Description


This is a hand colored 1749 Didier Robert de Vaugondy map of Lithuania. The map depicts Lithuania from its border with Prussia and Poland to its border with Russian Poland (Russie Polonoise) and from its border with Livonie to its border with Russian Poland (Russie Polonoise). The territory of Lithuania is divided into palatinates. A palatinate is a territory under the control of a count palatine, a high noble. Several different palatinates are distinguished here. Myriad towns and villages are labeled and rivers are depicted, but most are not labeled, except for the Dnieper. Forests are illustrated in profile.

This map was published by Gilles Robert de Vaugondy in his Atlas Universel, Portatif et Militaire in the 1749 edition.
