£160.00 £140.00

Grundriss der innern Haupt Und Residenzstadt WIEN mit ihren Haus Nummern, dem Glacis und dem Eingange in die nachsten Vorsttädte. Nach der neuesten Aufnahme. J Bermann [Wien] circa 1830

Folding map of the city of Vienna on thick hand laid paper, coloured, measuring 780 x 630mm unfolded [30½ x 24½ ins]. The map, which has some splits along folds  and minor edge wear[without significant loss], folds down to a size of 130 x 100 mm [4 x 5ins] and fits into a contemporary card slip case together with a 12mo Vienna Directory: Der Wegweiser in der Residenz Stadt Wien, ein fur jedermann nussliches Buch von Johan Hehl mit einem Kolorirten Plan. Neither the city plan nor the guide book has a publication date. The latest date we have seen in the text is 1829 and publication is probably not long after that. It is remarkable that this guide book and its map have remained together for almost 200 years.   mar29/4
