1792 – J. B. Elwe – La Pologne
Title: “La Pologne Divisee en Royaume de Pologne et les etats y partenans La Pologne Prussienne Autrichienne & Russienne”
A rare map of Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus and Ukraine, with large portions now controlled by Russia, Prussia and Austria, published by Jan Elwe in Amsterdam.
The map provides a fine look at the country at the end of the 18th century, with a large decorative cartouches. Unlike many of Elwe’s maps, this is an original work and not a re-issue of an earlier cartographer’s efforts.
