Description

Very scarce regional map of Poland and Lithuania.

Shows rivers, roads, towns, castles, forests, lakes and a host of other details.

South of the Bug River, the cities of Wotiw, Glogau, Breslau, Neysse, Kosel and Glatz are all marked with the Star of David, as is Zikzlaky and Kiev in the south and Konigberg in the north and Wilna (Vilna) in the center of the map. We would presume that this was an indication of a large Jewish population in these cities.

From Von Reilly's exceedingly scarce Grosser Deutscher Atlas. Von Reilley and Schraembl led a revival of map making in Vienna in the late 18th century which included this and several other sought after works.
