A very interesting and detailed large 19th century worldwide map, showing the regions affected by earthquakes and volcanoes, which was drawn by A. Petermann, engraved by W. & A. K. Johnston and published in The Physical Atlas of Natural Phenomena (Edinburgh: W. & A. K. Johnston and Cowan & Co. Glasgow: James Lumsden & Son, 1848). Along with a general world map, there are insets of Iceland, the North Island of New Zealand, the Canaries, the Hawaiian Islands, the Greek Islands, Lower Italy, the East Indies and Central / South America with the West Indies. Two attractive vignette views depict the volcanoes, 'Jorulla' in Mexico and 'Tankuban Prahu' [Tangkuban Perahu] in Java.
