The 9th International Atlas Days–
Braunschweig and Wolfenbüttel, Germany
This yearly event will again bring together collectors and all those interested in atlases published in German-speaking countries, mainly of the 19th and 20th centuries. The accent this time is on atlases produced by Westermann (Diercke Atlases) and other firms in Brunswick. On the first two days (Friday and Saturday), the programme foresees visits to publisher Westermann’s archives, to the Georg-Eckert Institute for International Schoolbook Research, and to the world-famous Herzog August Library in nearby Wolfenbüttel. On the last day (Sunday) a visit to the Brunswick Institute for Regional History is planned.
As always, presentations on the subject are foreseen, and a book and atlas fair for participants (no dealers admitted) will be held on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, at which atlases, maps, travel literature and geographical handbooks may be exchanged. Although conducted in German, participants from Belgium, the Netherlands and France regularly attend – everybody is most welcome. Please register as soon as possible, but not later than 1 March 2014 with the organiser Michael Willma who will provide full details of the programme and can assist with suggestions for accommodation.
