Large folding map of French and Swiss Alps. Hölzels' masterpiece of cartography, edited by Vincent von Haardt.

Eduard Hölzel opened in 1844 a bookstore in Olomouc (now Olomouc in the Czech Republic) and immediately began publishing. In addition to the newspaper "Die neue Zeit" he published a number of writings and art works. This included u. a. "Album von Böhmen und Mähren" with over 100 city views and lithographs.
After Eduard Hölzel had opened a number of branch bookstores in Moravia, he relocated in 1861 the focus of his work to Vienna, where he founded a Geographical Institute and a publishing bookstore, which offered increased material for the geographical education in schools.
In the same year, under the direction of the school geographer and cartographic self-taught Blasius Kozenn his "Geographischer Schul-Atlas für die Gymnasien, Real- und Handelsschulen" appeared.

Eduard Hölzels son Hugo continued the geographic-scientific publishing tradition and published outstanding travel works such as "Reisen in Afrika", "An Asiens Küsten und Fürstenhöfen" or "Vom Newastrand nach Samarkand".
In 1887 he published "Reisen in Afrika", "An Asiens Küsten und Fürstenhöfen" oder "Vom Newastrand nach Samarkand".

A masterpiece of cartography was also this "Wandkarte der Alpen"." edited by Vincent von Haardt. ¤
