4) Des Konigreichs Dalmatien turkischer Antheil. Nro. 26 is focused on the Balkan region, showing Serbia, with parts of Bosnia and the Dalmatian coast, (11x 8.25"). The generous margins have a minor tear, well away from the map. A
5) Europe Agreeable to the Most Approved Maps & Charts is an attractive map of Europe with Iceland shown in an inset at top, by Thomas Conder, circa 1780.
