The famous German firm of cartographic publishers was founded by Johann Baptist Homann in 1702 in Nuremberg. In 1707 he published the “Neuer Atlas” whose success continued for many years. This fine map of Bavaria in southern Germany was issued in the first edition. It bears an elaborate ornate title cartouche.
