A fine atlas map of Europe as divided up by the Congress of Vienna, 1815, at the close of the Napoleonic Wars. An article surrounding the map is titled, 'Most Remarkable Events Battles, And Treaties Between The French And The Different Powers of Europe. From 1792 Up To 1815.' The Congress of Vienna was a conference of ambassadors of European states held in Vienna from September 1814 to June 1815. Its objective was to settle the many issues arising from the French Revolutionary Wars, the Napoleonic Wars, and the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire. Although representatives from all the states which had participated in the wars were invited, the principal negotiations were conducted by the 'Big Four' (Britain, Russia, Prussia, and Austria) and, later on, royalist France. Published as part of 'the Second Edition of Le Sage's Historical Atlas', by J. Wauthier, 1817.
