This is an attractive 1849 map of Prussia, Germany, by Samuel Augustus Mitchell, the Senior. Prussia stretches across the map from Bas Rhin moving eastward, including Brandenburg and Sain xony, to East Prussia. In the upper right quadrant, there is an inset detailing the Environs of Berlin. Most major national and local political distinctions are outlined and defined by color coding. Political and topographical features are noted and color coded with elevation rendered by hachure. The whole is engraved and colored in Mitchell's distinctive style with green border work and vivid pastels. Mitchell published this chart in his atlas from 1846 to the late 1850s before discontinuing the series and selling his map plates to DeSilver. This map was issued in the 1849 edition of the New Universal Atlas. It was the last edition of that atlas to be published by Mitchell prior to selling the plates and rights to the atlas to Thomas Cowperthwait in 1850.
