Johann Friedrich Endersch

Johann Friedrich Endersch was a German mapmaker and mathematician from Elbing, Prussia who in 1755 completed a beautiful map Warmia (German Ermland) titled: "Tabula Geographica Episcopatu Warmiensis In Prussia Exhibiens", which detailed all the surrounding towns. He was Royal Mathematician and the map itself was made for the Emperor (or his court).

Endersch also made a copper etching depicting a galliot or sailing ship, which had been built in his hometown Elbing in 1738 and was named Die Stadt Elbing, (The City of Elbing).
