This is a lovely 1849 map of European Turkey by S. A. Mitchell. This map, made when the Ottoman Empire controlled much of the region, covers what is today Turkey, Greece, Macedonia Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia and Albania. Ottoman provinces are color coded and numbered. 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.
