This large copper-plate engraved original antique map of Norway with parts of Sweden - with an inset map of Lapland - was engraved in 1796 - the date is engraved at the foot of the map - and was published by Franz Joseph Von Reilly in his 1794-96 Grosser Deutscher Atlas.

Von Reilly was a Viennese art dealer who in his early twenties turned to map publishing, and between 1789 and 1806 produced a total of 830 maps.
