POLAND, Describing its Ancient Limits with the
Dismemberments..." London, 23.5 x 21 inches, in
two versions. This map was originally published
with a different title by William Faden in 1799.
The map is based on the Rizzi-Zannoni 24-sheet
map of 1772 that was commissioned by the King
of Poland. An inset contains a bird's-eye plan of
Warsaw flanked by tables of information
concerning the population, religion, and
languages. A color key below the title identifies
the regions of Prussia, Russia, Austria and the
Kingdom of Poland. Wyld, successor to William
Faden, maintained the high standard of graphic
and factual excellence that had been established
by his predecessor and his maps are among the
finest published in the early 19th century. Both
