Description
Dr. Stuckenberg had a life long interest in maps, and while living in Germany purchased the majority of his collection which consists of three 17th century atlases and over 500 separate maps from the 16th through the 19th century. A few of the cartographers represented in the collection are: Willem Jansoon Blaeu (1571-1638), Matthaus Seutter (1678-1756), and Tobias Conrad Lotter (1717-1777). Due to heavy curricular use of the maps, we began digitizing and uploading images to CONTENTdm's server in September, 2005. We currently have 364 images uploaded and will continue untill all 501 sheets maps are digitized and cataloged. The originals are housed in Special Collections at Musselman Library.
