A nice set of German maps, with the characteristic excellent detail and graphic depiction of topography for which these maps are known. The set includes both hemispheres, an interesting chart of the solar system, a comparison of the world's mountains, Australia with Polynesia, Europe, Russian Empire, Asia, Ottoman Empire, Greece, Italy, France, and Britain.
Some of the maps have fold separations, toning along the fold, and some scattered foxing.
