A stunning map clearly indicating the historical towns of Pest & Buda taken from our slightly later 19th century collection. The cartographer behind this map, László Vörös, was seemingly a jack of all trades: a surveyor, engineer, engraver and, not to mention, highly accredited cartographer. Buda and Pest became one, Budapest, as the result of a national development movement led by count István Széchenyi att he start of the 19th century. The count commissioned Vörös to construct a detailed and accurate map from the resources available at the time in order to formulate a plan as to where the bridge connecting the two ancient towns should be built. This was the result and Vörös had the map published in 1833.
Please note that framing will be subject to a surcharge over and above the indicated price due to the unusually large dimensions of this extraordinary piece.
