£120.00

Ravenstein, A: General Post und Reise Karte von Deutschland und den Nachbarstaaten bis Paris, London, Copenhagen, Warschau & Bologna. Zweite Ausgabe. Karl Jügel [Frankfurt] 1837  2nd edtion.

Folding map, dissected, linen backed, with post roads shown in red, unfolding to a size of 34 x 29 ins [86.5 x 74 cm]. The map, in clean condition, folds down to a size of 9 x 5ins and retains its original chemise with explanations on the verso [the flap of this is detached] and there is also an 8 page new appendix to the map by J Lehnhardt which was not included with the first edition of the map. The whole fits into the original card slip case with German title to one side and French to the other: this is rather worn round the edges but holding together well. A contemporary ownership signature dated 1838 on the German title page indicates that the original owner of the map was the 3rd Marquess of Downshire [1788-1845].  A truly aristocratric grand tour map.    mar18/2
