Wide margined example of the northeastern sheet of F.A. Schraebl's 4 sheet wall map of North America, published in 1788.

The map extends from Charleston and Hilton Head, South Carolina in the south to Hudson's Bay and Newfoundland, centered on the Northeastern part of the newly independent United States.

Much of the detail in the map is credited to Governor Thomas Pownall, from whose map this map was largely adapted.

Extensive annotations throughout the map in German.

Schraembl was born and worked in Vienna, where he was a mapmaker in the latter half of the eighteenth century. He began his business in 1787, partnering with Franz Johann Joseph von Reilly. He is best known for his large format atlas, the Allgemeiner Grosser Atlas. The atlas was finished in 1800, after twenty years of compilation and composition--it was the first Austrian world atlas. While a notable work, the atlas did not sell well, plunging Schraembl into financial difficulty. In response, Schraembl expanded his offerings to include literature and art. Upon his death, Schraembl's firm was taken over by his widow, Johanna, and her brother, Karl Robert Schindelmayer. From 1825, it was run by Franz Anton's son, Eduard.
