Maps: 1801 - 1815
1802 William Darton, Jr: "POLAND," 7 1/4 x 8 1/2 inches, from "Atlas to Walker's Geography," in four 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.
First map from trilobitesuk; second map from
1803 (Based on maps by William Faden -- see his 1799 map of Poland on this site): "Lithuania," from the Ottomon "Cedid Atlas Tercumesi" ("New Atlas
, Istanbul. Also four DETAIL images, from the first Muslim-published world atlas based upon European geographic knowledge and
cartographic methods. The US Library of Congress reports just seven extant copies in Istanbul, and it appears that there are only three others in the U.S.:
Library of Congress, the Newberry Library, and the John Carter Brown Library, the only known complete copies outside of Turkey. The Atlas is based
upon 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.

1808 John Cary maps of Poland-Lithuania from "Cary's new universal atlas, containing distinct maps of all the principal states and kingdoms throughout the World." You
will see this map ascribed, on other sites and at various map sources, to 1799, the date on the map, but the atlas from which this map was taken says it is a first edition,
and is dated 1808 on the spine. Best available information on all the editions of the atlas and dates on this map: 1808; 1811
 (see below) -- a reissue of 1808 with no map
changes other than an 1811 date appearing on some maps; 1819
(see examples on next page) -- for which a third of the maps were changed; 1824 -- with no changes in 1819
maps except for the date; 1828 -- same as 1824 except for date changes; and reissues in 1833, 1836, and 1844. The maps below were all published in 1808:
