This simple map shows the landlocked region of Bohemia, part of the modern-day Czech Republic. A variety of cities, geographic features, and political regions are labeled throughout the image. Topography is depicted pictorially and the Elbe River can be seen running from Dresden (upper center) into the heart of the territory. The capital at Prague is shown in the center of the kingdom, surrounded by other constituent parts of the Holy Roman Empire.
The map was published in London by Thomas Bowen around 1790. At the time, the region was beginning to undergo a revival of Czech identity and the beginnings of nationalism, as the majority of inhabitants were Protestant under Austrian (Catholic) subjugation.
