Fran von Reilly was a Viennese art dealer and map publisher who assembled three atlases between 1789-99. Sizes vary slightly.
1) Die Gegend um London Nro. 84 is a map of London extending to Essex, Surrey and Middlesex. The map has good detail and is decorated with a title cartouche upheld by two putti.
2) General Karte von Grossbritannien und Ireland Nro. 78 is a handsome map of the British Isles with good detail, including an inset of the Shetland Islands. It is decorated with a title cartouche styled as a tablet within a landscape.
3) Des Konigreichs England Westlicher Theil… Nro. 82 is a detailed map of western England.
4) Des Konigreichs England Sudlicher Theil… Nro. 80 shows southern England, with the tip of Cornwall shown in inset.
All maps very good with nice impressions, original color and wide margins. One or two minor spots in the maps.
