Origin: Atlas de Geographie Moderne Paris F. Schrader 1893.
M. Franz Schrader, formerly of the Ecole d’Anthropologie of Paris, one of the most eminent of French geographers. Born at Bordeaux in 1844, Schrader travelled widely in Europe in his youth and served in the Franco-German war. By the influence of Elisee Reclus he turned to geography, his interests lying in the human rather than the physical aspect. But it is for his cartographical work that Schrader was best known.
Schrader completed and published in 1893 Atlas Universal de Geographie.
