Issued Hildburghausen, Germany c. 1850-52 by Meyer.
Uncommon and nice small-format mid-19th century engraved map with original outline hand-color.
Sheet is gently uniformly age toned with some light trivial spotting (mostly to margins), perhaps small minor paper flaws, but to our eyes and for most people, an entirely acceptable and nice looking example of this antique map.
Sheet measures c. 12" x 9 3/4".
Engraved area measures c. 9 3/4" x 7 1/4".
