Notes

This strikingly modern plan of Kassel was published by the German Theobold Fischer in around 1850. The plan is printed in six colours. The buildings shown in white relief, with major public buildings highlighted in maroon. Each district is marked out in vivid colour and marked by roman numerals.

Rare. We are only able to trace one institutional example, that in the HLB Fulda Library in Germany.
