Description: Antique map titled 'Austrian Empire'. Old map of the Austrian Empire, with an inset map of Vienna. This map originates from 'A New Universal Atlas Containing Maps of the various Empires, Kingdoms, States and Republics Of The World (..) by S.A. Mitchell. 

Artists and Engravers: Samuel Augustus Mitchell was an American geographer. Mitchell worked as a teacher before turning to publishing geography textbooks and maps. He became involved in geography after teaching and realizing that there were so many poor quality geographical resources available to teachers. He was in Philadelphia when he founded his company. His son, S. Augustus Mitchell, became owner in 1860. Their publications covered all genres of geography: maps, travel guides, textbooks, and more.
