Maps from the estate of the geologist Christian Keferstein (1784-1866).
The digitization and restoration of these maps was made possible by a grant from the G. & H. Murmann Stiftung in the Deutsche Stiftung Denkmalschutz. The maps are geological or orographic as well as geographic maps that Keferstein actively used on his study trips and projects. For a number of geographical maps, geognostic annotations and colorizations were added by Keferstein's hand. In some cases, Keferstein's notes are noted on the back of the maps, so the backs of the maps were also digitized.
