CZECH CARTOGRAPHY / CZECH NATIONAL REVIVAL: Politicka? a mistopisna? mapa Kra?lovstvi ceske?ho [Political and Geographical Map of the Czech Kingdom]
Jindrichuv Hradec – Tábor: K. Jansky - Prague: Bedrich Sandtner, 1872. A detailed map of the Kingdom of Bohemia by the pioneer of the modern Czech cartography Josef Erben, who influenced the geographical terminology in other Slavic countries, was made in the time of the Czech national revival. Colour lithograph, originally dissected in 32 segments and mounted on linen, in original linen binding with debossed and gilt title, 58 x 70 cm (22.8 x 27.6 inches) (minor staining, binding with light discoloration). This large highly decorative map of the kingdom of Bohemia was made entirely in Czech language in the 1870s in the time of the Czech national revival.

This is an enlarged version, with an in-set map of Prague, and updated information. Correction and new symbols have been added to the legend. A thick red line inside the borders of the Bohemian kingdom on our map, not printed in the previous version, marks the division between the German and Czech inhabited areas.
