New and accurate MAP of SAXONY, PART OF BRANDENBURG, SILESIA, POLAND and BOHEMIA, Exhibiting the present Seat of War between the Prussians and Austrians
A lightly coulour washed map of the historical territories of Saxony, Brandenburg, Silesia, Poland, and Bohemia around the opening of the Seven Years War, showing areas gained and lost during the previous War of the Austrian Succession, and the political maneuvering of Emperess Maria Theresa and other European leaders. Washed colouration is used to differentiate certain nation states, while for others only broken lines are used for delineation. Small vignettes are used for major cities, scattered trees are used to represent scattered woodland, and some hachuring is used to show relief. This map shows a small, historical snapshot of an important area at the beginning of a war that would change the world.
The scale bar is in English miles, and London is used to the prime meridian; the scale and coordinates were calculated from the map's scale bar and graticule.
