Description

The map shows the government Ljubljana and Trieste, before the construction of the railroads

A larger, decoratively coloured map without an imprint or a signature, shows the Gouvernement Ljubljana and Trieste, before the construction of the railroad. Gubernium or Gouvernement Laibach (Ljubljana) existed until  1849

The map is not signed, possibly because it used the data from contemporary maps, made by large Viennese publishers without

It is possible, that the publisher was Jožef Blaznik (1800–1872) from Ljubljana. The style of the lines around the title, slightly elaborate lettering, as well as the hand colour correspond to his other map, all of which were separately published and are rare today.

Blaznik was running the largest printing press in Ljubljana in the Crain, at the time in Austria, and was responsible for publication of all the leading newspapers and important first editions. Maps from the Blaznik press are exceedingly rare and not well researched.
