Article description

Original antique lithograph, hand colored in outline and wash. August Heinrich Petermann (April 18, 1822 in Bleicherode – September 25, 1878 in Gotha) was a German geographer and cartographer. He is considered one of the most important representatives of these sciences of the 19th century. Born in the center of Bleicherode as the son of an actuary, he went to high school in Nordhausen at the age of 14 and dealt with geography and drawing maps from an early age. In 1839 he entered Heinrich Berghaus' art school in Potsdam to receive scientific and technical training in cartography. In 1845 he moved to Edinburgh and in 1847 to London. In 1854 he moved from London to Gotha in Thuringia, which had an excellent scientific reputation since the work of the astronomer and geodesist Franz Xaver von Zach. A year later he founded Petermanns Geographical Communications, an important German-language journal for geography. (Wikipedia)
