Berlin.

By GERMANY - BERLIN) Henshall, J. (engraved by). D. R. Clarke (drawn by).

London.: Stanford.. No date. Ca. 1840.. Engaved map with handcolor, approximately 12 x 14 3/4 inches on sheet size 13 x 16 1/2 inches. Small chip and a few short tears to lower edge (outside map area), soft crease to upper left and right corner, narrow upper margin with part of text at upper left corner cropped and a tiny tear at right corner (outside the map image); overall very good, clean condition. In "People, Places, and Sustainability (edited by Gabriel Moser et al) it is noted that "Cities of the 19th century throughour Europe and teh US were represented in the collective social mind only through formal eyes. The Cartography of the period reflects this bias. Maps drawn and engraved int he 1830s by the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge baded in London depict European and American cities of the concurrent period as enclosed with mediaeval fortification walls, with scattered and very limited extensions beyond. The Berlin map...of 1840, on the eve of embracing all-out formal industrialization, shows barely anything outside. However, Berlin maps of the 19th century reconstructed in 1987 by order of the Berlin Senate to commemorate the 700th anniversary of the city show otherwise. In 1850 the city had grown outwards...and begun to link formerly independent villages into the continuous urban form'...The city had already outgrown its wall." .
