Atlas des Deutschen Reichs bearb. von Ludwig Ravenstein Available through UW Digital Collections

The German Collection Home Univ of Wisconsin
"The Atlas des Deutschen Reichs by Ludwig Ravenstein is relatively rare
in libraries of the United States. Besides Germany, the maps of this
atlas also cover the bordering portions of present-day Austria, Belgium,
the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Hungary, Lithuania, Luxembourg,
the Netherlands, Poland, the Russian Federation, Slovakia, and
Due to the large scale of its maps (1:850,000) and its thorough
gazetteer of place-names, one can locate even small towns and villages
on the maps in the Ravenstein atlas. A special feature is the marking of
the locations of churches on all of the maps as well as one special map
with an accompanying table giving statistics on the religious
denominations found throughout the German empire down to the
Regierungsbezirk and Kreis governmental units .

The German Studies Collection brings together, in digital form, primary and secondary materials relating to German Studies."
