This is a fine example of Thomas Cowperthwait and S. A. Mitchell's 1854 map of Greece. It covers the southern part of modern Greece including the Peloponnese (Morea), the Negroponte, and Karalla, as well as the Ionian Republic and the Greek Isles inclusive of Crete (Candia) via an inset in the lower left. The whole is engraved in Mitchell's distinctive style with green border work and vivid pastels. Political and topographical features are noted and color coded with elevation rendered by hachure. At the time, this part of Greece was the center of the Greek Independence movement having attained independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1821. This map was prepared by S. A. Mitchell for publication as plate no. 63 by the Philadelphia firm of Thomas Cowperthwait and Co. in the 1854 edition of Mitchell's New General Atlas. Dated and copyrighted, 'Entered according to act of Congress in the year 1850 by Thomas Cowperthwait and Co. in the Clerk's office of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.'
