1786 Postal Map of Germany by Homann

These scans are from Nouvelle carte geographique des Postes d'Allemagne , New map of the Postal Routes of Germany, done for Fuersten Carl Anselm, Prince of Thurn and Taxis, who ran the postal monopoly (granted under the Hapsburg dynasty) for most of modern Europe at the time, from Spain to Hungary.

The map is split into 16 parts, each folded, and thus could be carried as a very detailed pocket atlas or the edges could be trimmed and it could be mounted as a large wall map. The 17th section is small, singlepage overview map of the area covered by its larger counterpart. Each map sheet measures about 10.5x8.75 inches (26.5x22cm), giving the assembled dimensions of 42x33.5 inches (106x88cm). It is very detailed and is an invaluable resource for those studying the postal routes of the time.
