Description:

 Rare Facius Brothers map of Eastern Europe, including Poland, Lithuania, Russia and Ukraine, published in Bonn.

This is the first edition of the map, which was re-issued the following year as a 4-sheet map of the Theater of War in the region, published by Jager.  The second edition includes a number of revisions to this sheet, which are not on the first, including a change to the title and geographical information.  The most obvious of the changes is an annotation to the west of the Bug River, below Nouvelle Servie and a second annotation slightly below and the the right of the first, an annotation near the town of Kanenoiston on the lower Dniepr River and one above the Tartar limits, none of which appear on the first edition.  To view the second edition, click here: http://www.raremaps.com/gallery/enlarge/24415 

The Facius brothers were born in Regensburg and trained as engravers in Brussells.  By 1776, there work had become well respected and they moved to London, at the request of John Boydell, with whom they worked for a number of years as engravers.  As the map was produced when they were still quite young and because they did so few maps, the map is also interesting as a rare example of their work in cartographic material.
