A fine and highly detailed map of Europe, depicting the principal powers of the continent as they existed before the French Revolution which lasted from 1789 until 1799, and saw the rise to power of the French military and political leader Napoleon Bonaparte. The map is annotated in great depth throughout, with details of each country's population, size and in some cases industrial and economic advantages. The seas are as equally well described. Surrounding the map are four written articles titled; 'On Europe, Physical And Material.', 'Historical Summary Of The Principal Powers Of Europe, As They Existed Before The French Revolution.', Of The Political Systems Which Have Governed Europe', and 'Campaigns Of Charles XII, King Of Sweden'. Published as part of 'the Second Edition of Le Sage's Historical Atlas', by J. Wauthier, 1817.
