Map of Norway with a vignette of mining
Map of Norway with a vignette of miningJohann Baptist Homann.
Tractus NorwegiƦ Danicus Magnam Dioceseos Aggerhusiensis...
Nuremberg, c.1729. 485 x 575mm. Original colour with additions. South-east Norway, with Christiania (Oslo). The vignette filling the height of the plate is of great interest: it is a cross-section of a mountain, cut away to demonstate various mining techniques: a watermill pumps out water, which is panned in a shallow bed; another wheel with a man inside lifts ore to be carted to a furnace to be smelted; and a hand-crank lifts a miner to the surface.
