Map Maker: Johann Gottlieb Facius / Georg Sigismund Facius
Place / Date: Bonn / 1769
Rare Facius brothers map of Eastern Europe, including Poland, Lithuania, Russia and Ukrain, published in Bonn.
The Facius brothers were born in Regensburg and trained as engravers in Brussells. By 1776, there work had become well respected and they moved to London, at the request of John Boydell, with whom they worked for a number of years as engravers. As the map was produced when they were still quite young and because they did so few maps, the map is also interesting as a rare example of their work in cartographic material.
