The Environs Of Sevastopol With The Batteries And Approaches ...
J.Wyld - London - - 46 x 65.5 - Original colour - A detailed plan of Sevastapol, its harbour and the environs. Detail extends from the River Katcha to Balaklava with Sevastopol at the centre. The positions of the troops and their fortifications and batteries are shown on the map, and a coloured key is used to identify the English, French, Turkish and Russian positions. This map is clearly marked as the fifth edition and is dated 23rd November 1854. However, COPAC lists just three examples of the map (one of the fifth edition, one of the sixth and one undeclared) and we have, thus far, been unable to locate an earlier edition identified as such. As the Siege of Sevastopol began in September 1854, it seems likely that earlier editions were improved and updated as the situation progressed. The title outside the map is given as "Siege Of Sevastopol". Minor marginal tears and light offsetting.
