WYLD, James. [A contemporary map of the Siege of Sevastopol]
The Environs of Sevastopol with the Batteries & Approaches. Seventh Edition. London: September 1st 1855. Original colour. Dissected and laid on linen as issued, total 690 x 505mm. A few small stains, surtitle slightly trimmed.
A detailed plan of the Siege of Sevastopol, marking the locations of the British, French, Turkish and Sardinian troops and their Russian opponents. Bottom right is a plan of the Russian attack on Ottoman-held Eupatoria (Yevpatoria) on 17th February 1855, regarded as the most important military engagement away from Sevastopol. Wyld's adoption of lithography to print his maps allowed him to frequently update this map during the course of the war. This example was published near the end of the long siege of Sevastopol. Compared to the Sixth edition it shows the French troops gathering around the Malakoff redoubt and the British around the Great Redan just to the south; in the Great Harbour the ships of the Russian fleet not already scuttled to block the harbour are marked 'destroyed'. Although this is marked 'Seventh Edition' there are also different states within each edition; for example the Sixth edition (March 31st 1855) appears both with and without the inset plan of Yevpatoria. BAYNTON-WILLIAMS: Maps of War, p.208 (sixth edition illustrated).
