Adolf Stieler (1775 - 1836)

Stieler was a German cartographer and lawyer who worked most of his life in the Justus Perthes Geographical Institute in Gotha. His Handatlas was the leading German world atlas until the middle of the 20th century. Stieler spent much of his early youth in Gotha, where his father was the mayor. In his adolescence, he showed an interest in geography and maps. Stieler's cartographic career began with a position as a geography teacher at a girls' school in Gotha and then with Franz Xaver von Zach, the director of the Gotha Observatory. His works during this period include publishing cartographic representations of a number of von Zach's observations. From 1804, Stieler worked in the Geographical Institute of Weimar, continuing his goal of starting a geographical publishing business.

Johann Friedrich von Stulpnagel (1786 - 1865)

German cartographer whose father was a Prussian infantry captain. When the war broke out in 1812/13 , he joined the 1st Baden Infantry Regiment of Count Wilhelm von Hochberg's brigade as a lieutenant. In 1822 an ear ailment that caused almost total deafness forced him to request his departure from the army. Since he had little wealth and little income, he moved to Wandersleben and in 1823 became a draftsman in the geographic institute of Justus Perthes in Gotha . There he worked with the cartographer Adolf Stieler on the continuation and improvement of his " Handatlas over all parts of the world " , which appeared for the first time in the years 1817–1823 . On September 10, 1835, Stulpnagel was finally retired from the army and received a pension as a captain. After Adolf Stieler's death in 1836, he moved to Gotha and continued the map series of his predecessor at Perthes in association with Heinrich Berghaus and Joseph Christoph Bar.
