THE 1834 ATLAS
These 46 maps, all with good colours, are much more political than the previous Atlas, and show, particularly in Europe, the huge old Austro-Hungarian Empire with the Turkish Empire butting up to it in the Balkans. Germany is still just loose a collection of States (until Unification by Chancellor Bismarck in 1871). Italy is the same loose collection. At the end are maps of "Ancient Greece, the Roman and Persian Empires and Palestine." We particularly like the double fold-out map of India, 1831, "...principally for the use of the Officers of the Army of India." Prices on Application, from £60.00.
It must be clearly understood that once images have been ordered, then put onto a CD or DVD, and the disc handed over or despatched, then every image must be paid for.
Frontispiece: (b/w) We also like the young lady, the globe and her little attendants, but more so, to the left, the ship stuck in the Arctic ice with a polar bear ambling around. (The search for the North-West Passage was intensifying, in 1834.)
