Description
Daniel Friedrich Sotzmann was commissioned by Christophe Daniel Ebeling to produce a series of maps to accompany his Erdbeschreibung von Amerika. Ebeling's death in 1817 ended the project and Ebeling's map collection was purchased and given to Harvard in 1818 thus beginning the Map Collection.
