The hand-colored Maps of the World, Europe and Asia on this page are very typical of the "historical" type atlas produced in England in the 1800s.  In addition to portraying the geography of a region, the maps are produced at different times in history showing the changing boundaries of countries and empires, the rise and fall of cities and routes of "great voyages of discovery".

The level of detail is extraordinary - Plate 7 includes an inset of Jerusalem highlighting many points of interest (Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Gate of David, Palace of the Templars).

Each map is provided with the original page of commentary authored by the historian Karl von Spruner.
