A fine first edition example of M. Lapie's 1833 map of europe. The map covers all of europe from the Atlantic Ocean to the eastern edges of Siberia and Independent Tartary, and from the Arctic Ocean to northern Africa and Turkey. It includes Spain, Turkey in europe, european Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France, Portugal, Ireland, Great Britain, Scandinavia and Italy. Following the defeat of Napoleonic France and the Congress of Vienna, Lapie's map europe under a new peaceful balance of power, centered around the five most important powers (also referred to as the five ‘Great Powers') of the United Kingdom, France, Russia, Prussia and the Austrian empire. Alas, the ‘peace' was but an illusion and europe was anything but calm. Old rivalries festered and nationalism, liberalism, revolution (industrial and otherwise) were on the rise across europe.
This map was engraved by Armand Joseph Lallemand as plate no. 20 in the first edition of M. Lapie's important Atlas Universel. This map, like all maps from the Atlas Universel features an embossed stamp from the Lapie firm.
