Théâtre Complet de la Guerre en Europe, 1855.
Apparently first and only edition, no other copy traced. Visually highly appealing map produced for the interpretation of events unfolding during the Crimean War.

Folding lithographically printed map, opening 820 1180 mm, dissected into 40 panels and mounted on linen. Map of Europe, outline colour, inset city maps of London, Paris, Vienna, St. Petersburg, Constantinople, Rome, Naples, Madrid, Lisbon, Berlin, Stockholm, and Copenhagen, two attractive hand-coloured trophies; one featuring the flags of the Allies, France, Turkey, and England, above that of Russia, the other a trophy of arms with the French flag and a banner reading “Union et Force”. Some panels beginning to lift at the edges, some creases, but no loss, a little browned, but overall very good.
