Summertime – Travelling Season
A set of European state and provincial maps by Friedrich Wilhelm Streit (Ronneburg, Thuringia, 1772 – Berlin 1839) in steel engraving of several engravers colored in outline after – mostly – Streit’s own drawings, those of his sons, W. v. Möllendorf and occasionally others in portrait and oblong formats of c. 8¼-9 × 10⅞-11⅜ in (21-23 × 27.5-29 cm) at Natorff & Co., Berlin. 1833/37. Besides of some partial maps intended as a whole inscribed throughout and with the signatures of Streit and, if applicable, others in the plates, those of the engravers only in few cases though.
The value of these maps based on them being worked like general maps with their multitude of symbols as, generally,
natural & “artificial” streets, (express) postal routes & their stations ,
shipping , harbors & anchor places ,
channels , dams , crossings ,
frequently (arch) episcopal sees , universities & highschools , occasional freemasonry lodges , stud farms , forester’s houses & forest superintendent offices .
As relatively young maps they round off cartographically. Of additional charme for the collector that they are from the early days of modern surveying which was basically a matter of the second half of the 19th century. One of the leading pioneers was Streit whose at least 249-sheet map Charte von Teutschland published since 1807 as the first all-German general map forms the century edition of an atlas of Germany par excellence. – The scales of the maps here differing. – Partly not absolutely fresh. – Titles in German.
Streit, after taking part in the Napoleonic wars 1797-1805 as officer in first Hanoverian, then Austrian services, became director of von Liechtenstern’s geographic office in Vienna and two years later assistant at Friedrich Justin Bertuch’s Geographic Institute in Weimar. Meanwhile professor for mathematics at the college in Hildburghausen, Streit joined Prussian service as captain of the artillery, retiring 1832 as major to become co-editor of the Berliner politische Wochenblatt (Berlin Political Weekly) – “a well and wittily written, consequently executed paper … for Berlin … the first paper which really deserves the name of a political one” (Geiger, Berlin 1688-1840, 2nd ed. Berlin 1895, pp. 553 ff., quoted from Theodor Fontane, Werke, Schriften und Briefe. Ed. by Walter Keitel & Helmuth Nürnberger. 3rd ed. 1995, pp. 1202 ff.) – founded by Karl Ernst Jahrcke the year before.
