    Johann Baptist Homann Composite Atlas

    Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724), cartographer. Superb Homann Heirs Composite Atlas.

    More Information:

    Johann Homann set up his headquarters in Nuremberg in 1702, and he (and his family) dominated Germany's map market for over a century. Homann published his first major atlas in 1707 and was soon after appointed Geographer to the Emperor. After Homann's death in 1724, the firm was continued by his son until 1730. The business was then bequeathed to his heirs with the stipulation that it conducted business under the name of Homann Heirs. The Homann family continued to produce maps until the beginning of the nineteenth century, and remained one of the most important German publishers on the Continent. This composite atlas was likely assembled circa 1750. The following is a partial list of the maps contained herein, please see the online description for the complete list: Planiglobii Terrestris cum Utroq Hemisphaerio Caelesti, Europa (1743), America, Tabula Ducatus Britanniae, Agri Parisiensis, Russiae Magnae, and many examples of the German states likely from Atlas Germanicus originally published in 1735.
