Charte der vereinigten Königreiche Grosbritanien und Ireland

Item Information

Title:
Charte der vereinigten Königreiche Grosbritanien und Ireland : nach den neuesten Berichtigungen und Astronomischen Ortsbesti[m]mungen entworfen auf den Sternwarte Seeberg, bey Gotha
Description:
Published by the Geographische Institut in Weimar, Germany, this map of Great Britain and Ireland shows extraordinary detail for such an early date. The coastal features, rivers, and towns were placed with a high degree of accuracy, attributed in part, as the caption says, to the "latest reports and astronomical observations." The insets identify the location of counties and provinces within England, Ireland, and Scotland. Longitude is measured east from Ferro.
