Pub Note: 
New edition of Berghaus' Atlas in seven parts : I: Geologie, II: Hydrographie, III: Meteorologie, IV: Erdmagnetismus, V: Pflanzenverbreitung, VI: Tierverbreitung, VII: Volkerkunde, with individual title pages dated variously 1887, 1891, and 1892, indicating that each was also published separately (see our copy of Atlas der Geologie). This is a new edition, updated by Berghaus' son, with all the maps completely redone, and still, amazingly, hand colored in a style equal to the first edition. There are actually only 74 maps, No. 7/8 are combined in one plate. Atlas is bound in half leather black cloth covered boards with "Berghaus' Physikal. Atlas." stamped in gilt on the front cover and spine.
