Hungary & Transilvania Antique Map by R. Wilkinson c1794

by Wilkinson, Robert

Fine Antique Map of Hungary & Transylvania drawn from the latest authorities, by Robert Wilkinson circa 1794.

Original copperplate-engraved map with fine contemporary hand-colour (from the time of publication). Published in London circa 1794 for Robert Wilkinson's "The General Atlas of the World". Most of Wilkinson's maps were updates of the plates that previously belonged to English map publisher John Bowles. (Wilkinson acquired his library of engraved copperplates after Bowles died in 1779.) Robert Wilkinson flourished as a map maker and atlas publisher between 1768 and 1825, and his popular atlas was reissued in 1802, 1809, and later until his death in 1825. His publishing house was at No.58, Cornhill, London from 1792 to 1816, and then at 125 Fenchurch Street, London until 1823. 

The paper is slightly discoloured, as is to be expected considering its age. It has wide borders as published. Approximate size as published is 30 x 24cm (12 x 9.5 inches) This map has been scanned at 300dpi but it has very fine detail.
