A first edition map depicting the Balkans and part of Greece issued in 1835 by David H. Burr. It extends northward from the Sea of Marmara to Moldavia (Moldova). Drawn when the Ottoman Empire controlled much of the region, it covers what is today Greece, Turkey, Macedonia, Albania, Bulgaria, Montenegro, and Moldova. Throughout, the map identifies various cities, towns, rivers, mountain passes and an assortment of additional topographical details. This map depicts the waning years of Ottoman hegemony in the region. The Greek Independence movement attained sovereignty for the Peloponnese in 1821. The other Grecian and Balkan states, including Serbia, Croatia, Moldavia, Wallachia, Albania, and Macedonia, remained at least nominally under Ottoman control until 1878. According to Ristow, although Burr is credited on the title page, he left this atlas incomplete. He was appointed as topographer to the U.S. Post Office, and of the siin xty-three maps finally included in this atlas, only completed eight. The rest of the maps were then completed by Illman and Pilbrow in Burr's style. This map was ‘Entered according to act of Congress in the year 1835 by Thomas Illman in the Clerk's office of the District Court for the Southern District of New York'. Published by D. S. Stone in Burr's New Universal Atlas.
