Title: The Crimea
This steel engraved map shows great detail of the Crimean Peninsula just prior to the time of the Crimean War (1853-1856), which was a battle between the Russian Empire and several European powers for influence over territories of the declining Ottoman Empire. The map includes a large inset of "Sebastopol before its investment by the Allies," and four vignettes: Sebastopol, Eupatoria, Banks of the Alma, and Balaklava Harbour. Surrounded by delicately engraved borders, the map was drawn and engraved by John Rapkin, with the beautifully engraved vignettes by H. Winkles.     (id:253202/146-571A)
