Description

Franz Johann Joseph von Reilly (1766-1820), was a Viennese art and book dealer who was also a journalist and poet. He began to publish maps and atlases, in 1796 producing his Deutscher Atlas, the first world atlas produced by an Austrian. This map is a fine example of the maps from this atlas, which are quite large and with an impressive amount of clearly engraved detail. The map is utilitarian in intent, but still has a decorative appeal, with its soft coloring and stylized title cartouche.
