An extremely attractive example of John Cary’s 1799 map of Franconia, Germany. Covers from Upper Saxony south to Swabia, west to the Lower Rhine and west to the Bavaria. Includes the important mediaeval and renaissance center of Nuremburg. Today Franconia is a historic district and has been consolidated with Bavaria. Highly detailed with color coding according to region. Shows forests, cities, palaces, forts, roads and rivers. All in all, one of the most interesting and attractive atlas maps Franconia to appear in first years of the 19th century. Prepared in 1799 by John Cary for issue in his magnificent 1808 New Universal Atlas .
