Summary

Ivan Kupčík:

Manuscript copy of the Apian Map of Bavaria, drawn by Dominicus Franciscus Calin (around 1661)

Cartographica Helvetica 17 (1998) 32–34

Summary:

The Bairischen Landtaflen by Philipp Apian, published in 1568, influenced the cartographic representation of the Bavarian region for many decades. Their content was constantly re-used and copied until the end of the 18th century, for instance by Peter Weinerus (1579), Georg Philipp Finkh (1663), and Wilhelm C. Buna (1745).

One more example, a wall map drawn approx. 1661 by Dominicus Franciscus Calin, was discovered in the War Archives of Munich only a few years ago. Although Calin didn't improve the content of Apian's map, such maps were very important because there was a constant lack of any major regional maps at that time.
