OF POLAND, Describing its Ancient Limits with
the Dismemberments..." London, 23.5 x 21
inches, in two versions. This map was originally
published with a different title by William Faden
in 1799. The map is based on the Rizzi-Zannoni
24-sheet map of 1772 that was commissioned by
the King of Poland. An inset contains a bird's-eye
plan of Warsaw flanked by tables of information
concerning the population, religion, and
languages. A color key below the title identifies
the regions of Prussia, Russia, Austria and the
Kingdom of Poland. Wyld, successor to William
Faden, maintained the high standard of graphic
and factual excellence that had been established
by his predecessor and his maps are among the
finest published in the early 19th century.
