A fascinating pair of maps reproduced from original 18th century engravings. The original of the earlier map was made about 1766 by the English engraver Bennet, and shows major cities and towns. Both the internal and external borders of Germany are well-defined. The second map, drawn in 1780 by the French cartographer Bonne, is an example of 18th century "scientific" mapmaking, rich in detail.
