Gauss & Weber

Scanning and other details

This work was published in Leipzig, by Weidmann'sche Buchhandlung, in 1840.

It consists of 36 pages of text; the maps presented here; and four double-page tables of numbers presenting the same information that is displayed in the maps.

This copy was once the property of Sir John Carruthers Beattie, the first Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Town. In 1931 he presented it to the Library of the University.

The area defined by the borders of the odd-numbered maps measures 365 by 208 mm.

Only plate 1 has any colour. The other plates appear here in monochrome (and the corresponding jpgs for sale are also in monochrome).
