European Dominions of the Ottomans or Turkey in Europe [Folding Map].
London: J. Wyld, 1824. First Edition. Engraved folding map, outline hand coloured, with an elaborate cartouche, mounted in segments on cloth ca. 78 x 57,5 cm (23 x 30 inches) The map is housed in a period maroon gilt titled quarter straight grained morocco slip case with marbled boards.

He succeeded mapmaker William Faden and reissued many of his maps. Wyld maintained the high standard of graphic and factual excellence that had been established by his predecessor and his maps are among the finest published in the early nineteenth century (Tooley, vol. Q-Z, 415-416). This map of the Ottoman Empire's possessions in Europe includes the Balkans and Anatolia.
