Detailed map of present-day Bulgaria, which is carved into the Ottoman provinces of Bulgaria, Macedonia, and Romania (Rumelia), the Crimea and the Black Sea.
Prepared by François Joseph Maire (Vienna, 1738 - c.1800), who was a publisher, geographer and engineer active in Vienna.
With old collectors stamp "Dr. Hans-Peter Kosac".
The map has a title in German and French: [General Geographic Map of the Borders Between the Three Empires and the Changes Occurring from 1718 to the Present Day], and is showing the territorial junction of the Ottoman, Austrian, and Russian empires.

The map was issued to follow the Russian-Austrian-Turkish war of 1787-91, the map shows the northern Balkans and the Black Sea, from Trieste in the west to Batumi in the east, from the Dardanelles in the south to Chernivtsi in the north.

The large German title cartouche shows the imperial double-headed eagle and the Russian eagle, who is tearing apart a Turkish turban.
This is according to the text a 2nd edition, however according to Dörflinger, no copy of the first edition is known to exist.
Likely engraved by Hieronymus Benedicti, ca. 1756 - 1809, who was also engraver for F.A. Schraembl.
Reference: Dörflinger, Österreichische Karten des 18. Jahrhunderts, p. 92,97.
