe the natural phenomena.

The Conquest of Space – La Conquista dello Spazio

Colorful folded pictorial map of the solar system showing the the space exploration, created shortly after the Apollo 8 mission, the first crewed spacecraft to leave low Earth orbit and the first to reach the Moon, orbit it, and return. The map is accompanied by a second separate folded sheet describing in detail (with nice design of each ship, information about carrier missiles and space suits, etc.) the most important missions from 1957 – 1968. The very interesting and decorative map shows the trajectories of both manned and unmanned spacecraft, the path of the solar system, Moon orbit, planetary orbits, relative sizes of the planets, satellites and space crafts. Includes colored reference at the lower margin. At least three editions of this map were published, this being an example of the second. The differences between the three editions revolve around the presence of Apollo missions: the first edition was published before the Apollo program began launching missions, while the second includes Apollo 8, the third edition includes the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon.
