A 300 year old tourist map and guide to the countryside approx. 10 km. around the town of Trier which was founded as August Treverorum in 15 BC in honor of the Emperor Augustus. The town is attractively located among the vineyards of the Mosel Valley, close to the Luxembourg border. The city's most influential son was none other than Karl Marx, born here in 1818. The stunde is a unit of distance defined to be 4800 meters (2.983 miles), approximately the distance a person can walk in an hour. The definition is consistent with the custom everywhere of informally adopting time units as distance units, as when we say "I live 10 minutes from school." Scarce.
