  2. Hauslab-Liechtenstein map collection

    approximately 10,000 items. 78 folios . -- Geography and Map Division, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.

    Summary:

    The Hauslab-Liechtenstein map collection contains some 10,000 manuscript and printed sheets. A large portion of these map and atlas sheets were compiled by the Austrian cartographer and general Franz Ritter von Hauslab. These were later acquired by Prince Jordan II of Liechtenstein, whose own maps complemented the Hauslab collection, hence the name Hauslab-Liechtentstein. Within the collection there are examples of various types of map reproduction, including copper engraving, lithography, photolithography, zincography, heliogravure, sun prints, and transfers. The collection also includes maps illustrating various techniques of cartographic representation and symbolism. There are large numbers of military, campaign, fortification, and battle maps and plans illustrating most of the major conflicts between the 1600s and 1800s. Among other distinctive groups are maps, sketches, and views of volcanoes, panoramic and perspective maps, geologic and geognostic maps, and language and ethnographic. Another distinctive category includes large and medium scale topographic maps series, including two hand-colored sets of the famous 1:86,400 Cassini survey of France, in 182 sheets, issued during the period 1744 to 1783. This is the earliest official topographic survey of an entire country. In addition, there are maps of the world, of all the continents, and of many individual countries, provinces, states, and cities. American maps are few in number. However, the collection is rich in European maps of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, with emphasis on the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
