Wyld’s Military Map of the Theatre of War. James Wyld, Geographer to the Queen & H.R.H. The Prince Consort, Charing Cross East, 457 Strand & 8 Royal Exchange. Undated but 1859. An attractive map, linen backed. coloured in outline, unfolding to a size of 35 x 23½ ins, folding in 21 plates into original cloth covered boards 8½ x 5 ins with the title stamped in black. The binding is rather faded, especially on the spine and the spine paper on the hinge is torn but the map is sound and the colouring fresh. The map extends from Marseille in the west to Vienna in the east and from Regensburg in the north as far south as Florence and Ancona. a small inset map shows the whole of Italy. Although the map does not name the War in its title it is most likely that it refers to the short 2nd War of Italian Independence of 1859.     sep2/1
