The Brocktorff Mapmakers is an exhibition showing rare broadsheets, books and various reports which were illustrated with maps and plans drawn and lithographed by the Brocktorff family in the 19th century.
The catalogue comprises a scholarly presentation of 138 maps and plans of the Brocktorff family. These are presented in the order of each family member of the Brocktorff dynasty according to their date-of-birth starting from the paterfamilias Charles Frederick de Brocktorff (1781−1850) to the youngest member Leopoldo Brocktorff (1826-86). At the end of the catalogue there is also a section of other maps which are Brocktorff-related. The maps are fully described and useful additional historical and cartographical information is also provided.
