Clear and accurate map of early nineteenth century Austria, which at the time stretched south as far as the Gulf of Trieste and Istria on the Adriatic. Four scales at lower right, title at top left. John Cary was considered ‘the most representative, able and prolific of English cartographers’. Tooley says, ‘As an engraver he was elegant and exact with fine clear lettering and great delicacy of touch’.

Copper engraving. Original colour. Expert repairs to centrefold. Very good condition. Size: 51.5 x 46 cm.
