Rare and very interesting map of Central Europe, showing the region around Hungary and Romania. Published in Vienna in 1786, this map includes two insets, with one view of Belgrade and one plan of Belgrade.

The map extends in the northeast to Ukraine and Crimea, which is labeled "Nouvelle Russie" (New Russia) in the south and "Russie" in the north. Very interestingly, numerous battle sites are shown throughout, which show the growth and contraction of the Ottoman Empire. A small annotation updates the borders near Orsava to 1791.

The plate is signed "B.F. 1788", however, we have been unable to identify the maker.
