A folding post route map of Germany, The Low Countries, Poland, Switzerland, Austria and Northern Italy.
Typical for a post-route map the mail routes with distances and post offices are drawn in.
Very decorative title and dedicational cartouches in three corners. With a dedication to Karl Anselm of Thurn and Taxis. (1733 - 1805, who was the fourth Prince of Thurn and Taxis, Postmaster General of the Imperial Reichspost, and Head of the Princely House of Thurn and Taxis from 17 March 1773 until his death on 13 November 1805.
Throughout the course of the 16th century, the Taxis dynasty was entrusted as the imperial courier of the Holy Roman Empire and in the Spanish Netherlands, Spain, and Burgundy. In 1595, Leonhard I von Taxis was the empire's Postmaster General. Beginning in 1615, the office of Postmaster General of the Imperial Reichspost became hereditary under Lamoral I von Taxis. In 1650, the house was permitted with imperial authorization to rename itself from the House of Tassis (Taxis) to the House of Thurn and Taxis. As a result, it was able to maintain the Imperial Reichspost in competition with Europe's post offices.

The Thurn-und-Taxis Post was a private company and the successor to the Imperial Reichspost of the Holy Roman Empire. The 'Thurn-und-Taxis Post' was operated by the Princely House of Thurn and Taxis between 1806 and 1867. The company was headquartered in Regensburg from its creation in 1806 until 1810 when it relocated to Frankfurt am Main where it remained until 1867.
