Engraved map. 550 x 640mm, 21¾ x 25¼". Left edge worn with loss in the bottom left corner, damaged.
Map of Greece, the Aegean and western Turkey, with mountains marked with hatchuring rather than contours, decorated with a title cartouche of classical ruins. A note acknowledges that 'use has been made of the Papers of M.r Stuart'. James 'Athenian' Stuart (1713–88) and Nicholas Revett (1720–1804) travelled on a Grand Tour of Italy, the Balkans & Greece between 1748-55. On their return they started work on the 'Antiquities', which was the first accurate survey of the surviving classical buildings of Athens.
