Text from the curator:

The exhibition brings together works by German geographer and cartographer Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724) and works edited during 18th c., inspired by his creation. Homann acquired renown as creator of numerous maps and atlases but also for being his own editor and publisher.
The exhibition presents three atlases: the exceptional Spherarum Artificialum of more than 180 maps and depictions of cities all over the world (Samul von Brukenthal collection), Atlas novus terrarium of 50 maps (Baron’s collection) and Atlas methodicvs for youth (printed in Nuremberg, in 1777).
The exhibition also presents various maps of Africa and the two Americas and other, made by Homann or reproduced by Homanniani Heredes after his death.
