Antonio Zatta, Venezia, 1781
£475

A fine map showing the regions of Western Ukraine after the first division of the Polish Rzeczpospolita. In 1772, 1793 and 1795 the territories of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth were divided between the Prussian Kingdom, the Russian Empire and the Austrian monarchy. Here the map shows the territories of the modern Chernovitskaya, Ivano-Frankovskaya and part of Lwowskaya regions which were annexed by Austria, and the territories of Ternopolskaya, Lutskaya, Khmelnitskaya and Rovenskaya regions that still belong to Rzeczpospolita.
This map is part of the Atlas of Poland published by Zatta (1775-1797) - the most prominent Italian map publisher of the late 18th and early 19th century. His firm, based in Venice, produced maps that mark an important transition from 18th to 19th century cartographic styles. He updated and redefined the traditional title cartouche by replacing the mythic elements common to the 17th and 18th century with more representative images.
