Maps: 1801 - 1815
1802 William Darton, Jr: "POLAND," 7 1/4 x 8 1/2 inches / 19.6 x 22.2 cm., from "Atlas to Walker's Geography," in five versions, and three different
fonts for "Poland." The first map lacks an explanation under the title explaining territories lost as a result of the Partitions, so was likely published in
the 1770's; the second and fourth examples show results of the Second, 1793 Partition, while the fifth map mentions the 1772, 1793 and "subsequent
partition," it depicts only the result of the first partition.

methods. The Atlas is based on
Faden's "General Atlas of the Four
Grand Quarters of the World," a
copy of which was acquired by
Mahmud Raif Efendi when he was
a private secretary at the Ottoman
embassy in London. He contributed
the introductory text to the atlas.
