Description:

Map of Sweden, Norway and Finland with a large elaborate title cartouche by the Homann Heirs company, the most important German map publishers of the eighteenth century. Sweden fought numerous wars with Russia throughout the eighteenth century, most notably during the Great Northern War (1700-21) which was initiated by the young Swedish King Charles XII, who made early successes but unwisely attempted to invade Russia and reach Moscow. Sweden was severely weakened as a result but a group of nobles who called themselves the &#8216Hats&#8217 refuse to admit defeat and engaged in successive, though unsuccessful, wars known as the &#8216Hats&#8217 Wars. This map was published shortly after the war of 1741-3.

The Homman family became the most important map publishers in Germany in the C18th. The business was established by Johann Baptist in Nuremberg in 1702. Soon after publishing his first atlas in 1707 he became a member of the Berlin academy of Sciences and in 1715 was appointed Geographer to the Emperor. After his death in 1724, the firm continued under the direction of his son until 1730. It was then bequeathed to his heirs on the condition that it continued to trade under the name Homann Heirs.
