Product Description

 

ITALY

 

1886

 

 

This beautiful map comes from George F. Cram's Unrivaled Family Atlas of the World, published in 1886.

                                

After the fall of the Roman Empire, Italy was fragmented into numerous warring states throughout the Middle Ages, eventually becoming vassal states of France, Spain and later Austria.

Between 1859 and 1866 the Italian hero, Garibaldi led independence movements against Austria, which resulted in the establishment of the Kingdom of Italy in 1861 under the leadership of Victor Emmanuel II, the King of Sardinia.

In 1866 Italy joined with Prussia in a war against Austria. Although the war was unsuccessful, the region of Veneto was transferred from Austria to Italy in 1870. The Italian lands of Trentino and Trieste were still under the rule of Austria-Hungary and did not become part of Italy until after World War I.

 

This map is a great resource for genealogical or historical research.   The 11x 14 inch (or slightly larger) map is printed  on 80 pound archival paper and protected by our  archival quality polypropylene  sleeve.    An insert on the back of the map provides brief information about the map and a brief history of the area represented on the map.  

 

 

This map is reprinted from an original map which we own.
