Summary

  • Justus Perthes was a prominent German cartographic publishing firm founded in 1785 by Johann Georg Justus Perthes (1749--1816) and operated by his descendants into the 20th century. Based in Gotha, the firm published the work of such prominent cartographers as August Heinrich Petermann (1822-78). This print shows three building views of the Justus Perthes Geographisches Anstalt (Geographic Institute) that was part of the firm and directed for a time by Petermann. The illustrations at the bottom show the process used in the creation and printing of Justus Perthes maps. This print also appeared in a small volume published by the firm entitled Wie eine Schulwandkarte entsteht: eine Führung durch die lithographischen Werkstätten von Justus Perthes Geographischer Anstalt (How a school wall map is created: A guide to the lithographic workshops of the Justus Perthes' Geographic Institute), which also contained a catalog of maps for schools sold by the firm. The book is by Doctor Hermann Haack (1872--1966), a leading German cartographer and friend of the Perthes family, who worked for many years at the geographical institute. In 1912 he founded the German Association of School Geographers.
