Unsure? Ask an Expert!

An extremely rare first edition German account of the American Revolutionary War by Matthias Christian Sprengel. His works helped satiate the need of the German people to understand this new nation.  Two versions of this book exist with map. The map is based on a reduced version of the famous 1783 Faden map of the United States. While both versions of the book include this famous map, this smaller, rarer edition’s map is colored! It is very rare to find this work complete with map. Because of the desirability of the map itself, it has regularly been extracted from this book for map collectors.

Matthias Christian Sprengel (1746 – 1803) was a German geographer and historian. He was notably the author of works on North American history and the American Revolution.

We find this title (without the map!) selling for over $1000. The map alone is worth our asking price. Just BEAUTIFUL.

Matthias Christian Sprengel (24 August 1746, in Rostock – 7 January 1803, in Halle an der Saale) was a German geographer and historian. He was notably the author of works on North American history and the American Revolution.

He studied history at the University of Göttingen as a pupil of August Ludwig von Schlözer. In 1778 he became an associate professor, and during the following year, relocated to the University of Halle as a full professor of history. At Halle he worked closely with Johann Reinhold Forster, who in time, became Sprengel’s father-in-law.[1]

From 1800 onward, he was editor of Bibliothek der neuesten und wichtigsten Reisebeschreibungen (“Library of the latest and most important travelogues”).
