Condition Rating

A large, highly significant and detailed map of Europe as it appeared in 1789 - on the very eve of the French revolution - something that would have a profound and lasting effect on the political future of France, but just as importantly, it began a series of dramatic changes in the systems & alliances across the continent..
The revolution marked the beginning of the end of feudalism, and the rise of nationalism in many European countries.
Geographically, Finland is split between Sweden and Russia, Germany is divided into a lot of small independent states, as is Italy. The Austria-Hungarian Empire is delineated, as is the European portion of the Ottoman Empire. A large, last glimpse of the 'old' order of Europe, as it was on the cusp of becoming much more like the Europe we know and recognize today.
