Die Europaeische Turkei.
(European Turkey- Walachia- Balkans- Romania- Bulgaria- Serbia)
Issued 1860, Gotha Germany by Perthes for Ad. Stieler.
Scarce and charming little mid-19th century antique map. Engraved with original outline hand color. Noteworthy for the early date and scarcity factor, from a small pocket sized school atlas which had a relatively small circulation and thus maps from it are only infrequently encountered today.
Sheet displays small minor signs of age, light evidence of some handling, but overall still clean and well preserved. A charming little antique map with fine patina and visual appeal.
Original fold line as issued.
Sheet measures c. 14" x 17".
Printed area measures c. 13" x 16 3/8".
