Four-plate engraving by J. E. Mansfeld, mounted on cloth and framed under glass. 131 x 162 cm.


Probably the most monumental layout plan of the Vienna inner city ever published, doubling the scale of Nagel's better-known (and more common) plan of Vienna and its suburbs (1781), and self-published as early as 1774. Nagel had begun his surveying task shortly after completion of the re-numbering of houses in 1770. "Probably completed in October 1774" (cf. Dörflinger).

Slight browning to margins, otherwise fine. Extremely rare.

Dörflinger, Österreichische Karten des 18. Jhs. I, 71 and note 115. Not in Mayer or Eckl colls.
