This stunning detailed map of Sarajevo was made in the first years of the 20th century in city itself and marks streets, factories, public buildings, barracks, mosques, churches and cemeteries (Muslim, Christian and Jewish), in Bosnian and German language, when the city, under the Austro-Hungarian rule, was a vivid multi-cultural center.

The map was published by Adolf Walny in the address book of a newspaper Bosnische Bote – Bosanski glasnik (Bosnian News), of which Walny was an owner and editor.

The map was a cause of one of the first biggest copyright lawsuits in Sarayevo. In 1907 it was plagiarized by Daniel A. Kajnon, who was a year later taken to court by Walny (Hana Younis, (Pre)štampa(va)nje djela i autorska prava početkom 20. stoljeća u Bosni i Hercegovini, In: BOSNIACA 2020, 2, pp. 88-98)
