“EUROPE” Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell, c. 1847. Engraved map with original hand-coloring. (Image: 12 x 15’’)
This very detailed map depicts Europe with countries named and in contrasting colors. Topographical features are shown with numerous mountains, cities, islands and waterways identified.
The inset at the top provides a key to the large “Germanic Confederation” and “Italy”. A very attractive view of Europe as it was known in the mid-19th century.
