Description


This is a beautiful example of Johnson and Ward's 1863 map of Austria, Turkey in Europe and Greece. It covers from Italy eastward to include all of Austria, Hungary, the Balkans (Bosnia, Serbia, Albania, Croatia, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Rumania, etc.), Greece and parts of Turkey. Color coded by territory. The map identifies major roadways, cities, rivers, and various other topographical details with relief shown by hachure. Lower right quadrant offers a view of Constantinople and an inset map of Candia (Crete).

The Austrian empire, founded in 1804 by the last Holy Roman Emperor, Francis II, lasted only till 1866. It was transformed into the Austro-Hungarian Empire after Austria was defeated in the Austro-Prussian War of 1866.

This map features the strapwork style border common to Johnson's atlas work from 1860 to 1863. Published by Johnson and Ward as plate nos. 90-91 in the scarce 1863 edition of Johnson's Family Atlas.
