Some interesting maps
This page links to a few of the maps presented on this site
which I found interesting for some reason.
- Nordwestdeutschland 1789,
showing the 1789 territories in solid colour, and simultaneously the 1905 territories with
- Mexico u. Central-Amerika,
showing a Belgian colony in Central America, bordering Guatemala, San Salvador and Honduras.
- Tribes of Issachar & Manasseh,
showing two exclaves of the lands of Manasseh within the lands of Issachar. The text of this work
does not mention these exclaves, let alone cite evidence for their existence.
- Polacy A,and
Polacy B, showing the proportions of
Polish population in and around the state of Poland, before its frontiers had been estabished.
- Electricity, showing a man with
his hair standing on end.
third scans of the same map of
"the Battle of Blenheim or Hochstadt, fought the 13th of August 1704", using fold-down overlays to
show troop movements during the course of the battle.
- Map of the Principality of
Mindelheim as delineated in 1706, a quaint map, in English, of this tiny German principality.
