SKU: hagafm/neth/001

A very attractive, finely engraved and rare early 19th century map of the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg which was published in Sydney Hall's A New General Atlas (London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown & Green; 1828-1830 [first edition]). This historically interesting map was issued shortly before the Belgian Revolution of 1830, which saw Belgium's secession from the Netherlands, and the 1839 Treaty of London which recognised Luxembourg's independence. Sydney Hall (1788-1831) was one of the most recognised and prolific British map engravers at the time when Britain excelled in map making.
