Edición: 1st Edition.
A very large, detailed, and impressive engraved map, linen mounted, dissected, coloured in outline, extending when unfolded to a single sheet 173 x 140cm composed of 60 sections, edged with green cotton and fitting into its contemporary marbled paper covered chemise and then into a contemporary card case covered with marbled paper and with a red leather gilt spine achieving the appearance of a book when on the bookself. The case measures 24 x 18cm. The map and linen are in unusually clean condition; the case shows some minor wear, very acceptable for its age. The notices and details at the foot of the map are given in both French and German and most towns are named in the local language [although with some inconsistencies]. The map, on a scale of approximately English 25 miles to 1 inch [15 German miles to 1 degree], inlcudes the whole of the British Isles and extends northwards as far as to include the Shetland Isles, the Baltic Sea, Gulf of Finland and Lake Ladoga. To the South it includes the whole of Congtinental Europe, showing parts of western North Africa, the whole of Greece with Crete, most of Cyprus. To the east it extends a little way beyond Moscow and includes part of the Sea of Azoff and most of Asia Minor. Following the Napoleonic Wars and the re-drawing of boundaries at the Congress of Vienna there was a great demand for up to date maps and the Viennese cartographers were not slow to respond. Size: 173 x 140cm Unfolded. N° de ref. de la librería 007279
