Map of Italy and Switzerland by T. Ettling.
[London: Illustrated London News, 1860.]
Zincograph with hand colour, folded as issued. 680 x 480mm, 26¾ x 19". Repaired tears, some spotting.
A map published as a supplement to the Illustrated London News, as the Kingdom of Sardinia formally annexed the former Austrian-controlled regions of Parma, Modena, Tuscany and the 'Papal Legations' of Ferrara, Bologna, and Romagna. This was done with the support of Britain and France, which took Savoy & Nice as a reward (much to the disgust of the Italian national hero Garibaldi, a native of Nice). This was an important event in Italian Unification.

One of the 24 sections of a map of the United Sates of Nother America. A British separately issued map of the United States up to the Rockies by Theodor Ettling. Ettling was a Dutch draughtsman, engraver and lithographer who worked first in Amsterdam, later moving to London where he produced maps for some of the British papers of the mid-nineteenth century. This map was published by the Weekly Dispatch, which issued an atlas in 1858 with maps by Ettling. Ettling seems to have made quite a study of North America, issuing a number of fine examples such as this large folding map. Detail is copious and precisely delineated in a typically neat British style. Roads, towns, rivers, lakes, and topographically are all accurately and clearly rendered. The map shows the United States as it was situated at the beginning of the Civil War, includes the Bahamas and part of Cuba.
