This beautiful map is centered on the Black Sea and is an amazing Lithography. It shows many countries including Austria, Russia, Greece, Turkey (Ottoman Empire), Syria, and many more. It reaches from Vienna (North-West) to the Caspian Sea (North-East) and from Southern Italy and Greece (South - West) to Mosul in the South east. The printed paper was attached to Linen. It was released in 1877 in Madrid, Spain for subscribers of the "El imparcial". Reason for its release was to show the readers the progress of the Russo-Turkish War.

The Russo-Turkish War of 1877–78 was a conflict between the Ottoman Empire and the Eastern Orthodox coalition led by the Russian Empire and composed of several Balkan countries. Fought in the Balkans and in the Caucasus, it originated in emerging 19th-century Balkan nationalism. Additional factors included Russian hopes of recovering territorial losses suffered during the Crimean War, re-establishing itself in the Black Sea and supporting the political movement attempting to free Balkan nations from the Ottoman Empire.

Size: 25 1/2 by 20 Inches

Condition: Good condition. Before the paper was lined on the fabric in former times there must have been already a small piece missing on the lower left margin (doesn't effect the actual map) - PLEASE SEE PICTURES

Please feel free to ask any questions.
