Description


This is a scarce separate-issue 1826 map of European Turkey by C. F. Weiland. It covers Greece and the Balkans from Romania to Crete and includes the modern day nations of Greece, Macedonia, Albania, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Moldova. It depicts the European lands claimed by the Ottoman Empire in the early 19th century. Various important cities, rivers, lakes, islands, mountains and other topographic features.

As this map was being drawn, the Greek people were in the midst of a bloody war for independence against their Ottoman Turkish overlords. With the help their European allies in Russia, United Kingdom, and France, the Greek revolutionaries finally threw off the Ottoman yolk in 1832.

This map was created by C. F. Weiland and published by the Weimar Geographical Institute.

Carl Ferdinand Weiland (1782 - 1847) was a German cartographer active with the Weimar Geographisches Institut, where he headed up map and globe production, in early and middle part of the 19th century. Weiland was a trained as a military cartographer who, with his career at the Geographisches Institut, move into the private market. Among his other work, Weiland issued a German edition of Carey and Lea's American Atlas.

The Geographischen Isntitutes Weimar (fl. 1804 - c. 1903) was a German map and globe publishing house and geographical research institute based in Weimar. The organization primarily focused on republishing and improving upon the works of earlier cartographers, including Kitchin, Jefferys, Carey, and others. In general, its publications are known for their fine engraving, attention to detail, historical accuracy, and overall high quality. The firm was founded in 1804 by Friedrich Justin Bertuch (???? - c. 1845) and, on his death, passed to his son Robert Froreip (???? - 1855), then to Louis Denicks of Luneberg, then in 1859 to Voigt & G√ľnther, in 1883 to F. Arnd, from 1890 - 1893 to Julius Kettler, and in 1903 to Max Wedekind. During the institute's height in the early 19th century, most of its cartographic publication was overseen by Carl Ferdinand Weiland (1782 - 1847). The firm also employed the cartographers Franz Xaver von Zach, Adam Christian Gaspari, Heinrich Kiepert, Karl and Adolf Graef, Julius Kettler, Carl Riemer and Karl Christian Bruhns.
