A detailed plan of the Siege of Sevastopol, marking the locations of the British, French, Turkish and Sardinian troops and their Russian opponents.
Wyld's adoption of lithography to print his maps allowed him to frequently update this map during the course of the war, even making changes within an edition. Less than two months after the 2nd edition, this example now has the positions of the Allied Batteries that opened fire on Sevastopol on the 5th October. Lord Lucan's cavalry is shown deployed around Balaklava, with no mention of the Russian attack, the Battle of Balaklava, 25th October.
