'EUROPE ANCIENNE.' by Chamouin c.1812
A very interesting and attractive early 19th century map, with a decorative title, of Ancient Europe which was engraved by Chamouin and published in M. Lapie's Atlas supplémentaire du Précis de la Géographie Universelle de M. Malte-Brun (Paris: Francois Buisson, 1812). The map shows the various ancient tribes of Europe before the Roman Empire including the Celts, Germans, Slavs, Latins and Greeks. Interestingly, the Scots are shown as originally inhabiting Ireland wherea, in northern Germany, we see the Angles and Saxons who would later migrate to Britain and become the English.
