Description: Early 18th century antique map of the Asian countries. Copperplate engraved with hand coloring and title cartouce with date 1793.
The Homanns maps were combined in different atlases, (1712 – 1716) but also colored on request and sold separately.
Mapmakers: Johann Baptist Homann 1663-1724. Franz Ludwig Güssefeld (1744 - 1807) was a German cartographer.
Homann's Maior Atlas was first published in 1716 by Johann Homann, the founder of the famous Nuremberg map publishing house. It quickly became the standard gentleman's library atlas around Europe, particularly in German-speaking areas. After Johann's death in 1724 his son ran the business until his death in 1730 and then the firm became Homann Heirs, a combination of family and other geographers who pursued the commercial atlas market with considerable success.
Homann died in Nuremberg. He was succeeded by the Homann heirs company, which was in business until 1848. The company was known as "Homann Erben", "Homanniani Heredes", or "Heritiers de Homann" abroad.
